In the spring of 2014, the Department of African American and African Studies offered its first Study Abroad Program to Brazil. Building upon its strengths in African Diaspora Studies, AAAS created the Afro-Brazilian Study Abroad in partnership with the Office of Diversity and Inclusion and the Office of International Affairs; both of which provided students partial funding for the trip, and were instrumental in helping to plan for the trip. Developed, organized, and taught by AAAS professors, Dr. Leslie Alexander and Dr. Curtis Austin, the study abroad experience was a two-semester series, including a spring semester with a course on Afro-Brazilian History and Culture and a three week in-country course in the May term.
