The 2013 Gilder-Jordan Lecturer in Southern History is Dr. Walter Johnson of Harvard. The lecture will take place on Wednesday, September 18 at 7 p.m. in Nutt Auditorium on the University of Mississippi campus. An important element of the lecture series is the opportunity for students to meet with leading scholars, so Dr. Johnson will spend time with Southern Studies and history graduate students while visiting Oxford. Dr. Johnson’s most recent book is River of Dark Dreams: Slavery and Empire in the Cotton Kingdom, a study of slavery in the Mississippi Valley between the Louisiana Purchase and the Civil War.
