This quote serves as a springboard for this special call of the Du Bois Review (DBR) soliciting abstracts for papers that describe novel and exciting research directions for studying how race and ethnicity affect health in the twenty-first century. That is, what are the next big ideas that can potentially unpack how and why race is so strongly associated with physical and mental health?
What are the most promising new directions for the study of racial inequality and health? What are the key unanswered questions that researchers and policy makers should invest in?

Two-page proposals for papers are due January 25, 2010. Two types of papers will be accepted for this special call: (a) state of the discipline presents lead essays that synthetically critique broad areas of research regarding race and health ; and (b) state of the art, is dedicated to observations and analyses of empirical research. Proposals should state a tentative title, the type of paper to be written, listing of authors, contact information, and a synopsis of the paper idea. We will select papers that hold the most promise for advancing the field and that best combine, as a collection of papers, into a synergistic whole appropriate for this special call.
We expect to make our final selection of proposals by February 15, 2010. Final papers will be due July 31, 2010 with publication of the special issue expected for early 2011.
DBR is a blind peer-reviewed journal and publishes only original, previously unpublished whether hard copy or electronic work.
Submitted manuscripts may not be under review for publication elsewhere while under consideration at DBR.
