Register to Speak at SCA Meeting
The Sewanee Civic Association will meet at 6 p.m., Tuesday, Feb. 22, via Zoom. There will be a brief business meeting followed by a presentation from Woody Register, Director of the Roberson Project. Any adult who resides in the area and shares concerns of the community is invited to participate.
The founding Director of the Roberson Project since 2017, Woody Register, C’80, has been teaching courses at Sewanee on 19th- and 20th-century American society and culture, gender, and slavery’s role in the development of American institutions and society for nearly 30 years. As a colleague, collaborator, and friend for more than 20 years, Houston Bryan Roberson and his impact as a teacher, scholar, and citizen continue to inspire and guide Woody’s work. Woody’s involvement with the Roberson project was sparked first by his own research into Sewanee’s particular history in connection with slavery, and was then influenced by the international movement among colleges and universities to study the history and impact of their institutions’ indebtedness to slavery — and slavery’s indebtedness to their institutions.
Woody has been a newspaper reporter and editor in Nashville, St. Louis, and Providence. He has a doctorate in history from Brown University, and presently is the Francis S. Houghteling Professor of American History. He has published extensively on American cultural history, including an essay, “Makers of Sewanee,” in the past fall issue of The Sewanee Review.
