George C. Wallace State Community College (Dothan, AL 36303-0943)
Linda Smith York (Project Director: April 2005 to September 2007)
Alabama Storytellers and Myths: A Legacy of Lore

A series of interdisciplinary faculty workshops on the "mythology" of the South and the role of Alabama writers in contributing to such a mythology.

Wallace Community College proposes a series of faculty workshops to study the influence and impact of Alabama myths and stories on the curricula at the College. The primary goal of the workshops is to enrich the participants’ understanding of the wisdom and power found in myths and stories so that they will draw from Alabama’s rich sources of lore to teach their students, to reinvent their classes relevant to the lives and times of their students, to reach out to their colleagues, and to remind themselves of their own unique stories.
