The Sociology Department at the University of Massachusetts Boston is excited to host a two-day conference March 24-25th, 2017. The theme of the 12th Social Theory Forum will center on interdisciplinary scholarship on race and the legacy of American sociologist W.E.B. Du Bois. During his long and productive life as a scholar and activist, Du Bois was instrumental in founding both the Atlanta school of sociology and the NAACP, and developed theories, research methodologies, and approaches to political organizing. The 12th Social Theory Forum provides an important opportunity to revisit and extend Du Bois’s work on race.
