2006 "The State and Future of the Ph.D. in Black Studies: Six Institutional Perspectives." Panel organizer and chair. Association for the Study of African Life and History Conference. Atlanta, GA. September 27-October 1.
In Fall 2005, Dr. Evans conducted a survey of the graduate coordinators at Temple, UMass, Berkeley, Michigan State, Harvard, and Northwestern to inquire about the history and state of doctoral programs in Black Studies. She asked quantitative questions about the makeup of the graduate populations and qualitative questions about the comprehensive examination. The results were published in an article titled "The State and Future of the PhD in Black Studies: Assessing the Role of the Comprehensive Examination" appearing in the Southern Conference on African American Studies' GRIOT (May 2006).
On this panel, department chairs of the programs discussed program origins, where they are at, and where graduate training is going. Over 150 people have earned a Ph.D. in Black Studies and there were about 75 enrolled in 2006--the numbers are increasing. With more programs developing on the horizon, questions emerge about the state of graduate training in Black Studies, especially in light of the fact that no doctoral program in Black Studies yet exists in the South.
