      Subject: QU: Southern Women in the Civil War and Confederate Nationalism


      Dear all,
      for my masters thesis I have done some work on stereotypes and realities in
      the lives of antebellum Southern women. My focus has been on plantation
      women, white and afro-american. The thesis focused on the stereotypes:
      Southern Belle, the Southern Lady, Mammy and Jezebel. Another subject was
      the work and motherhood of plantation women. At the moment I want to look
      further into the topic, stereotypes and realtities regarding Southern women
      in the Civil War. My special interest lies in subjects as stereotypes and
      confederate nationalism including popular texts, articles, novels, poems
      and songs.
      I already did some basic reading, including the books by Faust, Rable,
      Firor Scott, Clinton, Frankel, Weiner, Massey etc. But I still can't find
      enough on Women and confederate nationalism, especially regarding the
      meaning of above mentioned stereotypes/images!! Can anybody give me a hint
      were to look and were to find published sources. I am also interested in
      hints regarding poems, songs etc. written during the Civil War relating to
      these images.
      Thanks for the help!!
