The Africana Studies Critical Thought Collective (ASCTC) Meeting
The Johns Hopkins University Africana Studies Critical Thought Collective (ASCTC) is an initiative launched by the Center for Africana Studies in the Spring of 2007. The purpose of this collective is to gather together scholars in Baltimore, the greater Maryland region, and the Washington, D.C. metropolitan area in order to discuss works that are currently groundbreaking in the field of Africana Studies. Each meeting centers on a discussion of either a single article or chapter selections from a major book. Through this intellectual exchange, participants offer perspectives on how the texts impact pedagogy in Africana Studies as well as build a growing network among colleagues in the area contributing their own ideas to theorizing the intricacies of the field.
The work to be discussed is by Eddie S. Glaude, IN A SHADE OF BLUE: PRAGMATISM AND THE POLITICS OF BLACK AMERICA (Chicago: University of Chicago Press, 2007)
Please read it in advance of the meeting.
