About the Network

The Du Boisian Scholar Network is a community of scholars who identify as working in a Du Boisian mode of thought. This is broadly defined as scholarship that understands race and racialization to be primary constitutive elements of modern society. Graduate students and faculty who believe emancipation and liberation are the primary goals of knowledge production are strongly encouraged to join the Networkeven if their current research does not center on race or racialization.

In addition to establishing an intellectual agenda to pursue these goals, the Network is committed to supporting and legitimizing the work of young scholars, particular scholars of color who aim to expand the boundaries of scholarly inquiry. This includes connecting self-identified Du Boisian scholars with one another to create extra-institutional support systems for junior scholars, as well as incorporating the work of Du Bois and other radical scholars into curricula of higher education institutions across the United States.
