Research Methods for Black and Africana Studies

The UWP 'Little Black Book' Series

How To Submit

The ‘Little Black Book’ series by Universal Write Publications will offer a wide range of methods in the professional research of Black Studies. Social science researchers across the African diaspora, especially in the contexts of the Indian, Atlantic, and Pacific Oceans, develop innovative research methods that empower communities to transform racial, ethnic, religious, and linguistic boundaries. These methods too often receive little formal documentation in the academy. In this series, experts in both transdisciplinary and interdisciplinary approaches to the creation of knowledge by blending aspects of several fields will offer a variety of scholarly techniques that raise the standard for academic research in Black and Africana Studies. They are especially relevant to researchers in anthropology, economics, political science, sociology, education, social work, library science, literature, history, philosophy, and religion. Please submit your interest to with the title, a 300-500 word summary on the specific methodology, and your two-page CV showing your work with that method.
