1.12.11 Author and Professor of English at the University of Virginia Jennifer Greeson joins Coy to discuss her new book Our South. The conversation first touches on Thomas Jefferson’s true identity (American, Virginian, but not necessarily Southerner) before traveling through the history of the U.S. South from a literary approach beginning with the Revolutionary War. In what ways was the Mason-Dixon line viewed as a barrier between worlds from both inside and outside of the South? How can the fantasy world of literature help us to understand the relationships between South-North and South-World? Professor Greeson’s book Our South: Geographic Fantasy and the Rise of National Literature, addresses these questions and much more.
