Southern Literary Journal

Edited by Sharon P. Holland, University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill


As the premier publication devoted to the fiction, poetry, and drama of the American South, The Southern Literary Journal (1968-2015) published a wealth of scholarly articles and reviews. A commitment to important early Southern writers--William Byrd, William Gilmore Simms, George Washington Cable--as well as to some of the most important American authors--Mark Twain, Kate Chopin, William Faulkner, Richard Wright, Tennessee Williams, and others--placed the The Southern Literary Journal at the center of American literary scholarship.

In 2015, the The Southern Literary Journal moved from its home in the Department of English and Comparative Literature to the Department of American Studies at UNC Chapel Hill, with Sharon P. Holland succeeding outgoing editors Minrose Gwin and Florence Dore. In 2016, the journal was relaunched as south: a scholarly journal with a renewed focus on interdisciplinary research.

Back issues: Most recent four volumes available from publisher.

Online Access: Available from Project Muse.
