Southern Cultures 27

About

Southern Cultures is an academic journal about the history and cultures of the U.S. South, published by UNC Press with the Center for the Study of the American South for readers in the South and beyond. Southern Cultures welcomes thoughtful submissions year-round on all things southern—from essays and articles to poetry, memoir, photo essays, features, and interviews & oral histories. We are not interested in work that venerates an old (or new) white South, promotes a southern nation, or pines for the days of the Confederacy. The plural “cultures” in our name is intentional and is meant to recognize a region of many peoples, histories, memories, and interpretations.
