RACE AND REPRESENTATION: THE BLACK BODY IN MEDIA, LITERATURE AND THE ARTS
This one day symposium will examine how the black body is represented in literature, media and the Arts. This symposium features several panel presentations and round table discussion, with a keynote lecture by Provost Lecture Series Speaker Deborah Willis Ph.D. My paper entitled “Equivalent Exchange: Representing the Black Male Nude as Artist, Model and Subject,” examines how men of color have represented themselves nude in painting, and features my effort with Equivalent Exchange to contextualize my own body within that history. Hosted by the Department of Africana Studies. Sponsored by the College of Arts and Sciences, The Humanities Institute, Department of Cultural Analysis and Theory, and The Department of European Languages.
