Special Issue Call for Papers:
The Southern Quarterly has extended the submission deadline for a special issue celebrating the 50th anniversary of the Freedom Summer Project and the passage of the Civil Rights Act. We are looking for interdisciplinary scholarly articles, interviews, art, unpublished archival materials, photo essays, and poems. Publication is planned for Fall 2014.
In particular, we invite submissions in the following areas:
Historical Reflection at 50: Articles reflecting on the Freedom Summer Project and the Civil Rights act and the influence of these watershed events in today’s society. Submissions that make use of primary source documents are encouraged.
Literature of the Movement: Articles that focus on how Freedom Summer shaped the literary imagination in general, how poets and writers represented the events of Freedom Summer in particular works, or how the events of the Freedom Summer influenced civil rights-era literature and cultural production. Scholarly articles of 7,500-9,000 words are encouraged, though we are also open to unpublished archival materials and poems related to the topic. Direct any inquiries to section editor Brian Norman (firstname.lastname@example.org).
Teaching Freedom Summer:Submissions that make use of primary source documents, videos, music, or other media are encouraged.
SoQ does not consider multiple submissions or work that has been approved elsewhere. For consideration for this special issue, please submit original manuscripts by June 15, 2014, following the SoQ guidelines, which are available online at: www.usm.edu/soq/guidelines.htm.
The Southern Quarterly is an internationally-known scholarly journal devoted to the interdisciplinary study of Southern arts and culture. For SoQ, "the arts" is defined broadly, and includes painting, sculpture, music, dance, poetry, photography, and popular culture. We also publish studies of Southern culture from such disciplines as literature, folklore, anthropology, and history. "The South" is defined as the region south of the Mason Dixon Line, including the Caribbean and Latin America. Regular features include reviews of books and films, periodic reviews of exhibitions and performances, as well as interviews with writers and artists.
