This multi-disciplinary seminar epitomizes the diasporic and multi-location orientation of Florida International University's African-New World Studies Program (ANWS). ANWS's geographic reach is Africa, the Caribbean, North and South America, Europe and Asia; conceptually, it embraces the African diaspora. This seminar will give students the opportunity to reflect intellectually upon the great diversity of black subjectivities and African diaspora communities and experiences.
