About The Course
Our course explores the
nature of oral tradition and how its study can provide a methodology for
understanding Southern literature. We
will discuss Southern artists and photographers and will show how the history and traditions of the South influences their work. We
will consider the work of Southern Writers and discuss how they utilize
specific stories, music, and art as a structure for literary forms such as
the novel and the short story. Lastly, we look into the rich history of southern
music and its roots in work chants, fife and drum, and one-strand on the wall
