Welcome to Swerve South! Join your hosts, Jaime Harker and Theresa Starkey, director and co-director of the Sarah Isom Center for Women and Gender Studies at the University of Mississippi as they introduce their new adventure in podcasting. Swerve South is a non-mainstream look at the world through the lens of the rebellious, unexpected, radical space of the Deep South. In this introductory episode, your hosts discuss their intentions for the podcast: to veer from the norm and discuss all things feminism, multicultural, pop culture and queer. Deviate from the doldrums and take a breather with us each week for lively discussions and interviews from visitors to the university as we explore the intersections we all inhabit.
