9780822328698: Constructing the Black-PB: Identity and Ideality in African American Men's Literature and Culture 1775-1995 (John Hope Franklin Center Book)
Críticas:

"A most impressive interrogation into the problematic of black masculine identity as it has manifested in the U.S. context from the late eighteenth century through the present day. Readers from across a range of disciplines will be uniformly impressed by the scope and dexterity of Wallace's critical intelligence. This is an overwhelmingly admirable achievement and a very important book." - Phillip Brian Harper, author of Are We Not Men? Masculine Anxiety and the Problem of African-American Identity "Highly original and deeply probing it its analyses into the intricacies of its topic, Constructing the Black Masculine is a timely and rewarding addition to the study of African American literature, American studies, and race and sexuality. Maurice O. Wallace has a lot to teach." - Nellie McKay, University of Wisconsin

Reseña del editor:

In seven representative episodes of black masculine literary and cultural history - from the founding of the first African American Masonic lodge in 1775 to the 1990s choreographies of modern dance genius Bill T. Jones - Constructing the Black Masculine maps black men's historical efforts to negotiate the frequently discordant relationship between blackness and maleness in the cultural logic of American identity. Maurice O. Wallace draws on an impressive variety of material to investigate the survivalist strategies employed by black men who have had to endure the disjunction between race and masculinity in American culture. Highlighting their chronic objectification under the gaze of white eyes, Wallace argues that black men suffer a social and representational crisis in being at once seen and unseen, fetish and phantasm, spectacle and shadow in the American racial imagination. Invisible and disregarded on one hand, black men, perceived as potential threats to society, simultaneously face the reality of hyper-visibility and perpetual surveillance. Paying significant attention to the socio-technologies of vision and image production over two centuries, Wallace shows how African American men - as soldiers, Freemasons, and romantic heroes - have sought both to realise the ideal image of the American masculine subject and to deconstruct it in expressive mediums like modern dance, photography, and theatre. Throughout, he also draws on the experiences and theories of such notable figures as Frederick Douglass, W. E. B. DuBois, Booker T. Washington, and James Baldwin. Combining literary theory, visual art theory, race and ethnic studies, psychoanalysis, and performance studies, this book will interest students and scholars of race, literature, gender studies, and American history and culture.
