Our parent organization, the Center for the Study of Southern Culture at the University of Mississippi, inspired the SFA.
Many of the SFA's employees got their educations at the Center. Barnard Observatory, the Center's HQ, is our home, too. (An architectural rendering of the building is above. See the middle tower? That's where SFA staff works.)
We know our audience. You're hip to our Twitter feed, and you follow us on Facebook, Flickr, and Broadcastr. But we're betting many of you might not follow the work of the Center closely.
Becca Walton, the newly hired associate director of the Center, is here to help you out. She maintains a Tumblr site where she posts recently completed student and faculty work. It's worthy of your attention.
Up top right now is a film, produced by Center graduate student Camilla Aiken. Called "We Didn't Get Famous," it documents the Southern independent music scene of the 1980s.
