Lecture: “Holding Blackness in Suspension: The Films of Kahlil Joseph”
Wednesday, Dec. 5, 3:30pm, Cornerstone Screening Room (CAC 131)
Alessandra Raengo’s research focuses on blackness in the visual and aesthetic fields with a particular focus on the critical concept of “liquid blackness.” Her scholarship is moved by the conviction that blackness, as both a visual and racial fact, is the most productive and important starting point to theorize the ontology of images and, similarly, that the “color line” offers the most sophisticated and urgent approach to the conjunction of aesthetics and politics. She is associate professor of Film, Media, and Theatre at Georgia State University.
