Reviews

"Rooting Memory, Rooting Place is a well-crafted work that makes important interventions into ongoing debates in Southern Studies about the extent to which the South can still be read and understood as a distinctive place in the contexts of twenty-first-century postmodernism and globalization." - Michael Bibler, Associate Professor of English, Louisiana State University, USA

"This is an engaging, insightful, and compelling book that evidences an admirable commitment to the field of Southern Studies and related branches of American Studies and Memory Studies." - Anna Hartnell, Lecturer in Contemporary Literature, Birkbeck, University of London, UK
