April 11, 2012
Professor of English and American Studies Catherine Gunther Kodat was invited to supply the concluding "Afterword" to the latest issue of Philological Quarterly, a special number on the New Southern Studies and the New Modernist Studies.
Charged with assessing the papers of the volume's contributors, Kodat's "state of the field" essay also predicts likely developments in future scholarship on literary modernism and the global South through a discussion of the work of African American modernist poet Melvin B. Tolson.
This spring/summer double issue features work by scholars from the University of Iowa, the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, Louisiana State University, the University of Mississippi, Boston University, the University of Manchester and the University of Richmond.
