Hybrid Event in Horizon Hall 6325 and on Zoom
At the intersections of memory, literature, and print culture, my book project explores visual and literary depictions of Black girls and girlhood within Black women writers' aesthetic traditions. I chart how Black women writers and artists utilize memory across genre and time to forge their own distinct narratives with Black girls at the center. In so doing, I demonstrate memory as integral to understanding girlhood as not only a tangible stage and temporal space, but a site of return and recuperation, evidencing new modes for reading and conceptualizing Black girlhood while shifting traditional ideologies around childhood.
