"The article discusses cultural appropriation and the author's claim that American moviegoers want to see films featuring ethnically authentic actors, and it mentions how the director and producers of the motion picture "Gods of Egypt" were forced to apologize to the public for casting mostly Caucasian actors to portray Egyptian deities in the film. Actor Gerard Butler, a debate about the skin color of ancient Egyptians, and the theatrical production "Hamilton" are examined."
"The first volume in the re-launched series Shakespeare on Screen is devoted to Othello, offering up-to-date coverage of recent screen versions as well as new critical essays on older, canonical films. An international cast of authors explores not only productions from the USA and UK, but also translations, adaptations and appropriations in Québec, Italy, India, Brazil and Mexico. The volume takes part in the ceaseless cultural investigation of what Othello says about Shakespeare, the past and our present time, supported by an invaluable film-bibliography. Accompanying free online resources include a fuller version of the bibliography and an additional contribution on YouTube versions of Othello. This book will be a valuable resource for students, scholars and teachers of film studies and Shakespeare studies."
"Is there something morally wrong with cultural appropriation in the arts? I argue that the little philosophical work on this topic has been overly dismissive of moral objections to cultural appropriation. Nevertheless, I argue that philosophers working on epistemic injustice have developed powerful conceptual tools that can aid in our understanding of objections that have been levied by other scholars and artists. I then consider the relationship between these objections and the harms of cultural essentialism. I argue that focusing on the systematic nature of appropriative harms may allow us to sidestep the problem of essentialism, but not without cost."
"In nontraditional casting, actors fill roles in which they differ physically from the character they play, most often by race. This practice stretches norms of representation and calls on audiences to suspend their ordinary assumptions about what bodily characteristics convey. Drawing on theater professionals' experiences with and opinions about nontraditional casting based on race or ethnicity, this paper analyzes what such casting decisions reveal about contextual variability in the meanings attached to physical signifiers of race."
"The writer contemplates the possibility of transcending the conventional limits set by theater, particularly with regard to casting roles irrespective of actors' gender, age, race, and body type. He contends that notions of gender, age, race, and body type are reflective of contemporary sociopolitical meanings and are greatly influenced by art, fashion, and popular entertainment. He observes that, although progress has been made to a certain extent in transcending the limits of race and ethnicity in theater, the same cannot be said in the case of gender. He focuses on the possibility of detaching role-characteristics from actor characteristics."
