Call for Papers Date:
Study the South, a peer-reviewed, multimedia, open-access journal published by the Center for the Study of Southern Culture at the University of Mississippi, announces a call for papers to advance scholarship on blues music in the American South. The author of the selected paper will be invited to discuss or present a portion of his or her work at the 2015 Blues Today! Symposium on the campus of the University of Mississippi. The symposium will concentrate on North Mississippi Hill Country blues.
Study the South will have first publication rights for the article—planned for publication on April 8, 2015, the commencement of the 2015 Blues Today! Symposium. Copyright will revert to the author six weeks after date of publication. The Center for the Study of Southern Culture and Study the South will retain, however, non-exclusive rights to publication.
