“White Mansions, Black Bodies: Jordan Peele’s Get Out and the New Age Slave Plantation”
The College of Liberal Arts and Sciences presents the Fall 2020 Dean’s Lecture, featuring Novotny Lawrence, associate professor in the Greenlee School of Journalism and Communication.
This lecture will discuss Jordan Peele’s horror thriller “Get Out,” demonstrating the ways in which the director employs traditional filmmaking storytelling tropes to examine contemporary racial politics. Peele uses the cinema as a tool for social activism, working to help create a future in which citizens will potentially be more informed about, attuned to, and concerned with fighting against systemic racism.
Following the lecture, please join us for a live Q&A. Details will be provided in the event listing on the LAS Events page.
