Call for Submissions
Proposals due January 29, 2010
Migration, Mobility, Exchange, and the U.S. South
Southern Spaces (www.southernspaces.org), an online academic journal hosted by Emory Libraries, invites proposals for essays, photo essays, original documentaries and multimedia projects about migration, mobility, and exchange in the regional and global reaches of the U.S. South. We encourage submissions that combine innovative scholarship and analysis with ideas for digital media elements such as images, maps, audio, or video.
For this series, Southern Spaces will publish multimedia projects that explore migration, mobility, and exchange, particularly through audio, film, essay, art, photography, and other media. Original pieces might examine how the movements of individuals, populations, goods or ideas shape dynamic spaces, cultures, and identities within or in circulation with the U.S. South. Areas of focus could include migration, population displacement, transnationalism, globalization, geography, histories and legacies of coerced labor, travel and tourism, trade and industry, military service, language, sports and recreation, education, health care, epidemiology, foodways, political activism, environmental issues, popular culture, or the roles of emerging media, online social networks, and digital technologies. Pieces may focus on cultures, particular persons, places, industries or events, or, they may compare the treatment of ideas or images across several works, genres, or decades. To engage with space and place, projects might examine or compare geographically specific sites or imagined geographies related to the U.S. South.
