Southern University class visits Southern Review Exhibition

SUBRvisit_Hill_LSUOn January 22, members of an American Literature class from Southern University-Baton Rouge toured our exhibition, “Advancing Scholarship and Learning for 80 Years: LSU Press and The Southern Review.” Dr. Mary Carruth and her students are currently discussing the Agrarian Poets and contemporary poet Natasha Trethewey.

The exhibition covers the history of LSU Press and The Southern Review; an overview of what is arguably LSU Press’s most famous book, A Confederacy of Dunces; a publication case-study and human interest story profiling Brokenburn: The Journal of Kate Stone, based on an original antebellum diary among Special Collections’ holdings; decades of published works by well-known scholars and writers on a variety of topics including history, LSU, art, anthropology, geography, political science, literature, poetry and music, many of which are based on the holdings of Special Collections. The exhibition runs through January 30, 2016.
