Advisory Committee, Administrative,
and Technical Staff

The Center has benefited tremendously from the talents, efforts and commitments of the staff members. In 2003-04 the Center welcomed our talented new publications manager Chryss Yost. With her accomplishments in website design, editing and publications experience, Ms. Yost built significantly upon the important Center publications work of her talented predecessors Irene Jones and Ruth Wilner. For another academic year, the Center’s mission was aided immeasurably by the skills and reliability of our dedicated business manager, Mahsheed Ayoub.

This academic year the Center’s dedicated team was completed with addition of Dr. Christopher McAuley, associate professor of Black Studies. In his short tenure as Associate Director, Dr. McAuley has made many important contributions to daily operations and academic integrity of the Center. Dr. McAuley's areas of research in African Politics, world systems theory, Black intellectual history, Caribbean and Latin American political economy and economic history of the Americas garnered him awards from the Ford Foundation and Center for African-American and African Studies (CAAS), University of Michigan Research Fellowship in Ghana. His recently published book is entitled (The Mind of Oliver Cox). Dr. McAuley is very active at conferences and other professional activities in his field. Dr. McAuley is researching a significant historical project on literary and political affinities existing between African American philosopher-scholar-activist, W.E.B. Du Bois and German philosopher Max Weber.
