About BSP

Black Studies Project (BSP) is an interdisciplinary, cross-divisional formation for collaborative and innovative research, intellectual exchange, and student engagement in the field of Black Studies. By convening faculty, graduate students, and undergraduates from across campus and throughout the UC system, BSP creates opportunities for expansive and trenchant conversations at the intersections of Black feminist and queer studies, transnational and Diasporic Studies, and the study of Black social movements. BSP’s public programming, research funding, and sponsored intellectual collaborations, provide valuable opportunities to explores how contemporary social, political, cultural, and economic shifts in the US and globally require scholars, community activists, and campus leaders to collectively reimagine the field of Black Studies. Through these forms of collaboration, BSP will fuel the production of groundbreaking scholarship in the field; the strengthening of graduate and undergraduate education; and the formation of sustainable and mutually beneficial relationships across campus, with local communities and through the UC’s.
