We are seeking articles for an anthology on family life in the Old South, roughly framed as 1780s-1850s. We are particularly interested in a cross-cultural approach, so papers on ethnic minorities, the poor, and urban dwellers are welcomed alongside studies of the white farming and planter classes. Potential topics include childhood, sex, domestic roles, multi-generational relations, birthing, death, the family as an economic unit, etc. Please express interest by Jan. 1, 2006.
