CrossRoads first appeared in 2004 and has been published thereafter as
an annual book by Mercer University Press. The first, second, and third
volumes of CrossRoads: A Southern Culture Annual-all currently in
print-feature compelling new work by a diverse range of scholars and
artists. The scholarly essays in those volumes of CrossRoads explore
such topics as Southern language, literature, 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 leading and emerging writers and visual artists from
the South. =20
