From the Penn State Newswire for faculty and staff:

Penn State's Africana Research Center (ARC) recently announced its three
fellows for the 2010-11 year and held its orientation on Sept. 1. The program
supports early career scholars and junior faculty who conduct research
centered on or related to Africa and the African diaspora and assists them in
establishing themselves in academia.

The story describes the work of three new fellows, one of whom is Jasmine Cobb, who is an ARC fellow and a research associate in the Department of Communication Arts & Sciences this year.

-- Jasmine Cobb, who completed her doctoral degree in communication and culture at the Annenberg School for Communication, University of Pennsylvania. Her research focuses on both historical and contemporary representations of race, class, gender and sexuality in visual cultures with published works on sexuality in popular music, Black filmmaking, and race on television. For her book manuscript, "Picturing Freedom: Black Visuality in the TransAtlantic Home, 1780-1850," she uses 19th century media to examine freedom as a crisis of visual culture that demanded reconfigurations of race and spectatorship. Cobb is a fellow and research associate in the Department of Communication Arts and Sciences.
