Center for Appalachian Studies presents at conference

UVa-Wise News - Tue, 04/07/2015 - 9:24am

The newly-formed UVa.-Wise Center for Appalachian Studies was represented for the first time at the annual Appalachian Studies Association Conference, held March 27-29, 2015 at East Tennessee State University.

UVa-Wise students in attendance were: Evan Couch, Corbin Hayslett, Tessa McCoy-Hall (former CAS intern), Dalena Adams, and Alana Johnson. They were accompanied by CAS intern Bill Wireman, and founding directors Brian McKnight, Amy Clark, and David Rouse.

UVa-Wise students Alana Johnson and Dalena Adams presented their qualitative study on “The Gendered Language of Gravestones: A Comparative Study of Central and Northern Appalachian Cemeteries” in a poster session on March 27. This study examined the gravestones of two public cemeteries in a western Pennsylvania township and in a far southwest Virginia town, and found gendered rhetorical patterns in how men and women have been represented in death from the late 19th century to present day. The study also suggests that these patterns can be linked to sociocultural shifts in Appalachia in the past century, and suggests that its cemeteries also function as sites of rhetorical power for the living.

CAS Co-Director Amy Clark participated in a roundtable discussion of Appalachian Studies Programs and Centers.

Clark was also awarded the Stephen L. Fisher Award for Excellence in Teaching by the ASA, which “recognizes an individual dedicated to intellectual rigor and pedagogical integrity in constructing and delivering inclusive knowledge about Appalachia and its people.” She was presented a plaque at the ASA awards banquet by Theresa Burriss, director of Radford University’s Appalachian Regional and Rural Studies Center.
