This issue of Southern Cultures frames its theme, Built/Unbuilt, not so much around the transformation of contemporary sites, but around landscapes and modernities left glaringly incomplete. While many of these sites have come to be viewed as parts of ordinary landscapes, the issue’s theme allows us to identify and bring attention to how extraordinarily unfinished they remain.
