Special Issue: Beyond Normative: Sexuality and Eroticism in Black Film, Cinema, and Video
The Spring 2011 edition of Black Camera has arrived and is an especially important version which the Black Film Center/Archive hopes can reach film scholars as well as professors seeking to incorporate these readings into their curriculum.
Guest Editor Dr. LaMonda Horton Stallings, Associate Professor of Gender Studies and African American and African Diaspora Studies, delves into the topic of sexuality and eroticism in Black film, cinema, and video.
Stallings states, “all the writers within this special issue of Black Camera diverge from traditional scholarship on black film and challenge what film genres are worthy of study, as well as redefine what is sexual, sensual, and erotic on film” in order to go beyond the traditional normative Black sexuality.
