      Understanding the South, Understanding America: The American South in
      Regional, National, and Global Perspectives

      American Studies at the University of Manchester is pleased to
      announce the launch of an AHRC-funded International Research Network
      devoted to the interdisciplinary study of the US South from the
      colonial era to the contemporary period. Directed by Brian Ward in
      cooperation with colleagues at the Universities of Cambridge (Tony
      Badger), Copenhagen (Martyn Bone) and Florida (Bill Link), this
      international Network seeks to encourage methodological innovation in
      Southern Studies across disciplines, promote a more sophisticated
      understanding of key aspects of southern history, and foster greater
      appreciation of the relationships between the South and other national
      and international sites.

      Following a successful preliminary conference in Manchester in May
      2008, further meetings are planned in 2009-10 for Florida, Cambridge,
      Copenhagen and Manchester again.

      For more information on the Network visit the Understanding the South
      website at http://arts.stage.manchester.ac.uk/southnetwork/ or email
