Sir run run shaw lecture series, W.E.B. Du Bois at the Center, Aldon Morris '80, Northwestern UniversitySir Run Run Shaw Series Lecture: W.E.B. DuBois at the Center 
From Science, Civil Rights Movement to Black Lives Matter

Wednesday, October 6, 2021 | 1 pm

W.E.B. Du Bois was one of a handful of scholars of the 20th century with a sustained global impact on sociological, literary, and political knowledge. In this talk, Aldon Morris ’80 will draw on evidence from his book, The Scholar Denied: W.E.B. Du Bois and the Birth of Modern Sociology (University of California Press, 2015), to demonstrate that Du Bois was the founding father of scientific sociology in the United States; that is, American scientific sociology was founded in a segregated black university by a black man. This research disconfirms the accepted wisdom that American scientific sociology was founded solely by white sociologists in elite, white universities. This talk will explore the methods Du Bois pioneered and his novel theorizing that laid the foundations for subsequent sociological analyses. Morris will offer an account of the dynamic forces that generate scientific schools of thought and that undergirded knowledge production in social science during the Du Bois era.
