The Legacy of W.E.B. Du Bois: lnterdisciplinary Responses

 

In the years 1892-1894, W.E.B. Du Bois studied at what is now Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin (then Friedrich-Wilhelm-Universität). Although the lock of financial resaurces did not allow him to complete his doctorate here, his stay in Berlin and his studies with German economists, sociologists and historians had a strong impact on his work. In 1958, Humboldt University awarded him an honorary doctorate.

Commemorating W.E.B. Du Bois' 150th birthday in 2018, the American Studies Program at Humboldt University honors Du Bois' wide-ranging and influential work, which resonates in many scholarly fields. Students and scholars from various disciplines will reflect on legacy of W.E.B. Du Bois.
