Atlantic Environments and the American South


The Atlantic Environments and the American South conference held at Rice exceeded the high expectations I had after seeing the program. There wasn’t a dull panel, our hosts were delightful, but I must admit the fantastic keynotes by Drs. Jeffery Bolster and Paul Sutter stood out.

My own contribution, modest in comparison, was on a panel tasked with “Expanding the Atlantic” and I gave a talk entitled “Clothing King Cotton: Kentucky Hemp in the Atlantic World.” The word cloud below gives a fair idea of the themes.
