The “Soul” of W.E.B. DuBois: Fifty Years Later

full name / name of organization: 
Northeast Modern Languages Association
contact email: 
donavanramon@gmail.com

The year 2013 will mark the fiftieth anniversary of W.E.B. DuBois’ death. As the premier historian, sociologist, and civil rights activist of the twentieth century, DuBois certainly left his mark within the African Diaspora and beyond. His seminal work, The Souls of Black Folk (1903) includes his prescient formulation that “the problem of the twentieth century is the problem of the color line.” Later on, he published Black Reconstruction (1935) and founded two journals, Phylon and The Crisis—this latter one was the official publication of the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People (NAACP).

Racism 2.0: Race in the Digital Age

full name / name of organization: 
Northeast Modern Languages Association
contact email: 
donavanramon@gmail.com

In an op-ed piece for the New York Times last year, cultural critic Touré argued for the end of the term “post-race” as a sanguine way to view race relations. It’s a word that began with President Obama’s election, which erroneously suggests that racism is a distant memory. Though the days of Jim Crow and legal segregation are long gone, race and racism are still very pertinent in myriad ways, most notably online. Any website that includes a “comments” section runs the risk of eliciting racist commentary from its viewers, with YouTube being the most notorious example. Certainly the coverage of the Trayvon Martin death has triggered a wave of racist remarks online. Social media websites, such as Facebook and Twitter, have long been breeding grounds for racism. Coupled with digital racism is the growing issue of online passing—a phenomenon in which people of color represent themselves as white using lighter skinned avatars.
