Posted by: Lorraine Cashman
Southern Cultures, the award-winning quarterly from UNC's Center for the Study of the American South, strongly encourages submissions from scholars and other thoughtful writers from around the world for our special issue devoted entirely to "Southern Waters." The editors will be accepting submissions for this special issue now through May 15, 2013.
The editors are interested in reflections on all aspects of Southern waters including music, navigation and mapping, disasters (from drought to flood), property (riparian rights to ownership), faith and cosmology, literature and art, drink, resource and energy (from hydroelectric to fracking), and more. Submissions on water topics such as Southern tears, beach music, bourbon and branch, river baptisms, drowning, resorts, borders, swamps, agriculture and aquaculture, fishing, etc. are all encouraged.
During the past year, over 70,000 people have read Southern Cultures in print, accessed its content online, and downloaded its eBooks--including students and scholars in 66 countries.
