Africana Studies Group

Public Group active 3 months, 1 week ago

Students formed the Africana Studies Group (ASG) in the fall of 2000 to provide an arena of dialogue and support for ideas concerning the broad, interdisciplinary field of Africana studies. The ASG successfully secured a concentration in Africana Studies in May of 2004. In May 2011 an Africana Studies certificate program was implemented at the Graduate Center. Ultimately, we hope that a doctoral program in Africana Studies will be established at The Graduate Center. The ASG encourages input and participation from students and faculty representing the full range of disciplines that comprise Africana Studies. While the ASG periodically elects co-chairs, its structure varies based upon the needs of students and the evolving and competing articulations of Africana Studies.
