Several of my closest friends are PhD students and as such I am always on the prowl for resources that pertain to their research. My friend Stina, who I’ve blogged about before, does really amazing work on rural queer land movements. Thus, on a quest to find information pertinent to her work, I came across a site called Documenting the American South (DocSouth).
For anyone looking for primary documents on Southern history, literature, and culture – this is the digital place for you! DocSouth has texts, images, and audio files in fifteen different thematic collections, including songs, oral history interviews, and books. A couple which interested me most greatly are Going to the Show, which describes the history of movie going in North Carolina and North American Slave Narratives.
