EVENT: A Talk with Dr. Alfred Martin

Honoraria for Dr. Alfred Martin (University of Iowa); November 9th via Zoom from 6pm-7:15pm

Cover of Dr. Martin's book, "The Generic Closet"

This Wednesday, the Radio, Television & Film Department and the Edelman CCCA DEI Committee is hosting a virtual talk with Dr. Alfred Martin, an associate professor of communication studies at the University of Iowa. Dr. Martin will be giving a modified book talk on his most recent book, The Generic Closet: Black Gayness and the Black-Cast Sitcom. The book draws from interviews with professionals working in all parts of the development of Black-cast sitcoms, and situates them as a “unique genre that uses Black gay characters in service of the series’ heterosexual main cast” (Indiana University Press). Dr. Martin himself is a scholar of media and cultural studies, whose work has been published in numerous scholarly journals.
