Henry Louis Gates, Jr., Alphonse Fletcher University Professor and Director of the W. E. B. Du Bois Research Institute at the Hutchins Center for African & African American Research, has announced the 2019-2020 class of fellows.
“We are happy to welcome one of our most distinguished and exciting cohorts of W. E. B. Du Bois Research Institute Fellows,” says Gates. “We look forward to an extraordinary range of artistic and scholarly work next academic year. Afro-Asian solidarity, the erotics of race, Indo-Caribbean identity in New York City, witchcraft and law in the British Empire, a contemporary chamber opera inspired by secret gatherings of enslaved African Americans, bioethics and African philosophy, and climate change and security threat in the West African Sahel are among the exciting projects which the 2019-2020 Class of Fellows will be pursuing at the W. E. B Du Bois Research Institute, housed in the Hutchins Center.”
