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 18th 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 2020 issue (17.1) features Pamela Stephens and Manuel Pastor on Black experiences of Latinization and loss in South Los Angeles, as well as Michael J. Saman’s exploration of W. E. B. Du Bois’s engagement with the thought of Karl Marx. Other themes include White opposition to Native Nation sovereignty; examinations of Confederate monuments’ meanings, impacts, and inscriptions; the racialization of Latinx immigrants in (seemingly) positive newspaper discourse; Black girls in the school-to-prison pipeline; a racialized theory of White attitudes toward gun control; and the effect of racial prejudice on White Americans’ attitudes towards marijuana legalization.

The fall 2020 issue (17.2) includes Andrew J. Cherlin’s examination of upward mobility and loss of community in the Black steelworker neighborhood of Turner Station, MD. This issue also considers race, place, and relationship formation in the digital age; skin tone and identification among recent U.S. immigrants; the racialization of Muslim newcomer youth; differences in racial identification among Mexican-origin adults in CA and TX; belonging and anti-Blackness in Portugal; how policing is used to racially segregate residential spaces; Black social interactions on public transportation; race and queer experiences among gay men in Seoul, Korea; and Muslim American double consciousness.
