Course of the day – Appalachian Literature

A new literature course offered at Northeast State this fall studies the rich history of Southern Appalachia.

The three-credit-hour course Appalachian Literature (ENGL 2150 I70, #81648) is being taught online for the first time this semester.  Students will examine the literature, music, and films of the Appalachian people.

“Appalachia is a place, a people, an idea, a culture,” said Louise Dickson, course instructor and assistant professor of English at Northeast State.  “The Appalachian story is rich, exciting, and compelling.”

This is the first time Appalachian Lit has been offered as an online course.  The course meets four times during the semester at 6 p.m. on Thursday nights.

All classroom meetings will be held in H153 of the Locke Humanities Building on the main campus at Blountville, adjacent to Tri-Cities Regional Airport.

This is an elective course and does not meet the General Education Core requirement for literature. The course does meet the requirements as an elective.  For more information, contact 323.0257 or  To register go to and click MyNortheast.
