AADS Research Center
African American and Diaspora Studies launched the Research Center in summer 2012 with annual seed funding from the College of Arts and Science Dean’s Office. The Center is the research arm of the academic program. The AADSRC sponsors lectures, conferences, working groups, professional development and academic seminars, and activities associated with the peer-reviewed journal: Palimpsest: A Journal of Women, Gender, and the Black International (SUNY Press). The Center also serves as a funding source for AADS faculty initiatives as well as initiatives proposed by faculty external to AADS and Vanderbilt that dovetail with the mission and intellectual thrust of the Center, which includes projects relating to internationalism, gender, sexuality, race, academe, and mentoring.
