Session Description:

This roundtable examines the need to expand the field of Afro-German studies and presents innovative ways to include Afro-German history and culture in the German language, literature, and culture classroom. Presenters will consider how scholarship, interdisciplinarity, and on-the-ground alliance building intervene in the marginalization of Afro-German studies in the profession and in the classroom.
