Joyner to speak in Cultural Luncheon series

Charles Joyner, Burroughs Distinguished Professor of Southern History and Culture at Coastal Carolina University, will share his expertise in folklore and folklife during a luncheon on Tuesday, Nov. 13 from noon to 2 p.m. at the Myrtle Beach Elks BPOE No. 1771. The fee for the lunch and presentation is $17. The event is sponsored by Coastal's School of Continuing Studies.

During his presentation titled "The Shared Traditions of Southern Culture," Joyner will share what he has learned from four decades of studying folk culture in the Appalachians, the Ozarks, South Carolina, Georgia's Sea Islands and the Mississippi Delta.

Joyner earned a Ph.D. in history from the University of South Carolina and a Ph.D. in folklore and folklife from the University of Pennsylvania. He has been awarded an honorary doctorate from Presbyterian College, where he earned his undergraduate degree.

Joyner is the author of Down by the Riverside (1984), a chronicle of the rice plantations of the Waccamaw River, which won the National University Press Book Award. His latest book, Shared Traditions, is a collection of essays which illustrate how shared African and European traditions have shaped the American South.
