Southern Cultures, the award-winning quarterly from UNC's Center for the Study of the American South, encourages submissions from scholars and other thoughtful writers from around the world for our special issue devoted entirely to "Southern Waters." We will be accepting submissions of polished drafts for this special issue through June 30, 2013.
We are interested in reflections on all aspects of water, including music, navigation and mapping, disasters (from drought to flood), property (riparian rights to ownership), faith and cosmology, literature and art, drink, resource and energy (from hydroelectric to fracking), and more. Submissions on water topics such as Southern tears, beach music, bourbon and branch, river baptisms, drowning, resorts, borders, swamps, agriculture and aquaculture, fishing, etc. are all encouraged.
During the past year, over 70,000 people have read Southern Cultures in print, accessed our content online, and downloaded our eBooks--including students and scholars in 66 countries.
