W.E.B. DuBois: Examining the Legacy of a Sociologist Historian, Through Research and Design

A Discussion with Dr. Cheryl D. Miller

Join us for a discussion with Dr. Cheryl D. Miller, graphic designer, educator and author, as she reveals how the impact of W.E.B. Dubois' legacy scholarship leads to important findings which verify her instincts. More than the designer of his 1900 Paris Exhibition Data Visualization Charts, DuBois' work points to the history of the Black designer in North America. Dr. Miller’s talk will expand our thinking about design history to include more than the Eurocentric Modernist design canonical histories we regard as traditional. 

Open to the UBalt community.
