This class will explore one of the most repressive regions in the US: the Southern worlds of plantation, slave quarter, and hillbilly-hideout. How did blues and country music emerge? How did the literature of Faulkner, Ralph Ellison, and Carson McCullers grow out of the South? How did stock car racing grow out of moon shining?
