African And Afro-American Studies Program It counts several notable collections among its holdings Veil, an oral history projecton African American life in the African AfroAmerican studies Program. http://www.duke.edu/~kfch/public_html_old/afam.html
Extractions: The courses offered under the Program draw from the rapidly expanding bodies of interdisciplinary scholarship that examine the active participation of people of African ancestry throughout the nation, as well as from studies based on individual disciplines that focus on the same participative activities. The courses and research activities are designed for students and scholars of all races and backgrounds. The scholarly activities in the Program are both rich and mature, and structured to provide a mechanism for bridging the various departments and schools in the investigation of complex issues involved in a subject of such importance to our nation and the world. Symposia and other special events provide important additional measures for bringing together undergraduates, graduate students, professional school students and faculty throughout the University who share common interests in learning more about the African and Afro-American experience in its manifestations. The Program offers an undergraduate major with concentrations either in the North American experiences or the African/Caribbean and Latin American experiences. A certificate is available for those students who prefer a more focused and limited course of study. Beginning this semester we will offer two honors programs: Honors by Distinction and Latin Honors by Honors Projects. The Graduate and Independent Study Programs have been added to the curriculum.
Extractions: American Studies Researcher Examines Black Cultural Production in Chicago, 1915-1935 Invited by the Department of History, Davarian Baldwin taught a 300-level course entitled Going to Chicago: the Great Migration and Urban Culture in the Black Metropolis during second summer session. The 35 or so enrolled students were generally lively and engaged, and quickly adapted to Baldwins pedagogical style fusing lecture and discussion. Like a number of other MFFP fellows, he was fortunate his course topic intersected with that of his dissertation, especially since this summer and academic year represent the most intense phase of writing up his research. Notre Dame offered Baldwin a year-long Erksine Peters Dissertation Fellowship to finish his writing, and so he will reside in South Bend, Indiana, making trips back to New York University periodically over the next year to meet with his advisors. Despite his works strong ties to history, philosophy, African American studies, and sociology, his NYU Ph.D. will come from their American Studies program, notable for its innovative interdisciplinary work in cultural studies. Youve got people like Tricia Rose doing work on black popular culture, Robin Kelley examining history from a black working-class perspective, looking at resistance and agency outside the spectrum of formal politics; youve got Manthia Diawara looking at African American and third world cinema.

Extractions: Hoya Staff Writer When pre-registration for spring classes begins in just over a week, a new course addition could mean the start of a new academic path for some students. Introduction to African American Studies, an interdisciplinary course to debut next semester, marks the most recent development in continuing efforts to create an African American Studies minor at Georgetown. A coalition of faculty, students and administrators has been discussing the potential minor for more than two years. While the minor is not yet an official part of the universitys academic curriculum, the introductory course will measure student interest in the program and would be the initial requirement for students once it gets off the ground. Its not just this [new] course. We are also drawing together a list of those courses that are already in the curriculum that could be applied, Dean of the College Jane D. McAuliffe said. She described the addition of the introductory course to the curriculum as the beginning of a pilot minor to foster interest and development while a proposal is submitted to the universitys Curriculum Committee. McAuliffe said the committees approval, as well as additional consultation with students and faculty, would be necessary before African American Studies becomes an official academic program at Georgetown.
