African Diaspora: The African Diaspora and the Idea of Pan-Africanism
Research Cluster Academic Year
Research Cluster Project Director(s)
Andrew Barnes, Associate Professor, History
Chouki El Hamel, Associate Professor, History

This cluster will look backward from present debates to discussions of the African Diaspora as they occurred in the 19th and 20th centuries. These discussions usually took place in the context of the articulation of ideas of Pan Africanism. Thus the title of series of the sessions for next year is Pan Africanism and the African Diaspora: Some Connections, Some Departures. The idea will be to read some of the original thought of Pan Aficanists such as Martin Delany, E.W. Blyden, W.E.B. Dubois, mixed in with some consideration of secondary literature such as the works of Manning Marable and Wilson Moses.
