2429 - Down Homes: More Varieties of the Southern Experience
In his 1941 classic The Mind of the South, journalist W.J. Cash remarked, "If it can be said there are many Souths, the fact remains that there is also one South." Flip that sentence around, it's equally true. This course explores aspects of the American South and some "Souths" within it, from race relations to stock-car racin' and blues to basketball, along the way looking at the roots of Southern conservatism, forms of Southern religion, Low Country and High Country, ladies and gentlemen, memorials and mythology, the idea of "The South" and whether the region is particularly Southern any more.
