The Center for Africana Studies Summer Institute for Pre-Freshmen celebrates 30th anniversary.
The Department of Africana Studies is devoted to the study of the historical and contemporary experiences of African Americans, Africans, and peoples of African descent around the world. The Department employs a unique interdisciplinary, cross-regional approach to global black studies.
The Center for Africana Studies is dedicated to fostering a deeper understanding of the peoples of Africa, their diaspora and the impact of this diaspora on humanity.
The Africana Media Project is a digital archive of still images and video related to the global black experience. The collection contains both found and original art, including a series of documentary films on the black image, and representations of African and Diasporic cultures and politics.
The Program on Race, Science and Society (PRSS) is devoted to transformative and interdisciplinary approaches to the role of race in scientific research and biotechnological innovations, aiming both to promote social justice and to dispel the myth that race is a natural division of human beings.
The Marginalized Populations project is a collaborative research initiative designed to explore political dynamics between populations with unequal, minimal or non-existent state protections and national governments.
The Programs on Africa highlights the work of Africanist faculty at the University of Pennsylvania, programming, and research on the continent.
