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.
