Developed for teachers, students, and researchers, educational resources gather Southern Spaces publications into several important fields of knowledge. Featuring well-crafted articles, videos, reviews, interviews, and digital projects, these continuously updated collections of open access materials offer valuable resources for creating study guides and course syllabi, and for advancing research projects. To learn more about our educational resources and how you can incorporate them into your research, teaching, and learning, see our Southern Spaces blog post.
Etymologically, the term queer signifies a slant perspective, perceiving and interpreting askew. The multimedia articles, interviews, photo essays, blog posts, and reviews featured in this educational resource examine space and culture queerly from an array of subject positions and intersectional identity formations. From the memoirs of Ben Duncan and Jim Grimsley to narratives of queer Atlanta spaces like Charis Books and the Joy Lounge, from studies of the queered authorial imaginations of Flannery O’Connor and William Alexander Percy to broader queer explorations of race, gender, sexuality, and memory, each of these featured pieces looks at real and imagined southern spaces, places, and culture askew and anew.
