CAAAS logo   John L. Warfield Center for African & African American Studies

Since its inception at the University of Texas at Austin in 1969, the John L. Warfield Center for African & African American Studies (until May 2008 formerly known as the Center for African and African American Studies) has been a focal point for campus and community life around the cultural, sociopolitical, economic, and historical experiences of African and their descendants.

In collaboration with other University departments, centers, and schools, the Center seeks to establish an activist intellectual community that considers the processes of race, gender, culture, and power operating within and upon Black communities.

Faculty and students affiliated with the Center engage in research and coursework in four principal areas: African and Africans, The African Diaspora, Blacks in the U.S., and Expressive Culture. Operating at the flagship institution of higher education in the capital of Texas, the Center brings together a wealth of graduate and undergraduate course offerings, cultural and intellectual programming, library resources, research fellowships, and conferences to create a strong foundation in African and African American Studies.
