Black film and literature, feminist studies and social justice theory

Dr. Rogers' current book project, The L.A. Rebellion: Feminist Interventions and Institutional Claims, examines the Black feminist aesthetic and filmmaking practices of the L.A. Rebellion student film movement. The book argues that L.A. Rebellion student filmmakers' claims to the university and its resources as a space for feminist, anti-racist, and anti-capitalist liberatory work run counter to increasing trends toward privatization and corporatization of universities, in general, and film schools, in particular. Rogers is also completing a series of essays on affect and geography in experimental Black documentary film.
