Thanks to a request from staff in History I’m happy to let you know that the Library now has access to Oxford Bibliographies: African American Studies.
Oxford Bibliographies: African American Studies provides bibliographic articles that identify, organise, cite, and annotate scholarship on key areas of African American Studies—culture, politics, law, history, society, religion, and economics. Regularly updated and expanded with new content, this module is one of the first places you should turn to if you are interested in authoritative references to African American Studies.
African American Studies is a vibrant, complex, and growing field, Ever since the national rise of “Black Studies” during the second half of the twentieth century, this field has focused on the distinctive individuals, places, events, concepts, and circumstances of African American history from the seventeenth century to the present—from the early national period, when New World Africans first reckoned with Enlightenment preconceptions of race, to the new millennium, when African Americans continue to negotiate the conditions of their lives in the United States.
Access to Oxford Bibliographies is only available to current students and staff at the University of Edinburgh.
