"Violence, the Body, and "The South"" is a boldly innovative contribution to a new Southern Studies, which provides a model of collaborative, intergenerational, interracial, interdisciplinary scholarship. The issue challenges the traditional division of the United States between 'North' and 'South', revealing that the complexities of violence and pleasure, representation and illusion, innocence and guilt, gender and race exist in infinitely inflected combination in the Americas, not simply in the 'South'.This collection represents first-rate examples of gender, critical race, genre, and material culture studies in the present-day academy. The issue's topics range from epistemological and authorial rebellions marking Frederick Douglass' "Narrative" and Charles Chesnutt's "The Marrow of Tradition" to the twentieth-century labours of writers, such as Francisco Goldman and Helena Maria Viramontes, who work to make visible the complexities of 'North' and 'South' with respect to subordinated Latino/a bodies. William Faulkner is revisited in an essay on the internalisation of 'race' in "Light in August"." Guess Who's Coming to Dinner" and "In the Heat of the Night" are analysed in a framework of homopolitical desire. Genre and regional studies combine in an energetic essay resituating Harriet Jacobs' "Incidents in the Life of a Slave Girl" with respect to 'Northern' fiction. "Violence, the Body, and "The South"" provides a rigorous redefinition of the location, force, scope, and significance of 'The South' for any contemporary project legitimately entitled American studies. The contributors include; Houston A. Baker Jr., Jeannine DeLombard, Laura Doyle, Jennifer Rae Greeson, Andrea Levine, Dana D. Nelson, Ana Patricia Rodriguez, and, Bryan Wagner.
