CALL-FOR-SUBMISSIONS: CrossRoads: A Southern Culture Annual, Volume Four

CrossRoads: A Southern Culture Annual is a publication dedicated to the
interdisciplinary study and artistic appreciation of the South (broadly
defined) and Southern culture. First appearing in Spring 2004 and
published thereafter as an annual book by Mercer University Press,
CrossRoads: A Southern Culture Annual is continuing the editorial
approach of CrossRoads: A Journal of Southern Culture, a semi-legendary
periodical originally published in the early 1990s by a dedicated group
of graduate students affiliated with the University of Mississippi's
Center for the Study of Southern Culture.

The first and second volumes of CrossRoads: A Southern Culture Annual
feature new work by leading scholars and artists. The scholarly works
in those volumes of CrossRoads: A Southern Culture Annual explore such
topics as Southern language, literature, visual art, music, and food,
and elucidate Southern perspectives on religion, politics, race,
ethnicity, gender, and regional identity. Those volumes also contain
compelling creative work from a number of leading writers and visual
artists from the South.

Southern Culture Annual, please contact Mercer University Press via
