The Lynne and Henry Turley Memphis Center at Rhodes College explores the human experience of Memphis and the Mid-South in both past and present. Through classes, programs, and partnerships, it connects Rhodes’s academic program with many unique opportunities for engagement and learning in the Memphis area. The center supports innovative scholarship and teaching, stimulates student research and creative activity, and sustains interdisciplinary collaboration across the college and in the Memphis community. We support students in a variety of experiential learning opportunities, and we collect archival material that highlights our region’s rich literary, musical, archaeological and civil rights traditions. From the arts to the archives, from the Civil War to the Civil Rights Movement and beyond, the Turley Memphis Center seeks to enrich the Rhodes College experience and transform our community. This collection also houses materials created by the Memphis Center before the name change in spring 2018 to the Lynne & Henry Turley Memphis Center. Due to the interdisciplinary nature of the Memphis Center, materials are spread throughout this repository. Click here for more projects.
