Professor Michael Hanchard Discusses His Marginalized Populations Project in Penn Current

December 22, 2016

The Marginalized Populations Project, operated out of the Department of Africana Studies, is designed to explore the dynamic interactions between national governments and populations with unequal, minimal, or non-existent state protections.

Hanchard says one of the goals of the Marginalized Populations Project is to further develop and highlight the Department of Africana Studies as a site for innovative, cross-national comparative research on Afro-descendent populations. The project is already fostering relationships and synergies through planned conferences, coursework, curricula, speaker series, and symposia, and partnering with departments and programs across the University to “further illuminate the ways in which many of the conditions of mar- ginalized populations across the black world resonate amongst other populations in other parts of the world as well.”
