About the Event

Mediating Black Girlhoods: An Exploration of Feature Film Characters Lisa Covington, M.A. is alumni of San Diego State University and is a PhD Candidate at The University of Iowa studying Sociology of Education, Digital Humanities and African American Studies. Her dissertation work “Mediating Black Girlhood: A Multi-level Comparative Analysis of Narrative Feature Films” identifies mechanisms in which media operates as an institution, (mis)informing individual and social ontological knowledge. Lisa’s research traces the lineage of Black girls in film from the inception of film to the present and includes critical discourse analysis of select films, characters and storylines.   In this workshop, you will learn: (1) to center inclusion in pre production process, (2) to incorporate social-historical contexts when creating visual imagery including films, animation, art, etc. and (3) to develop strategies for differentiating caricatures and characters in narrative films (4) a brief filmography of Black girls in films
