Where does the idea of "Dixie" come from? This lecture, by Coleman Hutchison, will provide an answer that question. Please join us on Wednesday, April 18, at 4:30, in Park Hall 265, as Professor Hutchison talks about "'Dixie' and the Appropriation of Cultures." Coleman Hutchison is an Associate Professor of English at the University of Texas-Austin. He is the author of the first literary history of the Civil War South, Apples and Ashes: Literature, Nationalism, and the Confederate States of America, the co-author of a guide for students called Writing About American Literature, and the editor of A History of American Civil War Literature. He is currently writing a popular biography of Dixie, which tells the story of how a song gave the South a nickname, and how that nickname has shaped the South's cultural identity.
