The Haunted South
April 8-11, 2020
Delta Symposium presents work from multidisciplinary approaches including literary criticism, cultural studies, history, anthropology, folklore, ethnomusicology, sociology, speech communication and heritage studies. Although proposals that have direct connections to Arkansas and the Delta are especially welcome, more general proposals that also address the theme within Southern history, culture, and heritage will be considered.
Arkansas Roots Music Festival
As in recent years, the symposium will conclude with the annual Arkansas Roots Music Festival on April 11th, which is supported by KASU-FM 91.9. KASU is the oldest NPR affiliate in Arkansas, and the university's public broadcasting service.
