Sporting Blackness

by Samantha N. Sheppard, Sporting Blackness Books available in Docs, PDF, EPUB, Mobi, Textbook, Kindle Format. Download Sporting Blackness book, Sporting Blackness examines issues of race and representation in sports films, exploring what it means to embody, perform, play out, and contest blackness by representations of Black athletes on screen. By presenting new critical terms, Sheppard analyzes not only "skin in the game," or how racial representation shapes the genre's imagery, but also "skin in the genre," or the formal consequences of blackness on the sport film genre's modes, codes, and conventions. Through a rich interdisciplinary approach, Sheppard argues that representations of Black sporting bodies contain "critical muscle memories": embodied, kinesthetic, and cinematic histories that go beyond a film's plot to index, circulate, and reproduce broader narratives about Black sporting and non-sporting experiences in American society.

Sporting Realities

by Samantha N. Sheppard, Sporting Realities Books available in Docs, PDF, EPUB, Mobi, Textbook, Kindle Format. Download Sporting Realities book, Despite the increasing number of popular and celebrated sports documentaries in contemporary culture, such as ESPN’s 30 for 30 series, there has been little scholarly engagement with this genre. Sports documentaries, like all films, do not merely showcase objective reality but rather construct specific versions of sporting culture that serve distinct economic, industrial, institutional, historical, and sociopolitical ends ripe for criticism, contextualization, and exploration. Sporting Realities brings together a diverse group of scholars to probe the sports documentary’s cultural meanings, aesthetic practices, industrial and commercial dimensions, and political contours across historical, social, medium-specific, and geographic contexts. It considers and critiques the sports documentary’s visible and powerful position in contemporary culture and forges novel connections between the study of nonfiction media and sport.

Race Sport And Politics

by Ben Carrington, Race Sport And Politics Books available in Docs, PDF, EPUB, Mobi, Textbook, Kindle Format. Download Race Sport And Politics book, This is the first book-length study to address sport's role in 'the making of race', the place of sport within black diasporic struggles for freedom and equality, and the contested location of sport in relation to the politics of recognition within contemporary western multicultural societies. Race, Sport and Politics shows that over the past century sport has occupied a dominant position within Western culture in producing ideas of racial difference and alterity while providing a powerful and public modality for forms of black cultural resistance. Written by one of the leading international authorities on the sociology of race and sport, it is the first book that centrally locates sport within the cultural politics of the black diaspora and will be of relevance to students and scholars in fields such as the sociology of culture and sport, the sociology of race and diaspora studies, postcolonial theory, cultural theory and cultural studies.

How To Sell Black Athletes To A White Audience The Representation Of Blackness In The Nba From 1984 To 2005

by Till Neuhaus, How To Sell Black Athletes To A White Audience The Representation Of Blackness In The Nba From 1984 To 2005 Books available in Docs, PDF, EPUB, Mobi, Textbook, Kindle Format. Download How To Sell Black Athletes To A White Audience The Representation Of Blackness In The Nba From 1984 To 2005 book, Seminar paper from the year 2017 in the subject American Studies - Miscellaneous, grade: 1.3, Bielefeld University, language: English, abstract: David Stern turned the NBA into a billion dollar business. However, when Stern started his mission, the NBA had a serious image crisis: The league was perceived as drug-infested and too-black. Stern himself claimed that race, if everything else was handled correctly, would not be an issue in professional sports and basketball in particular. With regards to Stuart Hall, this paper will investigate what the dominant, or as Stern phrases it 'correct', way of handling race looks like and what kind of conclusions can be drawn on the basis of that approach. The main focus will be dedicated to the (by the NBA) created image of Blackness and how they try to portray and depict their players.

Modern Blackness

by Deborah A. Thomas, Modern Blackness Books available in Docs, PDF, EPUB, Mobi, Textbook, Kindle Format. Download Modern Blackness book, Modern Blackness is a rich ethnographic exploration of Jamaican identity in the late twentieth century and early twenty-first. Analyzing nationalism, popular culture, and political economy in relation to one another, Deborah A. Thomas illuminates an ongoing struggle in Jamaica between the values associated with the postcolonial state and those generated in and through popular culture. Following independence in 1962, cultural and political policies in Jamaica were geared toward the development of a multiracial creole nationalism reflected in the country’s motto: “Out of many, one people.” As Thomas shows, by the late 1990s, creole nationalism was superseded by “modern blackness”—an urban blackness rooted in youth culture and influenced by African American popular culture. Expressions of blackness that had been marginalized in national cultural policy became paramount in contemporary understandings of what it was to be Jamaican. Thomas combines historical research with fieldwork she conducted in Jamaica between 1993 and 2003. Drawing on her research in a rural hillside community just outside Kingston, she looks at how Jamaicans interpreted and reproduced or transformed on the local level nationalist policies and popular ideologies about progress. With detailed descriptions of daily life in Jamaica set against a backdrop of postcolonial nation-building and neoliberal globalization, Modern Blackness is an important examination of the competing identities that mobilize Jamaicans locally and represent them internationally.

Re Skin

by Mary Flanagan, Re Skin Books available in Docs, PDF, EPUB, Mobi, Textbook, Kindle Format. Download Re Skin book, Skin as boundary and surface, metaphorically and physically: creative and critical perspectives on skin and bodily transformation as it intersects with digital technologies. In re:skin, scholars, essayists and short story writers offer their perspectives on skin--as boundary and surface, as metaphor and physical reality. The twenty-first century and its attendant technology call for a new investigation of the intersection of body, skin, and technology. These cutting-edge writings address themes of skin and bodily transformation in an era in which we are able not only to modify our own skins--by plastic surgery, tattooing, skin graft art, and other methods--but to cross skins, merging with other bodies or colonizing multiple bodies.The book's agile crossings of disciplinary and genre boundaries enact the very transformations they discuss. A short story imagines a manufactured maternal interface that allows a man to become pregnant, and a scholar describes the evolution of "body criticism"; a writer uses "faux science" to explore animal prints on faux fur, and fictional lovers experience one another's sexual sensations through the slipping on and off of skin-like bodysuits. Ubiquitous computational interfaces are considered as the "skin" of technology, and questions of race and color are shown to play out in digital art practice. The essays and narratives gathered in re:skin claim that the new technologically mutable body is neither purely liberating nor simply limiting; instead, these pieces show us models, ways of living in a technological culture.

Who Da Man

by Gamal Abdel-Shehid, Who Da Man Books available in Docs, PDF, EPUB, Mobi, Textbook, Kindle Format. Download Who Da Man book, This book offers a highly original approach to Black masculinities and sport in Canada. The book will be especially exciting for those interested in decolonisation, culture, and the intersection of identity, sport, and politics. 'Who Da Man' attempts to account for the ways that Black Diasporic identifications intersect with the dominant misogyny and homophobia in contemporary men's sporting cultures. Abdel-Shehid suggests that thinking about Diaspora in the making of contemporary Black sporting cultures provides a more comprehensive framework than that which looks at sport solely within the framework of nations and nationalism. He further argues that Canadian hegemonic ideas and practices typically marginalise blackness and Black peoples. Thus, the author suggests, Black masculinities in sport are often connected to Diasporic locations. These connections can be either empowering or disempowering, requiring careful analysis to achieve full understanding of how things are being perceived, projected, and therefore implemented. 'Who Da Man' offers a feminist and queer reading of Black masculinity, and suggests that thinking about Black sporting masculinities means paying attention to the ways that these larger discourses of racism, exclusion, and Diaspora shape Black masculinities. Moreover, the book asks to what extent homophobia and misogyny within men's sporting cultures influence contemporary understandings of Black masculinity.
