This special session at the 2009 South Atlantic Modern Language Association
invites papers on any aspect of southerners as represented in contemporary
film. We are especially interested in essays that address the
transnational turn in southern film, as well as issues of authenticity,
mythology and folklore in southern film. Other topics might include (but
are not limited to) the southern documentary impulse, expressions of race,
class and sexuality in contemporary southern film, adaptation and
re-imaginings of southern literature, and new southern studies and southern
cinema. We welcome submissions considering independent or popular films.
By April 1, 2009, please send 250-word abstracts, institutional
affiliations, and contact information via email to James Crank,
Northwestern State University, at

 From the Literary Calls for Papers Mailing List
