    Beschreibung "This thesis is a qualitative study of the social construction of black identities in contemporary popular cinema, specifically the hood genre. Through the use of content analysis, this project critical interrogates representations of blackness in the hood genre as an essentialized construct. Within the master narrative of this genre, the inner city, drugs, gang culture. Maleness and compulsive heterosexuality are the defming signifiers of blackness. This thesis implicates the hood genre as a pedagogical, discursive and ideological site where racialized identities are reproduced and regulated. Furthermore, this project crisscrosses a wide range of theoretical disciplines and critical pedagogical
    practices. which includes Sociology, Cultural Studies, Integrative Anti-racism, Feminist, Queer studies and Post Modernism. At the same time it is also interested in transformation, through critical pedagogy. By exploring issues and questions of representation and re-representation within the genre of third/independent cinema, this project attempts to rupture common-sensical notions of blackness through the production of counter narratives."
