The constructed nostalgia for the Old South

Karen Cox, associate professor of history at UNC Charlotte, will speak about her recent book, “Dreaming of Dixie,” at 6 p.m. Thursday, Sept. 22, in the School of Education Building, Room 222. She makes the case that the chief purveyors of constructed nostalgia for the Old South were outsiders of the region – and examines how Southerners themselves embraced the imaginary romance of the region’s past. Cox is an alumna of UNCG, where she received her bachelor’s and master’s degrees. Full story at UNCG News.
