Faculty Research Projects
Portland State's Black Studies Department has a distinguished faculty who specialize in various fields from psychology to history to urban development. Areas of specialization do not only range in subject matter, but in their regional focus as well. The Black Studies Department covers areas of African, Caribbean and African-American issues.
In addition to teaching, faculty are involved in a variety of research projects. The courses faculty teach are oftentimes very closely connected to their research. Faculty have a diverse range of interests that lead them into activities in their professional disciplines and in the community. Below are just some of the research projects of our faculty.
