The Center’s work includes Southern Cultures, an award-winning peer-reviewed quarterly, and the Southern Oral History Program, a nationally-recognized leader in oral history research, collection, and teaching. We also serve as hubs for Critical Ethnic Studies and the new Southern Futures initiative.
As part of this mission, we offer critical conversations on topics in the diverse and changing south via our Hutchins, Chandler, and Charleston lecture series and allow a platform for artists via Art @ the Center, and many other live events. In addition to our programming, we also fund student and faculty research through grants and fellowships across many disciplines.
