This panel invites papers that examine depictions of the U. S. South and southerners in contemporary film. We are especially interested in essays that address the conference's theme "Cultures, Contexts, Images, and Texts: Making Meaning in Print, Digital, and Networked Worlds" in terms of the ways films portray violence in (and of) the U. S. South.

Please e-mail abstracts (250 to 500 words) to Amy K. King at akking at olemiss.edu by 1 June 2013.
