The Dale Center: The Dale Center’s faculty fellows and graduate students appear in several different media, from the Dale Center Blog, where they write posts highlighting issues in the history of war and society and military history, to their YouTube channel, which houses videos highlighting the work of Dale Center faculty. Browse through their multiple media and have fun exploring a range of topics.

The Educated Guess Podcast: A monthly podcast, produced by WUSM, that explores common scientific questions about our world. The show brings together experts from across disciplines who discuss a wide range of topics, from the origins or life to the origins of us! The Educated Guess is a co-production of the USM School of Biological, Environmental, and Earth Science and School of Communication.
Mississippi Moments Podcast: Mississippi Moments began in early 2005 as a weekly series of radio spots broadcast statewide on Mississippi Public Broadcasting with funding provided by the Mississippi Humanities Council. Each episode features stories gleaned from hours of research, edited for time and clarity and narrated by Mississippi broadcast veteran, Bill Ellison. These stories range in topic and tone, but war stories and the struggle for civil rights receive the most attention. MSMO is not a History series. History frequently comes along for the ride, but Story drives the narrative.
Milton for Mississippi: A project that celebrates the literary achievement of John Milton (1608-1674) and aims to provide Mississippians with access to Milton’s genius. “Milton for Mississippi” is presented by Jameela Lares, Professor of English at Southern Miss and the Charles W. Moorman Distinguished Professor of the Humanities for 2017-19.
Product: A student-run, online literary journal produced annually through the Center for Writers at the Southern Miss. It publishes poetry, fiction, non-fiction, and drama, as well as work of student visual artists. Explore a variety of media that represents the diverse and creative campus voices.
Spotify Playlist: Take us everywhere and add our Southern Miss playlist, featuring popular tunes by the Pride of Mississippi and the USM Wind Ensemble, to your own playlist to play from your devices at home.
