The depth and breadth of our faculty expertise in the global study of race and Blackness in the traditional disciplines of English, Anthropology, Literature, History, Politics, Philosophy, Sociology and Art History makes Africana Studies at Cornell a significant resource for graduate students who want to engage in the interdisciplinary study of Black people in Africa, the African Diaspora, and around the globe. There are few departments or programs that match our strengths in:
- Black political, cultural, philosophical and artistic thought and practice in global perspective
- Global studies in Black popular and mass culture
- Race in relation to the study of gender and sexuality.
