ed applicants. The application deadline is January 15, 2013. To obtain more information about the application process, please go to Boston University Graduate School of Arts & Sciences website at <a href="http://us5.list-manage.com/track/click?u=5362e706558f98b44ea455ceb&id=cf7f23766f&e=7546a23e18" style="color: #505050;font-weight: normal;text-decoration: underline;">http://www.bu.edu/cas/admissions/graduate/apply/</a>. Interested students should also contact our Graduate Director, Professor John Thornton, at <a href="mailto:jkthorn@bu.edu" style="color: #505050;font-weight: normal;text-decoration: underline;">jkthorn@bu.edu</a> or the African American Studies Program Administrator, Deirdre James, at <a href="mailto:dejames@bu.edu" style="color: #505050;font-weight: normal;text-decoration: underline;">dejames@bu.edu</a> or (617) 358-1421. <br>  <br>  <br> Sincerely,<br> Professor Allison Blakely<br> Director, African American Studies Program<br> Boston University</span><br>  </span></span><br> </div>                                                                                                           </td>                                                    </tr>                                                </tbody></table>                                                <!-- // End Module: Standard Content \\ -->                                             </td>                                        </tr>                                    </tbody></table>                                    <!-- // End Template Body \\ -->                                </td>                            </tr>                          <tr>                              <td align="center" valign="top" style="border-collapse: collapse;">                                    <!-- // Begin Template Footer \\ -->                                   <table border="0" cellpadding="0" cellspacing="0" width="600" id="templateFooter" style="background-color: #800000;border-top: 3px solid #909090;">                                           <tbody><tr>                                         <td valign="top" class="footerContent" style="border-collapse: collapse;">                                                 <!-- // Begin Module: Standard Footer \\ -->                                                <table border="0" cellpadding="10" cellspacing="0" width="100%">                                                    <tbody><tr>                                                        <td colspan="2" valign="middle" id="social" style="border-collapse: collapse;background-color: #800000;border: 0;">                                                            <div style="color: #ffffff;font-family: Arial;font-size: 11px;line-height: 125%;text-align: left;">                                                                 <a href="https://www.twitter.com/BU_AFAM/" style="color: #336699;font-weight: normal;text-decoration: underline;">follow on Twitter</a> | <a href="http://www.facebook.com/bu.afam" style="color: #336699;font-weight: normal;text-decoration: underline;">friend on Facebook</a> | <a href="http://us5.forward-to-friend.com/forward?u=5362e706558f98b44ea455ceb&id=bb50da3d7a&e=7546a23e18" style="color: #336699;font-weight: normal;text-decoration: underline;">forward to a friend</a>                                                             </div>                                                        </td>                                                    </tr>                                                    <tr>                                                        <td valign="top" width="350" style="border-collapse: collapse;">                                                            <div style="color: #ffffff;font-family: Arial;font-size: 11px;line-height: 125%;text-align: left;">                                                                                                                           <em>Copyright © 2013 Boston University, All rights reserved.</em>                                                                                                                           <br>                                                                                                                               You received this email because you are subscribed to the AFAM general mailing list. For any questions or inquiries please contact <a href="mailto:afam@bu.edu">afam@bu.edu</a>                                                                                                                          <br>                                                                                                                              <strong>Our mailing address is:</strong>                                                                                                                            <br>                                                                                                                              <di
