Eighth annual Barbara Methvin Lecture to be delivered on Feb. 10 in Park Hall

The university’s 2020 Barbara Methvin Lecture will be given on Feb. 10 at 4:30 p.m. in Room 265 of Park Hall.

The lecture, “Parade Coming! Segregation and Street Performances in the Photography of Eudora Welty,” will be given by Annette Trefzer, a faculty member in the English department at the University of Mississippi.

An associate professor of English at Ole Miss since 1999, Trefzer teaches American literature and literary theory. Her research centers on the culture and literature of disenfranchised groups including indigenous peoples and women. Her book Disturbing Indians: The Archaeology of Southern Fiction focuses on the roles Native Americans have played in the construction of the South’s cultural landscapes. Her new book project focuses on the Native American South.

The lecture is sponsored by John Wharton Lowe, the Barbara Methvin Distinguished Professor of English in UGA’s Franklin College of Arts and Sciences.
