Welcome to the AALCI

Mic check, 1, two.

Mic check, one, 2.

Welcome to the blog site of the African American Literatures and Cultures Institute (AALCI). Here's where we'll share ideas and present short reports on our thinking and projects during the course of the summer.

The AALCI began with some visionary plans from professor Joycelyn Moody, who noted in one interview that she's hoping to "create a pipeline across the nation’s universities so that the subfield of African-American Studies within the English departments remains vibrant.”

This summer, we'll begin a crucial aspect of building that pipeline by working with a group of Institute Fellows.

Stay tuned.
