Critical Dialogue Series: Noel W. Anderson

Attention Tyler and Temple students: Noel W. Anderson’s research focuses on the spectacle of the black male body as misrepresented through the power of media. Within the off-putting form of tapestry weaving, Anderson realizes the conflations, contradictions, and competencies of meaning. Guiding his approach, is a strong belief in what he calls “black maternal mathematics.”
