Warren Wilson Professor Jeff Keith interviewed by NPR’s “Tell Me More”

Global studies professor Jeff Keith spoke with NPR’s Audie Cornish about his students’ work at the South Asheville Cemetery on the Tell Me More radio show.

The work at the cemetery was part of Engaging Appalachia, a class Keith and sustainable forestry professor Dave Ellum taught as part of the Appalachian Semester curriculum.

The South Asheville Cemetery project integrated the Triad by weaving interdisciplinary academics, College work crews and service at the cemetery. The mapping feature grew from the College’s GIS and Archeology work crews, and students put in hours and hours of service work at the cemetery and with the South Asheville Cemetery Association.
