Southern Quarterly special issue on "Freedom Summer"
call for papers for section on "Literature of the Movement"
The Southern Quarterly is planning a special issue celebrating the 50th anniversary of the Freedom Summer Project and the passage of the Civil Rights Act. We invite submissions for a section devoted to "Literature of the Movement." Questions might include, how does Freedom Summer shape the literary imagination in general or how have poets and writers represented the events of Freedom Summer in particular works? How did the events of the Freedom Summer influence civil rights-era literature and cultural production?
