In 1970, Toni Morrison published The Bluest Eye, which prominently features black female children and adolescents, who she considered to be the “most vulnerable, most undescribed, not taken seriously" characters in literature. Since that time, many authors have paid increased attention to black girls in their works; yet, a great deal of these children and adolescents still commonly exist as backstory or props for more centralized adult characters. However, as Afrofuturism offers broadened representations of and opportunities for African Americans in literature, the genre can also extend fundamental freedoms and alternative realities to black girl characters.

51st NeMLA Convention | March 5-8, 2020 | Boston, MA

Feminist film critics have pioneered work on the intimate relationship between gender and genre, thus problematizing and unsettling long-standing dominant narratives, structures of looking, and spectatorial positions. Indeed, much of the work by feminist filmmakers showcases an innovative use of genre conventions that opens up new narrative avenues and destabilizes audiences' expectations. Considering its historical dimension, the notion of film genre becomes an invaluable category and analytical tool to explore questions not only of sexual difference, but also of sexual orientation, race, class, or culture.
