African & African American Studies
The interdisciplinary minor in African and African-American studies offers students the opportunity to explore the experiences of Africans and African Americans from a variety of methodological viewpoints.
The curriculum allows students to examine theories of race and how race intersects with gender, sexuality, class, and other factors in a variety of historical and contemporary settings.
Dr. Sarah Roth published "Gender and Race in Antebellum Popular Culture," in which she examines how white women played a critical role in shifting how African American men were perceived in the decades leading to the Civil War through their contributions to popular culture media.
