      CALL FOR ESSAYS

      This is an invitation to submit proposals for essays to join others in a
      book (now under advance contract) that explores historical tourism in
      the American South. Historic sites, for the purposes of this volume,
      are those places that have been restored and/or adapted for the purpose
      of preserving some aspect of southern history and interpreting that
      history to the public. This volume will be divided into four sections
      each exploring a different aspect of tourism to sites of southern
      history and memory and proposals should fit into one of the following
      categories:

      People and Places: will examine individual southerners and the historic
      sites preserved to tell their story.

      War and Remembrance: will examine Revolutionary, Civil War,
      Spanish-American sites in the region.

      Race and Slavery: will examine historic sites that interpret slavery or
      civil rights.

      Landscape and Memory: will examine tourist sites that are concerned
      with the physical environment. Suggestions include cemeteries, Rock
      City, the Virginia's Natural Bridge or the Florida Everglades.

      Final essays will be 20-25 pages in length and will be accompanied by
      illustrations.

      For consideration, please send a brief CV and a 1-page abstract
      describing your topic to:

      Karen L. Cox, Editor
      Department of History
      UNC-Charlotte
