The "Transnational Dialogues in Afro-Latin American and Afro-Latinx Studies" Institute will explore transregional, transnational, and interdisciplinary scholarship and curricula addressing the African diaspora in Latin America and its diasporic populations in the U.S. Organized into three parts - Historical Dialogues, Cultural Dialogues, and Afrolatinidad Futurities - this two-week program is proposed for June 6-17, 2022. It will support 25 higher education faculty who seek a deeper scholarly engagement at the intersections of Africana, American, Latin American, and Latinx studies. Participants’ intellectual and pedagogical growth will be facilitated through presentations, discussions of texts and primary sources, mentoring opportunities, workshops, and excursions.
