Lecture - Allen Shelton: Where the North Sea touches Alabama

Allen Shelton is an associate professor of sociology. He arrived in Buffalo, New York in 1998 driving a Toyota one-ton pickup with 233,000 miles on the engine. He's sometimes considered a fictocritic. Six years later he sold his farm in Alabama, and his truck was stolen along with a ten foot chain, a pulley, and a tiny plastic World's Greatest Dad trophy glued to the dashboard. In the aftermath he wrote Dreamworlds of Alabama (University of Minnesota Press 2007). The book was seen as an exemplar of nomadic sociology. His new book Where the North Sea Touches Alabama is forthcoming from the University of Chicago Press. His website is http://www.softarcades.com/ and http://version.org/posts.

The writing workshop will begin at 2 pm (2-5) on the same day in Bowland B153
