The 2013 Porter Fortune, Jr. History Symposium will take place February 21-23, 2013. The theme will be “European Empires in the American South.”
The Porter L. Fortune, Jr. History Symposium, sponsored by the Center for the Study of Southern Culture and the University of Mississippi Department of History, began as an annual conference on southern history in 1975. In 1983, it was named for Porter L. Fortune, Jr., chancellor emeritus, to honor his contributions to the success of the symposium. Past events have examined topics such as the southern political tradition, childhood, religion, and the role of gender in shaping public power.
