Research Networks

The Mentoring Committee of the Tejumola Olaniyan Foundation will develop mentoring programs and workshop opportunities to bolster research skills for promising (post)graduate students and early career professionals in a wide range of professional settings, in addition to providing support for existing under-resourced mentoring programs and workshops focused on African and global black cultural studies. The Foundation has a special interest in collaborating with and strengthening research networks located on the African continent and in the wider African Diaspora that are committed to promoting high quality scholarship. In its mentoring activities, the Tejumola Olaniyan Foundation intends to serve as a laboratory for pursuing new directions in African and global black cultural studies. The Foundation welcomes collaborations with all scholars dedicated to this vision.
