American Studies Association Conference


I have organized a panel "Step into the Arena: Visualizing Boxing and Wrestling in American Culture" for the Annual Meeting of the American Studies Association in Los Angeles. The panel includes papers by myself, Teresa Leininger-Miller (University of Cincinnati), Alma López (UCLA), and C. Richard King (Washington State University). Aaron Baker (Arizona State University) will moderate. My paper “The Greatest: Muhammad Ali and Black Sexuality in Contemporary American Art” will present my most recent research on the intersections of athletics and aesthetics in contemporary African American Art.
