greater inclusion of STEM fields into the work we want to do
15
16
What brought you herepeople are here because they want to be with people who understand the space and the work from a emancipatory orientation
17
how can we do this work while holding
18
hard to find people to challenge your work with a equivalent understanding that you have of DuBois. Finding deep critical engagement with the text with other people doing engagned scholarship.
19
to think about Du Bois not from a deification project but a welcoming to other people coming along with him
20
desire to engagement with activists and making sure they are compensated
21
thinking about scholarship broadly, inclusive of arts, as a way to understand Black thought
22
better engagement with a global dimension in our work and efforts, especially with the intersections of subaltern thought
23
a space for healing, mind body and spirit: Public scholarship as an artistic practice; to think about how Du Bois used to publicize playwrights and that is important – creative scholarship for black public thought
24
how much work do we do on behalf of the university and when does service cross over into exploitation, especially how do white faculty respond to this disproportionate burden
25
26
27
Intellectual Agenda meanings / building a public "trust" want us to own a public voice that can respond to issues live
28
we should have a speakers organization that helps to navigate this important work with us -- insclusive of scholars and activists
29
how do we produce wealth (economic and a broad category of power/influence) outside the academy?
30
We are not teaching Du Bois and people are reading it on their own, so we need to think about syllabi and reading lists that allow for this dialogue
31
creation of a movement within the academy that addresses the disciplines directly; consider orgs like Racial Democracy Crime Justice Network and thei research work
32
do we have translations of du bois for other geographies; Du Bois’ connections with 1940s intellectuals in Latin America, specifically Cuban scholars he was engaged with
33
Let us think about all those who Du Bois stands in for – this is an inclusive intellectual environment
