Description:

Founded in 1977, the Appalachian Center is "designed specifically to link the resources of the University with communities previously underserved by the state's largest land-grant institution." To publicize and promote their activities and research, the Center developed this Web site that serves as a way to disseminate information about their various programs, both within the University of Kentucky and around the Appalachian region. The site contains material on their recent research projects (including a report on "The Pedagogy of Place"), the teaching of Appalachia-related subjects at the University Of Kentucky, and a variety of excellent thematic maps relating the economic state of Kentucky's different counties. There are also Appalachian-themed discussion boards and an event calendar for general browsing. In addition, there is a search engine that allows for a more detailed inquiry into the overall contents of the entire site. This is a good starting place for beginning any number of investigations into an area of the United States that is often misunderstood and, at times, completely overlooked.
