ANSO 235 Sociology of the South


The American South is known for its cultural distinctiveness. What is the South? What does it mean to be a southerner? How does being from or in the South impact one’s perspective on life? These are some of the questions explored in Sociology of the South. This course examines the history, cultures, and experiences of the South and southerners with particular attention to inequality, past and present popular culture, its relationship with other regions, and its impact on science.
