Academic talk title of the week — Are you a man or a mollusk?:

We are pleased to announce a talk sponsored by the Department of English: William Stott will give a talk titled “Of Bivalves and Men: The Eastern Oyster as Fact and Symbol,” tomorrow (Wed., Jan. 31) at 1:00 pm in Donovan Lounge in Greenlaw Hall. Dr. Stott will discuss his research on the Carolina coast.

Pictures on the radio — Chapel Hill News’ Mark Schultz reports that WCHL’s Ron Stutts reports that Ron’s wife reports that she saw and photographed a white deer in their backyard.

The NandO blog, Orange Chat, features a picture of a white deer — not the picture that Ron reported tho.
