Utretch University, Unsettling Knowledge #6: Unsettling Bridgerton: Race, Representation, and Royalty
The popular Netflix show ‘Bridgerton’ has gained much attention having been praised for its grand designs, luxurious costumes, entertaining plotlines, plus its ‘inclusive casting.’ Set in 1913, the show features a diverse cast, portraying wealthy and elite characters as well as less privileged characters. In this sense, the show aspires to have created a universe that is partly based on history and partly based on fiction. While race, colonialism, and slavery have not disappeared in this fantasy, they are not completely addressed either. Instead, ‘Bridgerton’ walks a fine line in which race is presented as a simplified issue that is solved as a “Black King fell in love with a white Queen.”

In this episode, Dr. Rachel Gillett is joined by guests Dr. Alyssa Sepinwall, Angela Tate, and Rohini Jaswal as they take a look at the ways in which race is presented in the show, examining its successes and its failures, the importance of representation, and the way in which Black History is and should be presented on screen.

The Invisible Seam, Episode 3: Statement Piece
Often unappreciated, but never unnoticed – welcome to the show that celebrates Black contributions to fashion. Hosted by fashion educator Kimberly Jenkins, this five-part series explores moments in history when Black Americans demanded respect, challenged norms, built community and imagined the future – all through what they wore. From The Fashion and Race Database, Tommy Hilfiger’s People’s Place Program and Pineapple Street Studios.

All white, top hat, Sunday best, black beret, denim – these have been tools of protest and catalysts for change throughout history. Now we’re unpacking the relationship between what we wear and what we believe. Featuring Angela Tate, Richard Thompson Ford, Elizabeth Way and Miko Underwood.
