James Leloudis’s chief interest is the history of the modern South, with emphases on labor, education, race, poverty, and reform. Leloudis and Robert Korstad of Duke University are currently working on a research and civic engagement project on “The Moral Challenge of Poverty and the Ethics of Service.” That work is part of a collaborative initiative on the Long Civil Rights Movement, funded by the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation and UNC–Chapel Hill. Partners include the University of North Carolina Press, the UNC–Chapel Hill University Library, the Center for Civil Rights of the UNC–Chapel Hill School of Law, and the Southern Oral History Program at the UNC–Chapel Hill Center for the Study of the American South.
