Amid current attempts at resituating Southern Studies in new geographical, theoretical and pedagogical contexts, the Center for the Study of Southern Culture at the University of Mississippi hosted a symposium that brought together a diverse group of scholars to discuss "The US South in Global Contexts." This interdisciplinary conference engaged, not only the changing outlines of geography and the trends of demography, but current discussions of identity, transnationalism, and regionality.

Southern Spaces presents short excerpts from the keynote addresses of the conference, as well as samplings of the roundtable talks given by several of the scholars in attendance. Symposium participants plan to publish the proceedings of this event. For further information, contact the Center for the Study of Southern Culture at
