Critical Thought Collective
The Critical Thought Collective gathers established and emerging scholars in Baltimore, the greater Maryland region, and the Washington, D.C. metropolitan area for conversations about groundbreaking publications in the field of Africana studies. Each meeting centers either on a seminal article or a set of chapters from a recently published book. Through this intellectual exchange, participants share their perspectives on the meanings of the texts and their implications for pedagogy, theory, and research in Africana studies. The meetings provide a forum for building an intellectual community around the Center for Africana Studies and for exploring new avenues for scholarly inquiry in Africana studies.

Copies of the book may be borrowed from the Center for Africana Studies in Room 230 in Mergenthaler Hall.
Date : October 19th, 2017.
