      dedicated group of graduate students affiliated with the University of 
      Mississippi's Center for the Study of Southern Culture. The original

      The second volume of CrossRoads: A Southern Culture Annual, to be

      features fascinating, accessible scholarly works that explore a wide 
      range of topics (including Southern literature, music, food, and visual 
      art) and that elucidate Southern perspectives on religion, politics, 
      race, ethnicity, gender, education, regional identity, and "sense of 
      place." The second volume includes essays or other scholarly prose 
      pieces by Donald Davidson, M. Thomas Inge, Margaret D. Bauer, Peter 
      Schmidt, Ryan A. Brasseaux, Donald Edward Davis, Kathryn Bright Gurkin,
