Professor Louis Mazzari and I are putting together a panel on "Southern Self-Reflection" for the 2006 SHA in New Orleans. This panel will explore the effect of Progressivism on southern intellectuals and the way this ideology led to various southern "solutions" to uniquely southern problems. Prof. Mazzari's paper explores Arthur Raper's anti-lynching campaign and the conceptualization of race as more of a class issue than a racial one. My paper examines the first few years of the South Atlantic Quarterly and the way in which its contributors sought to create a southern identity based on both black and poor white submission to the elite class. We are seeking a paper (preferably around 1910-1920)that will explore similar themes. This may include topics such as education, race, economy or culture.
Time is ticking away, so the sooner the better! Please send your proposals and a vita to me @ firstname.lastname@example.org.
