~Please join us for lunch and the WGS Intellectual Forum ~
Thursday, February 23rd
12-1:30pm in 14E-304
Kishonna Gray (WGS/CMS MLK Scholar) will present on her current work:
“ Black Masculinity in Contemporary Gaming Culture“
As racial projects, video games legitimize white masculinity and hegemonic ideology through the ‘othering’ process. The mediated story of Black characters is limited and situated within buffoonery (comedy) or crime and gaming is not exempt. Media outlets have created essentialist notions about Blackness and what it means to have an ‘authentic’ Black experience.
Lunch will be served
