Critical Race Theory and Jordan Peele's Get Out, Paperback / softback Book

Critical Race Theory and Jordan Peele's Get Out Paperback / softback

Part of the Film Theory in Practice series

Paperback / softback

Description

This book provides a concise introduction to critical race theory and shows how this theory can be used to interpret Jordan Peele's Get Out.

It surveys recent developments in critical race studies and introduces key concepts that have helped shape the field such as Black masculinity, white privilege, the Black body, and miscegenation.

The book's analysis of Get Out situates it within the context of the American horror film, illustrating how contemporary debates in critical race theory and approaches to the analysis of mainstream Hollywood cinema can illuminate each other.

In this way, the book provides both an accessible reference guide to key terminology in critical race studies and film studies, while contributing new scholarship to both fields.
