New articles on Southern Spaces journal

January 11, 2010

Two new articles have recently been published in the Southern Spaces interdisciplinary online journal:

Cameron B. LeBlanc (Emory University), “Preserving the Memory of Ybor City, Florida.”

LeBlanc surveys digital resources documenting Ybor City, Florida, in its early twentieth century heyday as the ‘cigar capital of the world,’ focusing particularly on the unique syncretic cultural identity that grew out of the combined heritages of its Cuban, Spanish, and Italian populations.

LeeAnn Lands (Kennesaw State University), “A City Divided.”

Lands examines the curious heterogeneity of Atlanta’s residential landscape in the late nineteenth century, despite increasing racial and class animosity; and the events that precipitated the turn to residential segregation in the early twentieth century.
