CG – 21st Century Reflections on Appalachian Identity with Speaker Dr. Mark Banker

Calhoun-Gordon County Library presents an adult event: 21st Century Reflections on Appalachian Identity with Speaker Dr. Mark Banker on Friday, September 16, 2016 from 10:00am-11:00am

“Writing with the keen eye of a native son who left the area only to returen years later, Banker uses elements of his own autobiography to underscore the ways in which East Tennesseans, particularly ‘successful’ urban dwellers, often distance themselves from an Appalachian identity. This understandable albeit regrettable response, Banker suggests, diminishes and demeans both the individual and region, making stereotypically ‘Appalachian’ conditions self-perpetuating.” – From utpress.org.

Mark T. Banker, author of Appalachians All: East Tennesseans and the Elusive History of an American Region, is a history teacher at Webb School of Knoxville, and resides on the farm where he was raised in nearby Roane County. He earned his PhD at the University of New Mexico and is the author of Presbyterian Missions and Cultural Interaction in the Far Southwest, 1850-1950. His articles have appeared in the Journal of Presbyterian History, Journal of the West, OAH Magazine of History, and Appalachian Journal.
