Middle Passages: Gendered Diasporas is an educational site dedicated to decolonizing our worldviews as we map black women's lives and narrate transnational and transhistorical stories of how they cross borders, exchange cultures, and forge diasporic identities.

We link history with the present day as we focus on "gendering" the history of the Middle Passage, highlighting women's stories, and connecting this past with contemporary examples of migration, trafficking, and cultural flows.

The above topics - researched by students enrolled in Black Diasporas, Feminisms, and Sexual Politics - explore specific regions and feminist concerns within the black diaspora.
