In this live discussion at noon on Sept. 30, Annemarie Anderson and Simone Delerme discuss Delerme’s recently published book, "Latino Orlando: Suburban Transformation and Racial Conflict," and her current work in Memphis. A live Q&A with viewers follows the conversation.
In her prerecorded SouthTalk, Delerme discusses the findings from her new book, which documents the ways that southern places are being transformed by an influx of Latino migrants. She will be drawing comparisons to her current research in Memphis, which examines how newcomers challenge the South’s historic black-white racial binary and are incorporated into the social, political, and economic life of communities that were nontraditional destinations of migration. Delerme’s prerecorded talk will be available on the Center’s website after Sept. 15.
Simone Delerme joined the University of Mississippi’s Department of Sociology and
Anthropology and the Center for the Study of Southern Culture in the fall of 2013. She
specializes in migration to the US South, with interests in race relations, integration and incorporation, community development, and social class inequalities.

Annemarie Anderson conducts oral history work throughout the South as the Southern Foodways Alliance oral historian.

SouthTalks is a series of events (including lectures, performances, film screenings, and panel discussions) that explores the interdisciplinary nature of Southern Studies. As a result of the current health crisis, all events will be virtual, free, and accessible on the Center’s YouTube channel. Visit southernstudies.olemiss.edu for up-to-date information about all Center events. Registration will be required for all events at https://bit.ly/2Evgyhy.
