African and African-American Studies (AFAS)

Affiliation:   Washington University in St. Louis

Brief Profile:   The Washington University in St. Louis Program in African & African-American Studies (AFAS) seeks to be the Nation’s premier program in the study of people of African descent in the United States, Africa, and the rest of the latter’s Diaspora. The interdisciplinary AFAS program at Washington University is home to leading scholars in disciplines across the humanities, the social and behavioral sciences, and the performing arts. AFAS scholars and artists persuasively illustrate the development of various black cultural traditions around the world that may have their roots Africa but are forged under globally diverse local conditions. Moreover, our work is translational and clearly demonstrates why such scholarship is relevant not only to people of African descent but also to people of diverse cultures and backgrounds, in the United States and around the world. The AFAS program continues to build on more than four decades of intellectually rigorous, culturally responsive, and socially
