1546 - Down Homes: The Varieties of Southern Experience
In his 1941 classic The Mind of the South, the journalist W.J. Cash remarked that, “If it can be said there are many Souths, the fact remains there is also one South.” Flip that statement around and it’s equally true. Using Durham and North Carolina as starting points, this course explores various Souths that have existed over time and geography to offer a sampling of Southern cultures from race to NASCAR racin’ and from blues to Bear Bryant: how they fit into (or don’t) the notions “South” and “Southern,” and whether the South is really Southern any more. Lecture (plus questions). Viewing Videos. Field Trips.
