Over the course of 2010-2011 âThe Divide That Binds?: African and African American Studies in Conversation,â? will bring four distinguished scholars to the Center for African American Studies to discuss the relationship between the two fields and to foster dialogue about what their collective future holds. Drawing on their own diverse experiences, as institution builders, pathbreaking scholars, and disciplinary innovators, our invited guests will address pressing questions about the logics involved in housing African and African American Studies separately or under a single umbrella. In convening this series we also seek to pay homage to the pioneering role that African American scholars and historically black universities played in founding African Studies in the United States.
This is the third conversation in the series.
Paul E. Lovejoy is Professor of History at York University in Toronto, Canada. He is also the Director of The Harriet Tubman Institute for Research on the Global Migrations of African Peoples.
