New African Diasporas: Transnational Communities, Cultures, and Economies

Embark on an innovative, comparative study abroad program that takes you from the US, to Senegal, to Italy, and to China, where you will experience the vibrancy and complexity of present-day African migrant communities living worldwide. Rather than studying migration from a historical perspective, this program looks at present-day factors prompting migration from Africa and the vibrancy and entrepreneurial nature of many African diaspora communities, particularly those living in the US, Italy, and China.
