Cultural Hybridity, Race, Gender: Research on Gabriel Byrne

Taking a brief break from Afrofuturism, this episode features an informal discussion between me and my research assistant and former student Adrian Ayers (also a school teacher in the Washington Metro area) regarding ongoing research for one of my book projects,  "Black Irish," cultural hybridity, and the cinematic body: a study on Gabriel Byrne.  Just how did I, as an African American woman whose research and publications has tended to center on gender studies, literary criticism, post-colonialism, and the African Diaspora, end up doing both a book on Afrofuturism and a book on Gabriel Byrne, a White male actor from Ireland?  It's not as far-fetched and unlikely as one might assume when it comes to understanding the politics of cultural production, icon-making, gender, and race.  Tune in and call in with your questions.
