It has been my distinct pleasure as editorto shepherdthe transition from a more disciplinary home to an interdisciplinary one. In addition and perhaps most importantly,it has been an honor to publish many emerg- ing scholars like Regina N. Bradley and Amy King along the way. Our emphasis upon thei mportance of creativear ts and humanitiesi n the critical st udiesi maginary has highlighted w ork from Fred Moten,J oo Ok Kim and Ben Hamburger. Special issues on theleg acy of Patsy Yaeger, manifestationsof white supremacy in the global south, pedagogical praxis and the“ southern”s yllabus (David A. Davis) and nally fi , quaring childhoodhav e helped to develop thecritical lens of southernst udies more generally. As we look toward a futurethat this critical g aze might enable, it is withgreat ex citement and some sadness—whati n thispar t of thew orld is not bittersweet?—that I announce thatso uth will cease its print and online productioni n thefall of 2019. south committedit selfto a rigor- ous reimagining of theterritor y and its intellectual w ork.
