  1. The "Batty" Politic: Toward an Aesthetics of the Black Female Body.Janell Hobson - 2003 - Hypatia 18 (4):87-105.
    : I assess representations of black women's derrières, which are often depicted as grotesque, despite attempts by some black women artists to create a black feminist aesthetic that recognizes the black female body as beautiful and desirable. Utilizing a black feminist disability theory, I revisit the history of the Hottentot Venus, which contributed to the shaping of this representational trope, and I identify a recurring struggle among these artists to recover the "unmirrored" black female body.
