Statement of Solidarity with Roderick A. Ferguson and AP African American Studies
The Programs in African American Studies, Ethnicity, Race, & Migration, Women’s, Gender, and Sexuality Studies, and American Studies at Yale University stand in solidarity with our colleague Roderick Ferguson and with all of our colleagues in African American Studies across the country whose work has been caricatured and attacked by Florida Governor Ron DeSantis. Scholarship about Black history, Black Feminism, and Black Queer Studies is integral to understanding every aspect of American life, and we remain committed to the position that the interdisciplinary study of race and other forms of power and inequality is essential at every level of education.

Our faculty work on questions of gender and sexuality from a wide range of theoretical and methodological locations, concentrating our attention on transnational politics and security regimes, public law and sexual violence, reproduction and reproductive technologies, incarceration, social movements and protest, race and racism, neoliberalism, and Islam.
