The Abolitionist South (Fall 2021)

Guest Editors:
T. Dionne Bailey (Colgate)
& Garrett Felber (University of Mississippi)

Deadline for Submissions: November 30, 2020

 

Southern Cultures encourages submissions from scholars, writers, and artists for The Abolitionist South, to be published Fall 2021. For The Abolitionist South, we seek submissions that make visible a radical US South which has long envisioned a world without policing, prisons, or other forms of punishment. As PIC (prison industrial complex) abolitionist Angela Davis has pointed out, radical simply means “grasping things at the root.” A region so often exceptionalized for its brutality and white supremacy is also the seedbed of freedom dreams and radical movement traditions.
