The Southern Quarterly Call For Papers on Freedom Summer Anniversary
The Southern Quarterly (SoQ) has extended the submission deadline for a special issue celebrating the fiftieth anniversary of the Freedom Summer Project and the passage of the Civil Rights Act. It seeks interdisciplinary scholarly articles, interviews, art, unpublished archival materials, photo essays, and poems. In particular, they invite submissions in the following areas:
- Historical Reflection at 50: Articles reflecting on the Freedom Summer Project and the Civil Rights act and the influence of these watershed events in today's society. Submissions that make use of primary source documents are encouraged.
- Literature of the Movement: Articles that focus on how Freedom Summer shaped the literary imagination in general, how poets and writers represented the events of Freedom Summer in particular works, or how the events of the Freedom Summer influenced civil rights-era literature and cultural production. Scholarly articles of 7,500-9,000 words are encouraged, though we are also open to unpublished archival materials and poems related to the topic. Direct any inquiries to section editor Brian Norman (firstname.lastname@example.org).
- Teaching Freedom Summer: Submissions that make use of primary source documents, videos, music, or other media are encouraged.
SoQ does not consider multiple submissions or work that has been approved elsewhere. For consideration for this special issue, please submit original manuscripts by June 15, 2014, following the SoQ guidelines, which are available online at: http://www.usm.edu/soq/guidelines.htm.
Email submissions of MSWord documents to SouthernQuarterly@gmail.com are preferred over postal delivery. Publication is planned for fall 2014.
