Graduate Student Speakers Bureau
AASP Graduate Student Speaker Series Program Call for Applications
The UF African American Studies Program Graduate Student Speakers Bureau (GSSB) is a collective of UF graduate students whose dissertation research centers around African American Studies. Beyond conducting research about African Americans, the thesis in progress employs theories and methods informed by African American Studies scholars. Graduate students of the Speakers Bureau will make themselves available for UF and community classes and events. This will be a mutually beneficial relationship that allows emerging scholars to share their research and the campus to benefit from a vast variety of critical race, interdisciplinary, and intersectional expertise.
When speaking on behalf of AASP, the GSSB participants frame their work in terms of the four principals developed by faculty of the University of Florida African American Studies Program, which are: 1) interdisciplinarity; 2) community-based and experiential scholarship; 3) situating the African American experience within a transnational context; and 4) preparing undergraduate students for the next step in their academic and professional journey.
