Africana Studies Group

The Africana Studies Group (ASG) provides an arena for members of the Graduate Center community to discuss ideas regarding Africana Studies. The ASG is interdisciplinary and encourages input and participation from students and faculty from various fields that help comprise Africana Studies.

While the ASG periodically elects co-chairs, its structure is loose, based upon the needs of students and the evolving and competing articulations of Africana Studies.

The ASG has a listserv, which serves as a forum for all those interested in the scholarly pursuit of Africana Studies. The listserv will post ASG announcements and events, as well as serve as a space for discussion. To subscribe please email the IRADAC office:, providing your name, institutional affiliation, and interest of study.
