Rap Sessions in Africana Studies are designed for undergraduate students at Johns Hopkins University to learn about and explore the field of Africana studies. The sessions involve doctoral students from within and outside Johns Hopkins University who present the methods and lessons from their dissertation research to undergraduate students. In the process, undergraduate students can learn about various types of research in the field of Africana studies, and ask questions about the practical necessities of entering graduate school and carrying out a study for a dissertation. By featuring a diversity of presentations from doctoral students engaged in different disciplinary areas, the Rap Sessions allow undergraduate students to appreciate both the uniqueness and tremendous breadth of Africana studies.
If you would like to attend Rap Sessions, facilitate a discussion, or find out more information, please contact Anne-Marie Livingston.
