These shifts include a decentering of the Southern renascence and a heightened interest in earlier texts; in coastal, middle, and upper Souths; in previously overlooked intercultural relationships and tensions; in new ways of thinking about race and racism; in still-nascent understandings of class and classism; and in texts that illuminate "southern" without themselves being "southern."

Fiction narratives, films, documentaries and TV series dealing with Muslim issues have increased notably since the events of 9/11, most of them with reference to Islamist terrorism. Whether triggered by 9/11 attacks or not, Islamic characters in literature and film often embody the problematic role of the 'Other' and are usually forced into a stereotype designed from a Western biased perspective as an epitome of fundamentalism and hatred versus the civilization and modernity represented by white, wealthy westerners.
