College of Charleston professor to discuss link between Depression-era Southern music and labor strikes

William Danaher, assistant professor of sociology at the College of Charleston, will give a talk entitled "A Common Thread: The Rise of Radio, Music, and Southern Textile Strikes, 1929-1934" on Thursday, April 3 at 7 p.m. in Coastal Carolina University's Wall Auditorium. The event is free and open to the public.

Danaher's talk will focus on the relation between folk music, the new mass medium of radio, and the labor unrest that swept through the South's textile industry during the Great Depression.

Danaher's research interests include labor, migration and the sociology of music. He earned a Ph.D. from North Carolina State University.

The event is sponsored by Coastal's chapter of Alpha Kappa Delta, the international sociology honor society.
