The public is invited to a Southern Environmental History symposium on March 9 from 8:30 a.m.-noon at the Caroline Marshall Draughon Center for the Arts and Humanities at Pebble Hill, 101 S. Delbardeleden St. The symposium is free and open to the public.

The symposium is co-sponsored by the Caroline Marshall Draughon Center for the Arts and Humanities in the College of Liberal Arts at Auburn University and will be centered on a special issue on The Alabama Review in April.

The symposium offers a window into a rapidly growing number of studies that have called attention to the historical intersections of nature and culture in the South and explores the state’s environmental history. 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 Daniel F. Breeden.
