In the 1980s and early 1990s the scholarly analysis of the Harlem Renaissance became more sophisticated, reflecting increasing interest in the field of African American studies. This volume collects writings that reflect the major changes in the scholarship and the increased emphasis on the role of women in the movement, as well as the application of the methodologies and insights of race and gender studies. In addition, the last 15 years have seen increased interest in the Harlem Renaissance on the part of European and African scholars, and these international perspectives are also included.
