Professor Porter Publishes New Book
Book by Professor Eric Porter on the writings of W.E.B. Du Bois, 2010
May 24, 2011
We are pleased to announce the publication of Professor Eric Porter's new book The Problem of the Future World: W. E. B. Du Bois and the Race Concept at Midcentury (Duke University Press). The book is a compelling reassessment of the later writings of the iconic African American activist and intellectual W. E. B. Du Bois. The Problem of the Future World shows how Du Bois's later writings help to address race and racism as protean, global phenomena in the present.
