Overview

Intentionally plural, Southern Cultures, the journal of the Center for the Study of the American South at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, was founded in 1993 to present all sides of the American South, from sorority sisters to Pocahontas, from kudzu to the blues. This volume collects 27 essays from the journal's first 15 years, bringing together some of the most memorable and engaging essays as well as some of those most requested for use in courses. Contributors include C. Vann Woodward, Drew Gilpin Faust, Charles Reagan Wilson, Catherine Bishir, John Shelton Reed, and Tim Tyson.
