ABSTRACT
The article presents the author's reflections on the progress of the academic discipline of Africology, also known as Africana studies, in the United States at the graduate level as of 2010 and discussing its possible future trajectories. The author's experiences working within and founding the discipline at Temple University are heavily cited. The essential philosophy of the discipline is discussed, noting how it has changed since it began in 1987 as it has become more established in the mainstream of academics. Suggestions are offered for the future development of the discipline, focusing on the exclusive hiring of faculty with a specific degree in Africology.
