SCMS Undergraduate Conference

Also last month I had the opportunity to present my paper, “The End of Separate Cinemas: Race in 1949 American Film,” at another prestigious conference at the University of Notre Dame.

scms_poster_smallThe paper focuses on 4 films in 1949: Home of the Brave, Lost Boundaries, Pinky, and Intruder in the Dust, and how they challenged the idea of social expression in film with their new portrayals of race in cinema as well as how their reception created a new regional divide between North and South despite erasing the segregation in movie theaters.
