This call for submissions hit my interwebs this morning, and I thought it might be of interest to our community:
Southern Cultures, the award-winning quarterly from UNC's Center for the Study of the American South, encourages submissions from scholars and other thoughtful writers from around the world for our special issue devoted entirely to "Southern Waters." We will be accepting submissions of polished drafts for this special issue through June 30, 2013.
We are interested in reflections on all aspects of water, including music, navigation and mapping, disasters (from drought to flood), property (riparian rights to ownership), faith and cosmology, literature and art, drink, resource and energy (from hydroelectric to fracking), and more. Submissions on water topics such as Southern tears, beach music, bourbon and branch, river baptisms, drowning, resorts, borders, swamps, agriculture and aquaculture, fishing, etc. are all encouraged.
With really great production values and an orientation toward specialists and lay audiences, Southern Cultures (both the magazine and the website) occupy a valuable place in the academy. Check it out and submit! I know we have more than a few riparian specialists among our readership.
