Published by The University of Southern Mississippi since 1962, The Southern Quarterly is a scholarly journal devoted to the interdisciplinary study of Southern arts and culture. A member of the Council of Editors of Learned Journals (CELJ) and available through Project MUSE, The SoQ defines "the arts" broadly, including literature, painting, sculpture, music, dance, theatre, film, and popular culture. We also publish studies of Southern culture informed by such disciplines as history, folklore, anthropology, political science, and social geography. The SoQ defines "The South" as anything south of the Mason Dixon Line, including the Caribbean, to the larger Global South. The SoQ brings scholarly articles, cutting edge interviews, archival documents with commentary, photo essays, portfolios, and book reviews to subscribers all over the world.
