Diaspora Projects

Every fall and spring semester since 1999, the Brooklyn Campus has hosted multidisciplinary diaspora projects as a means to expand knowledge and the appreciation of the rich array of cultures across the Campus and community. Diverse performance art, dance, film and panel presentations highlight the uniqueness and beauty of an individual culture within our larger community. For example, “Native Americans: Living in the Diaspora,” is the scheduled theme for October 2006. Other diaspora projects have focused on Brazil, Turkey and the Caribbean. Sponsored by the Office of the Provost, these day-long programs are produced by the dance department through collaborations with the anthropology, communication studies, performance studies and theatre, English, history, media arts, music and visual arts departments.
