Our partners at UM include the Center for the Study of Southern Culture, the Departments of History and Sociology, and the Sarah Isom Center for Women’s and Gender Studies. Our faculty partners Dr. Jessie Wilkerson, Dr. Amy McDowell, and Dr. Jaime Harker are leading the team that will grow the archival collections and oral histories of Mississippi.
