"Retextualize W.E.B. Du Bois's 'The Individual and Social Conscience' (1905)"
— by Robert W. Williams
Via Retextualizer we can interact with W.E.B. Du Bois's "The Individual and Social Conscience" (IASC), which was originally untitled when published in the Proceedings of the third annual meeting of the Religious Education Association in February 1905. Du Bois delivered this works as a discussant on a panel called "How Can We Develop in the Individual a Social Conscience?"
On another web page I provide more information on the IASC, its historical context, and my interpretation of it.
Details and notes on the PRIMARY SOURCE used for retextualization are found in Section 3 below.
The Primary Source
Du Bois, William E.B. 1905. "The Individual and Social Conscience" [Originally Untitled]. Pp. 53-55 in Religious Education Association, The Aims of Religious Education. The Proceedings of the Third Annual Convention of the Religious Education Association, Boston, February 12-16, 1905. Chicago: Executive Office of the Religious Education Association.
Sentence 15—the last sentence of "The Individual and Social Conscience"—is rather long. It consists of numerous clauses designated by commas and semicolons, and ends with a slightly altered version of an epigraph from Ralph Waldo Emerson. Because the sentence is the fundamental unit of retextualization, I have not divided Sentence 15 into shorter pieces.
The Proceedings contain other presentations and discussions from the 1905 meeting of the Religious Education Association.
