Call for Chapters for Edited Volume:  The American South in Ten Recipes 

Edited by Christopher L. Ballengee

The Southern United States is home to many diverse communities, some historically linked to the legacies of colonization and slavery and others emerging more recently thanks to migration from other parts of the country and from abroad. The essays collected in this volume use food as an entryway to understanding the individuality and interconnectedness of these communities. Each chapter will focus on a single recipe as emblematic of a particular culture, region, or tradition such that the collection of essays comes to characterize the dynamic histories, cultures, and innovations of the American South.

A Call Contribution on Book Chapters

To be published by Palgrave Macmillan in December 2023

In 2015, the United Nations approved the 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), which came to give continuity to the process of the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs). The SDGs cover all possible social, economic and natural aspects, both in a global and local space. It is a complex process of political and economic discussion, with different views, which must be addressed from all areas of society (UN, 2022).

In recent years, print culture scholars have injected unprecedented focus on print production and circulation in Black, working-class, indigenous, and Latinx reading communities in the U.S. Once a field with a reputation for patrician pursuits, book history has expanded to include previously ignored communities and print forms such as newspapers and popular magazines. However, studies of anticapitalist and antiracist print cultures have tended to focus on urban, northeastern publishing capitals such as New York and Boston at the expense of literary scenes from the Great Lakes to the Great Plains.

The field of popular culture studies is wide open and has drawn a lot of academic attention for several years now. Popular culture and gender interconnect in a myriad of ways, and their interplay can lead to outcomes which can be disabling and/or enabling. Popular culture, as a significant social tool, with mediums such as images, films, TV serials, advertisements, music, literature, comic books, animations, video games, popular news, social media etc., plays an extremely critical role in constructing gendered roles and norms, as also helping deconstruct them.

The problem of the twentieth century is the problem of the color line, the question as to how far differences of race-which show themselves chiefly in the color of the skin and the texture of the hair-will hereafter be made the basis of denying to over half the world the right of sharing to utmost ability the opportunities and privileges of modern civilization.

—W.E.B. Du Bois (1900)

 

Are there multiple forms or species of racism or simply variations of a fundamental structure?

—Jared Sexton (2012)

 

I have only one solution: to rise above this absurd drama that others have staged around me

—Fanon (1952)

In a 2019 piece in The Guardian, Indian writer-activist Arundhati Roy says of the space, created by the literary: “It’s a fragile place in some ways, but an indestructible one. When it’s broken, we rebuild it. Because we need shelter. I very much like the idea of literature that is needed.” This idea of literature as a fragile shelter that needs constant rebuilding throws open the question of the literary communities. What is the nature of this community of readers and writers constructed by the act of literature? How can literature have a purchase on public culture, if at all? With the onset of social media, can we see literature in the 21st century as a communitarian exercise anymore?
