After 35 years as a member of the University of Mississippi faculty, including 11 years as director of the Center for the Study of Southern Culture, history and Southern Studies professor Dr. Ted Ownby is preparing to retire at the end of June.
Former students, colleagues, Center supporters, and community members are invited to help us celebrate Ted on Sunday, June 11. He will give a talk about his latest work at 3 p.m. in the Barnard Observatory Tupelo Room, followed by a picnic on the lawn at 4 p.m., and music by Southern Studies alums as part of the Yoknapatawpha Arts Council‘s Summer Sunset Series in the Grove at 6 p.m. All events are free and open to the public.
