Description: How are transnational black communities creating, imagining and reimagining the African Diaspora? African Diaspora Studies offers a framework and set of theoretical interventions for understanding the lives of black people across the globe. As a field of study, it asks what is the historical effect and after-life of several centuries of forced displacement, dispossession and expatriation of millions of Africans. This cross-oceanic transfer of people, labor, capital, ideas, and goods has given rise to a way of thinking about and imaging identity, belonging, and movement that shift away from national identity and frameworks that hinge on the centrality of the nation-state.
