Issues in Critical Investigation
Hortense Spillers, Executive Director
Issues in Critical Investigation (ICI) is an initiative that seeks to stimulate new scholarship in the fields of African Diasporic studies. Designed to broaden perspectives in the relevant fields and to fill a vacuum that exists for young scholars between the time that they complete work for the Ph.D. and when they are reviewed for tenure, ICI is a cooperative venture that aims to sharpen the critical and competitive edge of its participants. ICI will offer two prizes biennially in the Humanities and the Social Sciences for the best book manuscript or manuscript of linked essays on any specific aspect of the study of the African Diaspora.
