The Iowa State Center for American Intercultural Studies

  • Michelle Talbott (Iowa State University)


This workshop will consist of a presentation and progress reports on The Center for American Intercultural Studies, a new academic unit at Iowa State that has oversight of the four programs dedicated to study of major ethnic groups of American society. Maintaining their coherence and integrity as programs, yet collaborating together in and through the center, these four programs are African American Studies, American Indian Studies, U.S. Latino/a Studies, and the developing Asian American Studies Program. The CAIS faculty and scholars are committed to examining the relations of culture, race, ethnicity, and power in American society, and to exploring the means of achieving social justice in an ethnically diverse world. The center will strive to create a campus environment congenial to ethnic and cultural diversity by sponsoring activities and events for the Iowa State community.
