About the
Fellowship for Visiting Scholars

The UCSB Center for Black Studies accepts applications annually for our scholar-in-residence position at the University of California, Santa Barbara. We are especially interested in researchers working in the areas of digital technologies and the African Diaspora. The 2005-06 Visiting Scholar fellowship continues the Center’s RACE and TECHNOLOGY (RT) initiative that is concerned with questions of racial justice and universal access to important information technologies that are changing all aspects of life for people throughout the diaspora. We are particularly interested in studies concerned with the intersections of race and technology from a number of perspectives including historical, economical, institutional, sociopolitical, cultural-artistic, global, local, and interpersonal.

Through its new RT initiative, the Center is actively engaged in the development of new regimes of knowledge and cultural production that can reframe public debates about the “digital divide,” universal access issues, information technology infrastructures, and media legislation and policy.
