Black Camera will devote this special issue to examining, reviewing, and challenging traditional scholarship on Black sexuality in film. Black is meant to cover communities in Africa, Africa America, the Caribbean, and other African Diaspora sites, while sexuality includes LGBTQ, heterosexual, and numerous other sexualities where the object of desire is based on something other than gender.
The editor is interested in essays that deal with filmmakers’, directors’, and screenwriters’, visions of Black sexual desire and pleasure, sexual cultures and subcultures, sexual representation, sexual agency, sexual identity, sexual violence, sexual roles, sexual nudity, sexual foreplay and intercourse within the following possible questions, topic, or themes:
What cinematic techniques do Black filmmakers deploy to represent eros and sexuality? How does class, gender, sexual orientation, geography, and nation impact the representations of eros and sexuality in Black film? How has technology in Black film and video changed or challenged discussions about Back sexuality?
