Southern Quarterly Call for Papers: The Mississippi River and Southern Icons

The Southern Quarterly (SoQ) invites submissions for a special issue to appear in Spring 2015 devoted to the lower Mississippi River as an icon for the twentieth century South. The SoQ is looking for scholarly articles, archival documents, and interviews—but no poetry—on the symbolic importance of the river for and in Southern poetry and fiction, film, music, popular culture, and art. Interdisciplinary articles that focus on more than one of these areas are especially welcome. Manuscripts should run between 20-25 pages (double-spaced) and follow the MLA style of documentation. Please query Philip Kolin (Philip.Kolin@usm.edu) with any questions about your submission.

SoQ does not consider multiple submissions or work that has been approved elsewhere. All submissions must arrive before November 1, 2014, and should follow the SoQ guidelines, which are available online at: http://www.usm.edu/soq/guidelines.htm.

E-mail submissions of MSWord documents to SouthernQuarterly@gmail.com are preferred over postal delivery. For more information visit http://www.usm.edu/soq
