south: a scholarly journal

Latest Issue: Volume 51, Number 1: Fall 2018

Bibliographic Information: ISSN: 2470-9506



The Southern Literary Journal was published from 1967-2015. In 2015, the journal transitioned to become south: a scholarly journal, edited by Sharon P. Holland. With the publication of Volume 51, Number 1: Fall 2018, south ceased publication. The work that the editors of south began continue in another initiative, Critical Ethnic Studies, led by a group of faculty across the College of Arts and Sciences at UNC-Chapel Hill. For more information visit the Critical Ethnic Studies website.

Back issues of Southern Literary Journal and south are still available through our partners at Project MUSE and JSTOR.
