“Beyoncé, Black Panther, and the Politics of Pop Culture”
Chris Cartright

On Wednesday, July 24, 2019 from 6:00 – 7:30 PM, Chris Cartright, MFA, Lecturer of English at Georgia Southern University (Armstrong Campus) will examine our media landscape and the competing political ideologies of our era at the Beach Institute on 502 E. Harris Street. Using a few familiar examples Mr. Cartright will look at how contemporary media cultivates cultural attitudes, whether we know it or not. Critical engagement with popular culture–reflecting on media texts in their real social context–can help us better advocate for the cultural values that matter to us.

Please note this change in our originally scheduled lecture for July. Due to a family emergency, Dr. Brunson will be with us in August to discuss the retention of African-American students in predominantly white institutions.

The lecture format will consist of one hour of lecture followed by 30 minutes of comment, question, and answer from the audience. Admission is free to the general public.
