Auburn Author

The Moon and the Stars:  New and Collected Stories

Marian Carcache, Auburn University Department of English

Reading and Booking Signing

Date and Time:  Thursday, March 20 at 3 p.m.

Location:  Special Collections and Archives, Ground Floor, Ralph Brown Draughon Library

"A natural born storyteller, Carcache is the Eudora Welty of the Chattahoochee Valley, or at least the part along U.S. 431 south of Phenix City, where the sheriff once suggested that there was something in the water that caused so much craziness to go on all the time.  Anyone who delights in good Southern writing will go for these stories the way Sammy Dunn goes for the scrambled eggs and sausage at the Courtesy Grille" - Jim Buford, fiction writer and essayist.

Sponsored by:  Auburn University Libraries, the Auburn University Department of English, and the Auburn University Bookstore.

Korean General Social Survey, 2010

The Korean General Social Survey (KGSS) is the South Korean version of the General Social Survey (GSS), closely replicating the original GSS of the National Opinion Research Center at the University of Chicago. Each round of the KGSS typically includes the topical module surveys of the International Social Survey Programme (ISSP), and/or the East Asian Social Survey (EASS), an international survey network of four GSS-type surveys from countries in East Asia (including China, Japan, Taiwan, and South Korea). Respondents were asked about their trust of people and institutions, government performance, health behaviors, chronic conditions, obstacles to obtaining health care, and physical pain. Additional questions were asked regarding family support, local issues, attitudes toward aging, addictive behaviors, environmental issues, and international migration. Demographic information includes age, sex, education level, household income, employment status, religious preference, political party affiliation, and political philosophy.

This dataset is available through the ICPSR (Inter-University Consortium for Political and Social Research) database which provides search and browsing access to abstracts and data sets in the world's largest archive of computerized social science data.
