PAGE VIEWS LIVE: A Conversation with Samantha N. Sheppard

On September 25th, Film Quarterly launched PAGE VIEWS LIVE, its new webinar series showcasing the best in recent film and media studies publications. The series kicked off with a conversation between Page Views editor Bruno Guaraná and Samantha N. Sheppard about her highly anticipated new book, Sporting Blackness: Race, Embodiment, and Critical Muscle Memory on Screen.

Travis Vogan (ABC Sports: The Rise and Fall of Network Sports Television) joined for a wide-ranging and highly topical discussion of Sheppard’s groundbreaking examination of race, representation, and the Black sporting body, introduced by FQ editor-in-chief B. Ruby Rich.

Bruno Guaraná’s interview with Samantha Sheppard appears in the Fall issue of Film Quarterly along with a pdf download of the introduction from Sporting Blackness.
