Welcome to the Black Studies Collective
The Black Studies Collective at The University of Texas at Austin is a collective endeavor like no other Black studies initiative in the country. The Collective draws its strength from four distinct campus units – African and African Diaspora Studies, the John L. Warfield Center for African and African American Studies, the Institute for Urban Policy Research & Analysis, and the Art Galleries at Black Studies.
The Black Studies Collective at UT Austin is a premier research and education destination for students, faculty, visiting scholars, and the community at large. Rooted in anti-racist and Black liberation frameworks, the Black Studies Collective influences the world through field defining scholarship, creative pedagogy, timely and relevant policy research, and robust arts and cultural programming. African and African Diapsora Studies also proudly reviews all submissions for the Rather Prize under the direction of Dr. Kevin Foster and the Rather Prize staff and volunteers.
