Programme Structure

The overall mission of the Africana studies program is to provide Lafayette students and the general Lafayette community with access to courses, symposia, lectures, exposure to the arts, and other programming that inform us about the history and cultures of the African continent and the many diverse African diaspora communities throughout the world.

Through ongoing engagement with the most recent scholarship on these subjects, as well as with traditional benchmark works that are foundational in the study of these topics in the academy, the program strives to inform and stimulate students on the subject of the role of Africa in the formation of the modern world and its ongoing impact and participation in globalization processes.
