BLACK AESTHETICS AND AFRICAN CULTURAL EXPRESSIONS JULY 13 - AUG 1


2014 NEH Summer Institute for College and University Teachers

Black Aesthetics and African Centered Cultural Expressions: Sacred Systems in the Nexus between Cultural Studies, Religion and Philosophy is a three-week summer institute, funded by the National Endowment for the Humanities, to give college and university teachers and independent scholars the opportunity to engage in discussions related to the black aesthetic, while they seek ways to broaden and revive interest in this area of scholarship for future research and intellectual inquiry.

The three-week institute will be hosted on the Emory University campus in the summer of 2014.  In addition, during the spring in 2014, and in an effort to understand the multiple meanings associated with black art, its production, and its ongoing relevance as a medium of liberation, the summer institute faculty will build the needed bridges across the city of Atlanta, which can only strengthen our position as a forward-thinking community.

 “… building bridges across the city of Atlanta in an effort to understand the multiple meanings associated with black art, its production and its ongoing relevance as a medium of liberation. We hope to revive interest in this area of scholarship for future research and intellectual inquiry.” - Pellom McDaniels III, Institute Co-Director
