About

Scott Poulson-Bryant is a cultural historian and critic, with areas of specialization in African American popular culture and performance studies, and his research engages race and gender in Hollywood film, black popular music, and 20th/21st century U.S. drama. He is currently finishing a monograph, Everybody is a Star: Race, Glamour, and Citizenship in 1970s US Popular Culture, which considers how racialized and gendered performances of style and stardom inflected continued pursuits of national belonging after the civil rights gains of the 1960s.
