- The Center for African American Studies at Princeton University is pleased to announce that it plans to grant certificates in African American Studies to 37 students in the Class of 2013. Students who have earned a certificate in African American Studies have taken the opportunity to study African American history and culture and the role that race has played in shaping the life and the institutions of the United States.
- Next fall, CAAS is offering 11 seminars and/or lectures including AAS 201: Introduction to the Study of African American Cultural Practices. In addition, we will be offering a new lecture taught by Professor Alexandra Vazquez AAS 412: Cultures of the Afro-Diaspora, and a new seminar AAS 327: Blackness in the Early Modern Atlantic World to be taught by Society of Fellows in the Liberal Arts Postdoctoral Fellow in Race and Ethnicity Studies Larissa Brewer-Garcia.
