January 17 @ 1:30 pm - 3:30 pm
| Humanities 1, Room 210
“Post Racial Resistance-Black Women, Media, and the Uses of Strategic Ambiguity” speaks about how African American women, celebrities. cultural products, and audiences subversively used the tools of postracial discourse– the media- propagated notion that race and race based discrimination are over– in order to resist its very tenets.
Ralina Joseph is a Associate Professor at the University of Washington, is Director of the Center for Communication, Difference and Equity (CCDE). Dr. Joseph’s second book, Postracial Resistance: Black Women, Media Culture, and the Uses of Strategic Ambiguity, examines how African American women negotiate the minefield of “postracial racism.”
