TVA's Global Career: East Tennessee and the World (Southern Appalachian Studies Series)

Monday, October 23, 2017

Library Sponsored - Open to the Public

  • Monday, October 23,  7 p.m.,  “Southern Appalachian Studies Series: TVA’s Global Career - East Tennessee and the World,”  presented by Tore C. Olsson, Ph. D., UTK.  Today, many define southern Appalachia by its isolation and disconnection from the world. This presentation argues the opposite – that East Tennessee in particular has had a massive global footprint. Olsson will look specifically at the Tennessee Valley Authority, the New Deal-era rural development program, and how various nations sought to imitate its program within their own nations during the Cold War years. This program will be in the Sharon Lawson Room.
