The Department of English and Philosophy at Arkansas State University announces the seventeenth annual Delta Symposium on 6-9 April 2011 on the theme: "The Delta in Print, Image, and Sound." Symposium participants addressing this theme will explore ways in which the representation of the region’s history and culture is connected to wider elements of mass media as well as more individualized forms of mediated expression.

The symposium hosts scholars and students of the humanities and social sciences, and features multidisciplinary presentations on topics ranging from blues and other forms of music associated with the Delta to historical and contemporary issues relevant to the region. The event offers a variety of presentations, including panels, musical and theatrical performances, keynote speakers, and readings/signings by prominent authors and poets.

This year’s program includes filmmaker Kevin Willmott of the University of Kansas, Nick Spitzer, who hosts American Public Media’s "American Routes," and Terry "Harmonica" Bean, Daddy Mack Blues Band, Reb Russell, and Sonny Burgess and the Pacers.
