Harlem Semester

The Harlem Semester Engages Students With Harlem’s Rich History in New Ways

Romare Bearden Foundation

The class “Romare Bearden: Home is Harlem” was taught in partnership with the Studio Museum in Harlem.

The Studio Museum in Harlem

Students in the class “Freestyle and Displacement in Contemporary Art Practices” explored their own subjectivities in ways that intersected with the concepts examined by the artists in the museum.

Harlem Stage

Nineteen students spent the spring semester exploring how James Baldwin’s work examined “the changing geography of Harlem around race, sexuality, gender, religion, and American power."

Apollo Theater

In 2017, Barnard will offer a class in partnership with the Apollo called “Black Women, Performance, and the Politics of Style.”

Schomburg Center for Research in Black Culture

Students pored over personal diaries, typescript manuscripts, and photo albums from the poet, playwright, novelist, and black feminist Ntozake Shange ’70 as part of a course on digital storytelling.

National Black Theatre

A class on art, activism, and social justice during the Harlem Renaissance, taught by English professor Monica Miller, examined formal and informal theatre.
