The Southern Quarterly invites submissions for a special issue devoted to the lower Mississippi River as an icon for the 20th century South. We are looking for scholarly articles, archival documents, and interviews (but no poetry) on the symbolic importance of the river for and in Southern poetry and fiction, film, music, popular culture, and art. Interdisciplinary articles that focus on more than one of these areas are especially welcome. Manuscripts should run between 20-25 pages (double-spaced) and follow the MLA style of documentation.Please query Philip Kolin (Philip.Kolin@usm.edu) with any questions about your submission.
SoQ does not consider multiple submissions or work that has been approved elsewhere. Please follow the SoQ guidelines, which are available online at: www.usm.edu/soq/guidelines.htm. For consideration for this special issue, please submit original manuscripts by November 1, 2014.
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.
