Nunn's Recent Publication

We are glad to announce Erich Nunn co-authored along with William C. Palmer have published their essay, “Songs of the South: Southern Music” in The Routledge History of American South. It is published by Routledge (2018). The Routledge History of the American South looks at the major themes that have developed in the interdisciplinary field of Southern Studies. With fifteen original essays from experts in their respective fields, the handbook addresses such diverse topics as southern linguistics, music (secular and non-secular), gender, food, and history and memory. The chapters present focused historiographical analyses that, taken together, offer a clear sense of the evolution and contours of Southern Studies. This volume is valuable both as a dynamic introduction to Southern Studies and as an entry point into more recent research for those already familiar with the subfield. Dr. Nunn is Associate Professor of American Studies, the U.S. South, Cultural Studies, and Critical Theory in the Department of English.  William C. Palmer is an Auburn University Alumnus; he graduated with a Masters of Art degree in spring 2016.  Congratulations, Erich and William!
