African Diaspora Studies
The University of Missouri Department of English offers a wide range of courses in African Diaspora Studies that are interdisciplinary, cross cultural, and comparative, at both the graduate and undergraduate level. Our courses focus on the literatures, histories, social worlds, visual cultures, politics, and economies of multicultural and diverse communities of people of African descent across the world. Our major areas of coverage include African American literature, African literature, Caribbean literature and cultural studies, Black British literature, film, African Diaspora folklore, African Diaspora theory, and African Diaspora women's literature. Many of our courses are also cross-listed with Black Studies and Women and Gender Studies.
