FILM 50.02 Race, Media, Celebrity

How is fame understood through racial difference?  This course explores the dynamic terrain of contemporary celebrity culture as it intersects with race.  Looking accross a range of media formats (music, television, and digital media) we will examine the construction of black celebrity from Barack Obama to Beyonce.  We will engage with the aesthetics and politics of black celebrity visibility, paying close attention to issues of gender, sexuality, and class.  Topics considered include celebrity performance, scandal, and fandom in U.S. public and popular culture.

The Timetable of Class Meetings contains the most up-to-date information about a course. It includes not only the meeting time and instructor, but also its official distributive and/or world culture designation. This information supersedes any information you may see elsewhere, to include what may appear in this ORC/Catalog or on a department/program website. Note that course attributes may change term to term therefore those in effect are those (only) during the term in which you enroll in the course.
