Mar 4 6:30 PM - 8:00 PM
The MA in Critical Studies and MFA in Visual Studies programs are excited to welcome Rizvana Bradley to present a public lecture on her work and research as part of the Hallie Ford School of Graduate Studies Lecture Series.
Rizvana Bradley is Assistant Professor of the History of Art and African-American Studies at Yale.
She holds a BA from Williams College and a PhD from Duke University. Bradley’s research and teaching focus on the study of film and media at the intersections of literature, poetry, contemporary art and performance. Her scholarly approach to artistic practices in the fields of African-American cultural production, as well as the wider black diaspora expands and develops frameworks for thinking across these contexts, specifically in relation to global and transnational artistic and cinematic practices.
Bradley is currently at work on two new scholarly book projects. The first is a recipient of a Creative Capital | Andy Warhol Foundation Arts Writers Grant, and offers a critical examination of the black body across a range of experimental artistic practices that integrate film and other media. Bradley guest edited a special issue of the journal Women and Performance: A Journal of Feminist Theory, and has published articles in TDR: The Drama Review, Discourse: Journal for Theoretical Studies in Media and Culture, Rhizomes: Cultural Studies in Emerging Knowledge, Black Camera: An International Film Journal, and Film Quarterly. She was a Helena Rubinstein Critical Studies Fellow at the Whitney Museum of American Art in New York.
