The Thing about Florida 04/23/2021

The Thing about Florida

Congratulations to Tyler Gillespie on the release of his new book, The Thing About Florida: Exploring a Misunderstood State!
The memes. “Because Florida” jokes. “Florida Man” stories. Tyler Gillespie was once embarrassed to call Florida home, concocting fantasies he’d been born somewhere else. In The Thing about Florida, Gillespie faces his Florida denial and takes readers on an exuberant search for the state behind the caricatures, cutting through the media storm with curiosity and humor.
Gillespie’s journey leads him into unexpected places such as halfway houses, gator pits, rattlesnake rooms, and clothing-optional campgrounds, where he meets eclectic and unconventional Floridians. He interviews storm chasers, Civil War reenactors, cattle ranchers, drag queens, python hunters, and pet smugglers. His conversations delve into serious issues such as addiction, Florida’s racist past, and care options for the state’s LGBTQ senior citizens (Excerpt from the overview).
If you want to support our colleague and read his fascinating work, check out the link below:

Dante and American Popular Culture: a virtual conversation


2021 marks 700 years since the death of medieval Italian poet Dante Alighieri and has been declared the year of Dante in Italy. While Dante has been celebrated around the world, he has been particularly influential in the popular culture of the United States. In this virtual conversation, we will explore his influence in visual culture, literature, and other aspects of American popular culture.

Elizabeth Coggeshall (Florida State) will discuss her research on Dante in popular culture and her website Dante Today: Citings and Sightings of Dante’s Works in Contemporary Culture (with Arielle Saiber, Bowdoin College).

Dennis Looney (Modern Language Association) will address the African American reception of Dante that he has detailed in Freedom Readers: The African American Reception of Dante Alighieri and the Divine Comedy. Moderated by Cosetta Gaudenzi (World Languages and Literatures).
