A Note About Transitions

A Note About Transitions As many of our readers may know, Fred Hobson is retiring after 23 years as coeditor of the Southern Literary Journal. In those years, he has shaped the course of southern literary criticism. Consistently open to new approaches and directions and graciously ushering in new schol- ars and their work in southern studies year after year, he has made the journal what it is today by always insisting on high standards and respon- sible, meaningful scholarship. He will be sorely missed, though we will continue to call on him to read manuscripts and offer his always sage, always calming advice (when he’s not busy climbing up and down the Grand Canyon, exploring the Australian Outback, or enjoying hikes in his beloved western North Carolina mountains). Fred is a modest, unas- suming man, but his massive and profoundly meaningful scholarship and editorial labors in the field of southern studies cannot be overstated. Fred, we dedicate this issue to you.

Abstract

As many of our readers may know, Fred Hobson is retiring after 23 years as coeditor of the Southern Literary Journal. In those years, he has shaped the course of southern literary criticism. Consistently open to new approaches and directions and graciously ushering in new schol- ars and their work in southern studies year after year, he has made the journal what it is today by always insisting on high standards and respon- sible, meaningful scholarship. He will be sorely missed, though we will continue to call on him to read manuscripts and offer his always sage, always calming advice (when he’s not busy climbing up and down the Grand Canyon, exploring the Australian Outback, or enjoying hikes in his beloved western North Carolina mountains). Fred is a modest, unas- suming man, but his massive and profoundly meaningful scholarship and editorial labors in the field of southern studies cannot be overstated. Fred, we dedicate this issue to you. At the same time that I look backward at Fred’s many contribu- tions and the sheer joy of working with him, I am delighted to welcome Florence Dore as the new coeditor of SLJ. Florence’s interests in post- 1945 American literature
