Abstract

e dit or’s n o te e l asticit y The south seems on the cusp of something new. No longer looking back- ward, we incline our bodies forward in a gest ure that seems to mimic or at least expect progress. Across its work in the many interdisciplin - ary modes of American Studies, southern studies is poised to look to its fut ure once again. The Societ y for the Study of Southern Literat ure reaches the half-century mark in the spring of 2018, and its annual call to meeti ng involves an invitation to those who might not consider them- selves “southernists. ”This journal turns fifty in 2018, a milestone we have prepared for by inclining ourselves toward more interdisciplinary scholarship and developing a social media presence. By all account s, the Presidenti al election of November 2016 has opened up a host of reflections, national and otherwise. As scholars across the region take stock of the new normal , something like expand and contract is occurring. Movement. This edition of south ret urns us to in-print book reviews, a format that we will be conti nuing in subsequent issues. We will still showcase brief opinions on books in our online sec- tion, “What We’re Reading Now.” Expansion and contraction looks forward to crisis and opportunit y (our special issue 50.1). We nest in place, realizing that the dream of the warmth of other suns is not only ever elusive but also, more than ever, impossible. Shar on P. holland Chapel Hill, N.C.
