Event Description

ABSTRACT: In her new book, A Duboisian Democracy: On Method, Practice, and Revolution, Basevich draws on Du Bois’s early and middle periods (1903-1940) to theorize the democratic construction, acquisition, and revolutionary implementation of the requirements of justice. In a world where race organizes economic and political power, Basevich shows that philosophers and ordinary people alike can still put their faith in inclusive democratic practices to build a just society.
