IASPR Sponsored Event: Black Romance Masterclass led by Margo Hendricks on Beverly Jenkins’ Indigo
DePaul’s Center for Black Diaspora is continuing their exciting series of events on Black Romance. Co-sponsored by IASPR, this exciting virtual event will be of interest to IASPR members, popular romance scholars, and popular romance audiences.
The aim of this master class is to offer a pedagogical and scholarly approach to reading and teaching Black Romance fiction, specifically, historical Black romance novels. What this class will offer is a model, using Indigo as the class text, for teaching the literariness of novel, its continuity with the history of the romance genre, and the importance of reassessing the teaching of and writing about Black romance, and the romance genre in general. What the course will offer Black romance readers, scholars, and teachers is a critical approach easily adapted to anti-racist pedagogy and scholarly writing about romance.
This online event will take place on:
February 26, 2022
10 am – 12 pm CST.
Register to attend here on Eventbrite.
Sponsored by the Center for Black Diaspora at DePaul University and the International Association for the Study of Popular Romance.
