Descriptions

The Lamar Lecture series, made possible by the bequest of the late Eugenia Dorothy Blount Lamar, began in 1957. The series promotes the permanent preservation of southern culture, history and literature. Given each fall, it is recognized as the most important lecture series on southern history and literature in the United States. Speakers have included nationally and internationally known scholars, such as Cleanth Brooks, James C. Cobb, Trudier Harris, Fred Hobson, Eugene Genovese, and Eric Sundquist. The University of Georgia Press publishes The Lamar Lecture Series ( http://www.ugapress.org/index.php/series/LLS ) (English, Unclassified)
