The History Department is thrilled to report that Tammy Ingram’s publication Dixie Highway: Road Building and the Making of the Modern South is now in production with U.N.C. Press and will appear in the spring 2014 catalog.

Her concluding remarks are instructive and demonstrate the teacher-scholar model we adhere to: “The lesson my Dixie Highway research has taught me is one I carry into the classroom with me every day. ordinary things are interesting if you have enough curiosity to ask questions about them.” -Professor Powers, Chair History Department
