Introducing ‘Southern Futures’

The College of Arts & Sciences and the Southern Futures initiative announced the launch of Southern Futures, a podcast to reimagine the American South.

The six-episode series, airing weekly, will bring together UNC-Chapel Hill experts and other scholars in the humanities and different fields for authentic and accessible conversations about the diverse and changing region of the South.

“Questions about the South of today and of tomorrow are important to the University and the communities we serve,’’ said College Dean Terry Rhodes. “This engaging podcast tackles those questions with candid conversations.”

The first episode, “The Push and Pull of the South” is available now, and it features Tyree Daye, teaching assistant professor and poet in the department of English and comparative literature. The conversation with Daye reveals his fascination with the poetry of ordinary life, black family heritage and memory.
