Defining Direction, Building Coalitions: Directing African American Studies at the University of Alabama

Abstract | Word Stems | Keywords | Association | Citation | Similar Titles



Abstract:

This point of discussion comes from the perspective of the director of African American Studies. These talking points focus on what I have found to be the most significant areas for developing and sustaining the African American Studies program, specifically, defining the program’s direction and coalition building. At the heart of this project is the need to recognize and articulate a philosophical understanding of African American Studies. Beginning with Wahneema Lubiano’s statement, “The imperative of the work of Afro-American cultural discourse is and had been (whether explicitly stated or implicitly engaged) to engage itself in a two-part project:…the necessary reclamation of a history and a culture as a revision of the ‘big lies’ of the colonizer and …the resort to cultural modes of struggle necessary in the face of a global economy that marginalizes third world and minority people,” African American Studies at the University of Alabama has a three-fold mission: intellectual, representational, outreach. This presentation examines this mission in practice.
