Alternative Representations of Racially Marked Female Bodies

Choose an alternative representation of a racially marked female body (in a medium of your choice: film, photography, or any other visual art, TV series, MTV, etc). You do not need to focus on a black female body; rather you are encouraged to look for other examples of racially marked female bodies (such as Asian, Hispanic, Middle-East etc). Write a short critical analysis (2-4 pages) of how and why the image chosen offers an alternative representation of the female body. Here are some questions that you might consider while writing your paper:
1. Who is the artist/writer/producer and what is the context in which the image is represented? Does it matter if the artist /writer/producer is a female or a male? Does his or her race matter?
2. In what ways does the image represented offer an alternative representation? (Is the woman empowered? Does she take control of her sexuality? Is she allowed to have an identity, to be a subject, rather than an object?)
3. How are relations of class, power and agency portrayed?
4. Is that representation in dialogue with a historical, cultural memory, which it tries to open up and reclaim differently?
