Abstract: This work concerns a generalization of Clifford theory to blocks of group-graded algebras. A module-theoretic approach is taken to prove a one-to-one correspondence between the blocks of a fully group-graded algebra covering a given block of its identity component, and conjugacy classes of blocks of a twisted group algebra. In particular, this applies to blocks of a finite group covering blocks of a normal subgroup.
