|Online magazine South Writ Large presents second issue|
|Monday, April 30, 2012|
Contributors to South Writ Large answer the question, “What does it mean to be ‘Southern’ in an increasingly interconnected world?” in the publication’s Spring 2012 issue, available online at southwritlarge.com.
The pieces, which include narratives in memoir, fiction, art, poetry and oral history, reveal the divergent backgrounds and distinct experiences of some of the men and women who claim the designation of Southerners.
The issue includes works by University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill’s W. Hodding Carter III and Sarah McNamara. In addition to being a professor of leadership and public policy, Carter is an award-winning journalist, educator, public official and civic leader. McNamara is a history doctoral student and a member of the research team at UNC’s Southern Oral History Program.
The quarterly online magazine was founded by James Peacock, anthropology professor, and is an outgrowth of the UNC Global South Working Group. Since 2007, this group of authors, artists, psychoanalysts, historians, social scientists and documentarians has met regularly to share and discuss topics that link the southern United States to the wider world.
