The Dale Center is happy to announce the schedule for this year's upcoming Richard McCarthy Lecture Series, which is entitled "Pivot to Asia." We will have full details in early August, but if you want to see the preliminary schedule to be able to save the dates (in August and September), check out the McCarthy Lecture Series webpage.
The Mississippi Humanities Council and the History Department's Dale Center for the Study of War and Society will be sponsoring several performances of “The Telling Project,” an innovative program in which a playwright interviews a group of military veterans in a particular community, turns their stories into a theatrical script, and then a director works with the veterans to perform their own stories. John Warrick and the Theater Department at USM have been working with Telling Project Creator Jonathan Wei and the Dale Center to recruit veterans. USM Hattiesburg will be hosting the first performance and a reception on November 11th. On November 12th, the production moves to Pearl River Community College in Poplarville for one performance. Then it’s set to go to USM's campus in Long Beach for two performances on Friday, Nov. 13 and Saturday, Nov. 14th. The production will then return to Hattiesburg for preformances on November 21st and 22nd. All of the preformances will start at 7:30pm. We hope to see you there!
