The Project "Diasporic Racisms" is also undertaking preliminary research in the state of Texas to support anti-racism work of U.S. blacks and black and Indigenous immigrants. In addition, we are using the Summer to reorganize and streamline our research and activism. Stay tuned for more information.
Thank you to all of the activists and scholars who have submitted their promising projects for consideration.
Diaspora Consortium hopes to have more funding available next year for
research with slightly different foci. Competition
is open to scholars in various fields of social sciences, humanities,
law, and public health; historically-informed ethnographic work on the
effects of anti-black racisms, including on-the-ground activism and other
forms of self-making; and historical work that seeks to demonstrate connections
to the contemporary moment are of particular interest.
