Description - Representing Black Men by Marcellus Blount

Focusing on gender, race and representation in the literary and cultural work of black men, this book examines the ways in which black masculinities figure within African-American and American cultures. The contributors move beyond the demarcation line of the social sciences that have traditionally defined African-American men as absences, and explore the constructions of African-American masculinities as presences in the arenas of theory, culture and literature. Drawing on current literary, feminist and cultural theory, they illustrate an alternate field for interrogating a variety of black male subjectivities. By presenting works by both female and male literary and cultural theorists, the book provides a critical forum for contesting and explicating the ways in which African-American men are represented in our culture, literature and theory. As well as adding the voices of black men to current critical debates about American masculinities, the book takes on the conspicuous absences in current discourse by and about black men.
