Isabella/Mrs. Weston – Casting in Clueless virtual meeting

February 18 @ 2:00 pm - 4:00 pm EST

Isabella/Mrs. Weston: Why Clueless’s Dionne, an African-American woman was cast to play two roles?

Presented by Damianne (Dami) Scott

This presentation will discuss how the casting of the character, Dionne, is perfect as a modernization of Emma’s Isabella Knightly and Anne Weston, but racially stereotypical.

Dami is an Adjunct Assistant Professor at the University of Cincinnati Blue Ash and an Adjunct Instructor at Cincinnati State.  You can also find her on Black Girl Loves Jane, on Facebook, Twitter, or Instagram, in Persuasions On-Line Journal, and Jane Austen & Company’s Race and Regency Series.
