Heritage and Hate: Old South Words and Symbols at Southern Universities

Stephen Monroe and LaToya Faulk


In this SouthTalk, Stephen Monroe and LaToya Faulk will discuss Monroe’s new book, Heritage and Hate: Old South Words and Symbols at Southern Universities, which traces the ongoing rhetorical power of Old South words and symbols at southern universities.

Stephen Monroe is chair and assistant Professor in the Department of Writing and Rhetoric at the University of Mississippi, where he is an affiliated faculty member in the Center for the Study of Southern Culture, a steering committee member for the Sarah Isom Center for Women and Gender Studies, and director of the Willie Morris Awards for Southern Writing. His book, Heritage and Hate: Old South Words and Symbols at Southern Universities, was published in June as part of the Rhetoric, Culture, and Social Critique series from the University of Alabama Press.

LaToya Faulk has a BA in English literature and an MA in rhetoric and writing from Michigan State University. She teaches in the Department of Writing Rhetoric and is also a MFA fiction student at the University of Mississippi. Her work has been published in ScalawagSouthwest Review, Amherst College’s the Common, and Splinter Magazine’s Think Local series.  

SouthTalks is a series of events (including lectures, performances, film screenings, and panel discussions) that explores the interdisciplinary nature of Southern Studies. This series is free and open to the public, and typically takes place in the Tupelo Room of Barnard Observatory unless otherwise noted. However, as a result of the ongoing health crisis, many events will be virtual, free, and made accessible on the Center’s YouTube channel after each live event.
