Southern Environmental History Symposium

The public is invited to a Southern Environmental History Symposium on Thursday, March 9 from 8:30 a.m. to noon at the Caroline Marshall Draughon Center for the Arts & Humanities at Pebble Hill. 

Centered on a special issue of the Alabama Review to be published in April that explores the state’s environmental history, the symposium offers a window into a rapidly growing number of studies that has called attention to the historical intersections of nature and culture in the South. Speakers include Jack Davis, University of Florida; Jason Hauser, Mississippi State; Erin Mauldin, Samford University; Ellen Spears, University of Alabama; and Nick Timmerman, Mississippi State.

The symposium is a program of  2017 Breeden Eminent Scholar Mark Hersey. The Daniel F. Breeden Eminent Scholar Chair was established in 1989 to provide support for both the academic and the outreach missions of the College of Liberal Arts. The chair is supported by an endowment from Dr. Daniel F. Breeden.

The Southern Environmental History Symposium is co-sponsored by the Caroline Marshall Draughon Center for the Arts & Humanities in the College of Liberal Arts at Auburn University and The Alabama Review. Pebble Hill is located at 101 S. Debardeleben Street, Auburn.
