9780807859483: The New Encyclopedia of Southern Culture: Volume 13: Gender

This volume of The New Encyclopedia of Southern Culture reflects the dramatic increase in research on the topic of gender over the past thirty years, revealing that even the most familiar subjects take on new significance when viewed through the lens of gender. The wide range of entries explores how people have experienced, understood, and used concepts of womanhood and manhood in all sorts of obvious and subtle ways.

The volume features 113 articles, 65 of which are entirely new for this edition. Thematic articles address subjects such as sexuality, respectability, and paternalism and investigate the role of gender in broader subjects, including the civil rights movement, country music, and sports. Topical entries highlight individuals such as Oprah Winfrey, the Grimke sisters, and Dale Earnhardt, as well as historical events such as the capture of Jefferson Davis in a woman's dress, the Supreme Court's decision in Loving v. Virginia, and the Memphis sanitation workers' strike, with its slogan, "I AM A MAN." Bringing together scholarship on gender and the body, sexuality, labor, race, and politics, this volume offers new ways to view big questions in southern history and culture.

Book Description:

"Gender pervades the southern past and present. From patriarchy to southern belle, mammy to NASCAR dad, Thomas Dixon Jr. to Betty Mae Jumper, and Loving v. Virginia to Designing Women, gender has greatly influenced our constructions of 'South' and 'southern.' The new and exciting essays in this volume of The New Encyclopedia of Southern Culture remind us that gender continues to be a powerful force in both southern culture and historiography."--Craig Thompson Friend, North Carolina State University, editor of Southern Masculinity: Perspectives on Manhood in the South since Reconstruction and coeditor of Southern Manhood: Perspectives on Masculinity in the Old South
