W. E. B. Du Bois is usually remembered as a sociologist and civil rights campaigner, and his analysis of race and racism continues to shape the way social scientists think about these issues today. But a genuine polymath, he was also a skilled philosopher and in this event we will consider Du Bois’s philosophical thought, from art, propaganda, and science, to the very purpose of philosophy itself.

Liam Bright (@lastpositivist) is Assistant Professor of Philosophy at LSE.

Brian Kelly is Reader in History at Queen’s University Belfast.

Meera Sabaratnam is Senior Lecturer in International Relations at SOAS.

Jonathan Birch is Associate Professor of Philosophy at LSE.

The Forum for European Philosophy (@ForumPhilosophy) is an educational charity that organises a full and varied programme of philosophy and interdisciplinary events in the UK.
