The Department of African American Studies at Northwestern University is pleased to host, “A Beautiful Struggle: Transformative Black Studies in Shifting Political Landscapes—A Summit of Doctoral Programs." The event will take place April 12-14, 2012 at the Orrington Hotel, adjacent to the Northwestern University campus.
Please join us for what promises to be an exciting and stimulating set of discussions about the past contributions, current questions, and future directions of African American Studies and the state of doctoral education in the field. This conference will be of particular interest to institutions that are currently contemplating creating or expanding graduate programs in African American Studies.
The conference will feature keynote addresses by Elizabeth Alexander, Thomas E. Donnelley Professor of African American Studies & Professor American Studies & English at Yale University, and Darlene Clark Hine, Board of Trustees Professor of African American Studies and History at Northwestern University. We are especially pleased to announce that the dissertating graduate students of Northwestern's African American Studies Department will be presenting at this event.
