Other highlights from the forthcoming season include the adventures of forensic pathologist Philippe Charlier, the “Indiana Jones of the graveyards,” who unravels historic mysteries such as the death of Richard the Lionheart and explores the very real phenomenon of the zombie in Haitian Vodou; a celebration of Florida’s second-to-none soul music heritage; a bold argument for the failure of Reconstruction; a comprehensive assessment of the 1965 Selma civil rights campaign; an exploration of documentary films about the experiences of Latin American immigrants; a radical study of the medieval poet and musician Guillaume de Machaut; groundbreaking anthologies on American dance in the twentieth century and the new millennium; a monumental synthesis of a half century of research in the Nile River Valley by two highly accomplished anthropologists; and new journals from the University of Florida Press.
