March 20: The Modern South
April 3: The South Today
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.
