Medicine, Health and Society professor edits ‘Mississippi Encyclopedia’by Jim Patterson | Jun. 26, 2017, 7:46 AM
Lindsey is associate editor of the encyclopedia, which features contributions from 600 scholars on 30 subject areas ranging from civil rights to sports to visual arts. The Mississippi Encyclopedia was published in May by the University Press of Mississippi.
Lindsey spent much of June in residence at the Virginia Center for the Creative Arts, where he gave a reading and talk about his book We Come to Our Senses, which is a short story collection that touches on the cultural components of war, the role of the body in fiction about war, and the benefits of art therapy for many veterans.
Lindsey served in the Army during Operation Desert Storm in 1991.
