> by Marlo David
> On the 50th anniversary of the establishment of the first U.S. Black Studies department at San Francisco State University, we will convene an interdisciplinary group of scholars, activists, artists, and administrators to address the past, present, and future of our field. The symposium presents an opportunity to think about the shifting intellectual priorities within Black Studies and the institutional demands facing contemporary African American Studies departments and programs. Further, it provides an occasion to strategize ways to invigorate the discipline and address the challenges of our times. The symposium seeks to address two distinct, but overlapping themes. Intellectual Histories addresses the movements, theories, schools of thought, and other scholarly contributions of the field. Institutional Demands refers to the everyday politics of running Black Studies programs within the academy. This includes undergraduate and graduate curricula, hiring, fundraising, tenure and promotion, etc.
