Submissions for the 2015 special issue should relate photography to any other aspect of culture in the South, with both terms broadly defined as in the new southern studies. Subject areas might involve considerations of photography and the other visual and performing arts in the South, photography and southern literature, as well as photography in relation to the geography, history, sociology, and anthropology of the region. Specific submissions could consider individual photographers in the South, particular photographs of southern subjects, vernacular and documentary photography, photos and popular culture in the South, the use of real and fictive photographs in southern poetry and fiction, as well as the photography of landscape and townscape, politics and conflict, or race and class in the South from the Civil War to the present. Submissions relating to these themes of the special issue may include scholarly essays of about 5,000 words plus documentation, reviews of pertinent publications, unpublished interviews with relevant figures, related archival materials, portfolios of southern photographs, and original poetry employing photographic tropes.
SoQ does not consider multiple submissions or work that has been approved elsewhere. All submissions must arrive before January 1, 2015, and should follow 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.
