Southern Spaces
A journal about real and imagined spaces and places of the US South and their global connections

Southern Spaces is a peer-reviewed, multimedia, open access journal published by the Emory Center for Digital Scholarship. We publish articles, photo essays and images, reviews, presentations, short videos, and monographs about real and imagined spaces and places of the US South and their global connections. We intend our audience to be researchers and teachers, students in and out of classrooms, and interested readers.

Southern Spaces publishes work in a variety of humanities and social science disciplines that represents and analyzes many souths and southern regions, offers critical scrutiny of any monolithic "South," interrogates historical geographies over time, and maps expressive cultural forms associated with place. We welcome submissions from scholars, photographers, journalists, and artists in such areas as geography; southern studies; critical regional studies; African American, Indigenous, and American studies; women's and gender studies; LGBTQ studies, public health; and social justice.

A digital publication, Southern Spaces provides an open access site for innovative scholarship by taking advantage of the Internet's capabilities to deliver audio, video, images, text, and data to facilitate new ways of organizing and presenting research. Southern Spaces archives its publication materials as a unit of Emory's Office of Information Technology (OIT) and is committed to providing a stable digital presence for content. Operational costs are funded by the Emory Center for Digital Scholarship.
