Using the Archive

AAS 21 is a repository of African American Studies scholarly research and public commentary. Among the robust offerings are peer-reviewed journal articles that we make freely available courtesy of Princeton University’s Open Access Policy, op-eds written by faculty which they’ve retained copyright, as well as a host of embeddable media that can be found across Youtube, Livestream, Soundcloud and other dispersed sites. We place these materials in a central archive so that a broad audience may gain a wide understanding, familiarity and fluency with African American Studies scholarship and the critical work of this interdisciplinary field in our society and world. We start this project with the research of scholars at Princeton University.

Exploring the AAS 21 archive is meant to be a clear, accessible and highly visual experience. You can access material in order to gain a primer on a topic just as easily as you may dive deep into a research area.
