African American Studies Faculty-Graduate Seminar

This guide includes resources related to the annual African American Studies Faculty-Graduate Seminar.

African American Studies Faculty-Graduate Seminar

The Faculty-Graduate Seminar is an intimate intellectual community that comes together to discuss work in progress around a common theme across a wide range of disciplines affiliated with African American Studies (AAS). Each year, a faculty convener invites guest speakers to present work-in-progress connected to a specific theme. This guide includes books, articles, and other materials produced by previous speakers. When available, published scholarship directly related to a work-in-progress originally presented at the seminar is featured. The content is updated annually to include the most recent seminar. 

Participation in the African American Studies’ Faculty-Graduate Seminar for one academic year or the equivalent (two semesters) will fulfill one of the requirements for the AAS Graduate Certificate
