Departmentalize Now! The Imperative for African and African American Studies

September 9, 2020 - 12:00pm to 1:30pm
Zoom Webinar

Since 1968, Black Studies departments have been established across the country, contributing  to the intellectual life of the university and informing larger conversations about race beyond the academy. However, departmentalization eludes many universities, including Stanford. In this Clayman Conversations online event, our panelists will discuss how departmentalization is both a political and feminist issue, and how the university legitimates certain knowledge through departmentalization. Additionally, our panelists will consider the symbiotic relationship between social movement participants and institutions of higher education.
