Du Bois Review

The Du Bois Review (DBR) is a scholarly, multidisciplinary, and multicultural journal devoted to social science research and criticism about race

Now celebrating its 15th year in print, the journal provides a forum for discussion and increased understanding of race and society from a range of disciplines, including but not limited to economics, political science, sociology, anthropology, law, communications, public policy, psychology, linguistics, and history.

The spring issue of Volume 15, “Color Matters: Race, Ethnicity, Crime, and Justice in Uncertain Times” is guest edited by Ruth Peterson, Lauren J. Krivo, and Katheryn Russell-Brown. In this issue Robert J. Sampson, William Julius Wilson, and Hanna Katz reassess their highly influential work in “Toward a Theory of Race, Crime and Urban Inequality.” Scholars also consider deportation, the living histories of white supremacist policing, and the politics of drug law enforcement in Chicago.

The fall issue (15.2) features Herbert Gans’ paper “Diversity and Diversification Research” which complicates commonly held notions of diversity. Other themes include the multi-method research on modern racism, rap and political participation, preparing low-income Black and Latino students for success in boarding school, the racial implications of state implemented emergency management measures, white womanhood in the era of Travon Martin, intersectionality and LGBT perception of civil right, and the relationship between mass incarceration and racial inequity.
