Elizabeth Catte


Elizabeth CatteMeet Elizabeth Catte, the public historian who has written the most talked-about book in Appalachian studies this year: What You Are Getting Wrong About Appalachia. Her book is an insider’s frank assessment of America’s recent fascination with Appalachia (especially from “Hillbilly Elegy”) which sees the area as a backwards, white working-class caricature. She has written an essential guide on how to talk about race, class, gender, and the cultural geographies that shape Appalachian lives. She recently published, as a co-editor, 55 Strong: Inside the West Virginia Teachers’ Strike and is completing a new book, Pure America, about the legacy of Virginia’s eugenics movement.
