The W. E. B. Du Bois Major Works Seminars A Year-Long Journey into the Soul of Dr. Du Bois

In 2012, Clark Atlanta University will host a year-long reading seminar on the major works of W.E.B. Du Bois. The CAU President, Provost, Dean of the School of Arts and Sciences, and Chair of the Department of History will engage in a sustained consideration of Du Boisian texts in preparation for the 2013 On the Wings of Atlanta Commemorative Conference. We encourage scholars of all levels to join the CAU campus, Atlanta University Center, and Atlanta-metro institutions in a nation-wide Sankofa sojourn into the writing of the most profound, relevant and complex scholar of our generation.
