THE JAZZ STUDY GROUP

The Jazz Study Group is the origin and core of the Center for Jazz Studies. Founded by Robert G. O’Meally in 1995 with a grant from the Ford Foundation, the Group is a shifting collective of more than thirty members who meet several times yearly to explore new methods of studying the history of jazz, its social context, and its cultural ramifications, cultivating and strengthening the interdisciplinary field of jazz studies as a discrete area of scholarship within the context of African American and American Studies.
