The W.E.B. Du Bois Lecture Series ist hosted by American Culture Studies. The aim is to promote intercultural dialogue by inviting scholars* and intellectuals. In open lectures they speak to a broad audience about the crucial aspects and problems of public culture and today's forms of cultural criticism.

The lectures are named in honor of William Edward Burghardt Du Bois (1868 to 1963) an important and influential intellectual, scholar, public figure, and writer of 20th century America. After doing graduate work at Harvard University, he was a doctoral student at Friedrich-Wilhelms-Universität (now Humboldt-Universität) from 1892 to 1894. The first African American ever to receive a Ph.D. from Harvard in 1895, he was subsequently Professor of Economics and History at Atlanta University from 1897 to 1910 and became widely known for his numerous historical and analytical studies of the social, economic, political, and cultural status of black people in the United States.
