The proposed book will consider how filmmakers of colour (predominantly, but not only Black) have explored white societies, cultures and practices. It will take as its case studies films and television series that treat whiteness, in all its complexities, not as an unmarked and naturalised position from which to speak, but as an object of inquiry and sustained scrutiny.

If you’re interested, please send a proposal of up to 300 words by 31 October 2023 to Thomas Austin at:

The rough timetable is to send the publisher a full proposal by end of January 2024, with first drafts of full chapters to be sent  by 31 October 2024.
