Critical Thought Collective

The Critical Thought Collective brings together 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.

Past meetings can be found on our events page.
