Black Americas Research Network

Transdisciplinary dialogues and hemispheric perspectives

Our network on the Black Americas reaches out to scholars, activists, musicians, performers and artists. This site is meant to generate a research resource and a platform for transdisciplinary perspectives and hemispheric dialogues on the interrelatedness of histories, politics, and cultures of the communities and movements that make up the African diasporas in the Americas. By connecting academic and non-academic actors and bridging persistent demarcations between different research areas this project aims to live up to the multifaceted processes of translocal and transcultural bordercrossing that define the Black Americas.
