The Department of Africana Studies offers a graduate program leading to the Ph.D. in Africana Studies. Graduate students in the program receive rigorous training in the discipline of Africana Studies and the theories and methods of interdisciplinary scholarship. The graduate program trains students to become skilled and informed scholars poised to make significant contributions to academic and nonacademic communities and initiate cultural, economic, political, and social policies informed by critical thinking and global perspectives on social and human development. Studies in Literary, Expressive, and Performance Cultures Studies in Literary, Expressive and Performance Cultures focuses on the critical study of visual culture, performance, and the literary arts that critique the contributions and (self) representations of people of African descent in global and contested societies. Graduate students with research interests in this area will draw on the methods and theories in Africana Studies as well as engage scholarship in aesthetic theory, cultural studies, literary theory and criticism, media studies, and performance studies.
