The discussion will be moderated by Chika Okeke-Agulu (Associate Professor, Department of Art & Archaeology and Center for African American Studies, Princeton University). Key themes include the raison d'etre, strategies as well as challenges of producing scholarship (as texts and exhibitions) in the field of African American and African Diaspora today.

The panel anticipates this year's "Reflections on African American Studies," The Center for African American Studies annual lecture series, given on April 24 by Richard J. Powell (Duke University). It also serves as a rehearsal for a major e-roundtable discussion on the subject to be convened later this year.

This event is open to the Public.
