Southerners on Film: Essays on Hollywood Portrayals Since the 1970’s

Description

The representation of Southerners on film has been a topic of enduring interest and debate among scholars of both film and Southern studies. This collection of 15 essays examines the problem of Southern identity in film since the civilrights era. Fresh insights are provided on such familiar topics as the redneck image, transitions to modernity and the prevalence of the Southern gothic. Other essays reflect the reinvigorated and expanding field of new Southern studies and topics include the transnational South, the intersection of ethnicity and environment and the cultural significance of Southern identity outside the South.
