Session Information

Description: Narratives of the American South, especially black life in the South, are at the forefront of America’s popular imagination. However, these renderings often obscure regional and racial complexities. This interdisciplinary roundtable interprets southern studies and black studies as mutually constitutive. Participants approach the contemporary black South as a multidimensional cultural space, a locus of black intellectual and cultural production.
