CFP: Food and the American Dream
Proposals due February 13, 2023
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.

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.
