A Survey of Southern Culture: The South Today with Taylor Hagood, Ph.D.
Recorded April 3, 2023
Few parts of the United States exhibit and elicit such conflicting politics, images, emotions, hopes, and fears as the South. It can seem at once the essence of home, yet purely exotic, a place of terror and a place of laughter, a generator of culture and the most backward
part of the nation. Florida Atlantic University Professor Taylor Hagood — internationally-renowned scholar of Southern literature and culture — will delve into the complexities of the South via a tapestry of history, geography, literature, music, film, art, philosophy, and politics, showing how the South has played a major role in defining the country from its beginnings
to the present day.
