Courtney Baker: Framing Black Performance – Selma and the Poetics of Representation

February 28, 3:30 pm - 5:00 pm

Free

Foregrounding film as a terrain of struggle, Courtney Baker analyzes the 2014 film “Selma” to illuminate the multiple resonances of the concept of “representation.” Focusing on the film’s femme characters, she argues that cinematic play with the terms and conditions of representation comment powerfully on the limitations of cinematic and historical discourses to speak about the black femme as a political subject.
