An interdisciplinary group of three faculty members from the African American Studies, English, and Philosophy departments (Joseph Jordan, Sheri I. Hoem, and John Frederick Humphrey) and four students investigated questions of cultural identity and subjectivity at the intersection of literature, literary theory, philosophy, art, and history, beginning with the ''Black Aesthetic'' theory. Two members of this community (a faculty member and student) presented a paper on the research project at the Creating and Sustaining Learning Communities Conference held in March 1999.
