Research and Collaboration
Africana studies is a tradition of intellectual inquiry and study of African peoples. Africana scholars document the global migrations and reconstruction of African peoples as well as patterns of linkages to the African continent (and among the peoples of the African diaspora). The Africana Studies and Research Center is comprised of nationally and internationally recognized scholars and educators, socially conscious intellectuals and students representing each of Cornell's undergraduate and graduate schools and colleges.
