Product Description

Imported from USA


"Domino Perez and Rachel González-Martin have assembled a dynamic and eclectic collection that urges us to see, hear,
and place race and racialized representations beyond stereotypical, silenced, and sedentary subjectivities. Engaging the
contemporary social politics of race in television, film, music, and other performative sites, Race and Cultural
Practice in Popular Culture deftly reframes, remixes, and resituates discourse on folklore and pop culture to usher in
nuanced understandings and challenging conversations befitting who we are and where we may be going as local and global
creators, consumers, and critics of the popular." (Dustin Tahmahkera author of Tribal Television: Viewing Native People
in Sitcoms)

"The ugly eruptions of racism and resurgent white supremacy in this 'post-racial' time are grim reminders of just how
vital it is that we understand and engage the complex and contested logics of race in the United States and other
settler states. This volume is an impressive and indeed essential tool for that purpose. The editors have brought
together a community of thoughtful, provocative thinkers in conversation at the crossroads of folklore, popular culture,
critical theory, political action, and lived experience. Collectively and individually the contributors take race and
(self-) representation seriously, in often unexpected, sometimes playful, occasionally fierce, but always compelling
ways; they challenge readers to reconsider our own biases and boundaries around knowledge and cultural production, and
extend the horizon of what is and can be possible in our critical conversations and embodied understandings. Race and
Cultural Practice in Popular Culture offers vital, nourishing intellectual sustenance in these cruel and incurious
times." (Daniel Heath Justice author of Why Indigenous Literatures Matter)
