AMST 0208 - Black Womanhood/Pop. Culture
*Unruly Bodies: Black Womanhood in Popular Culture* In this course we will examine representations of black womanhood in popular culture, analyzing the processes by which bodies and identities are constructed as dangerous, deviant, and unruly. For example, materials will include the work of bell hooks and Patricia Hill Collins to analyze the imagery of black womanhood propagated by the television shows /The Jerry Springer Show/ and /Bad Girls Club/. By contrast, we will also read Saidiya Hartman’s /Scenes of Subjection/ as a lens through which to view “bad” black womanhood as a radically stylized means of redress in the Blaxploitation-era film /Foxy Brown/.
