DISTINGUISHED DU BOIS LECTURE

Gayatri Chakravorty Spivak
University Professor and Founding Member of the Institute for Comparative Literature and Society, Columbia University

W.E.B. Du Bois in Today's World

October 19, 2017

In this lecture, I offer a new reading of _The Souls of Black Folk_, with reference to Antonio Gramsci and Tillie Olsen. My readings will be in the context of the largest sectors of the electorate in Africa and Asia today, and their relationship with Du Bois's struggles as they developed out of recognizable German contexts, Gramsci's invocation of the production of the subaltern intellectual, and Tillie Olsen's background in Rosa Luxemburg's Mass Strike.

In cooperation with the American Academy in Berlin.

Exact place and time to be announced.
