Columbus State University has announced the selection of Dr. Courtney George as Interim Director of the Carson McCullers Center, to replace Cathy Fussell, who is retiring. A native of Greenville, South Carolina, Dr. George completed her undergraduate studies at the University of Georgia and her doctoral studies at Louisiana State University where her areas of focus included Southern literature and culture, women's and gender studies, American music history and culture, and race and class in American culture. Dr. George has published a number of articles on these subjects.
You can read more about Dr. George on the McCullers Center website.
In the meantime -- Welcome, Courtney!
