Cultural Hybridity, Race, Gender: Research on Gabriel Byrne 08/15 by At the Edge An Afrofuturist Salon | Blog Talk Radio.

Taking a brief break from Afrofuturism, this episode features an informal discussion between me and my research assistant and former student Adrian Ayers regarding ongoing research for one of my book projects,  “Black Irish,” cultural hybridity, and the cinematic body: a study on Gabriel Byrne.  Just how did I, as an African American woman whose research and publications has tended to center on gender studies, literary criticism, post-colonialism, and the African Diaspora, end up doing both a book on Afrofuturism and a book on Gabriel Byrne, a White male actor from Ireland?  It’s not as far-fetched and unlikely as one might assume when it comes to understanding the politics of cultural production, icon-making, gender, and race.  Tune in and call in with your questions.
