Literature

--Ed.]

On the heels of the very successful launches of H-Memory and H-Human-Rights,
H-Net proudly announces its newest addition, in cooperation with the Society
for the Study of Southern Literature (SSSL).

H-Southern-Lit promotes the study and discussion of U.S. southern literature
by scholars, teachers, researchers, and other interested parties. In
particular, H-Southern-Lit is conceived as a forum for the study and
discussion of U.S. southern literature around the world. H-Southern-Lit also
supports the exchange of ideas and information between scholars in U.S.
southern literary studies and related fields--and on related H-Net networks.
Finally, H-Southern-Lit disseminates information about its sponsoring
organizaton, the Society for the Study of Southern Literature (SSSL), to
both SSSL members and non-members. It is a network developed in conjunction
with the Society for the Study of Southern Literature although it is open
for all to join.

Check out the resources list at:
http://www.h-net.org/~southlit/resources.html
Suggestions for additions are welcome--please email the editors.

The goals of H-Net lists are to enable scholars to easily communicate
current research and teaching interests; to discuss new approaches, methods
and tools of analysis; to share information on electronic databases; and to
test new ideas and share comments on the literature in their fields. All
network messages are permanently archived and searchable.

Like all H-Net lists, H-SouthernLit is moderated to edit out material that,
in the editors' opinion, is not germane to the list, involves technical
matters (such as subscription management requests), is inflammatory, or
violates the evolving, yet common, standards of Internet etiquette. H-Net's
procedure for resolving disputes over list editorial practices is Article
II, Section 2.20 of our bylaws, located at:
