Abstract:

Once, history and "the South" dwelt in close proximity. Representations of the South in writing and on film assumed "everybody knew" what had happened in place and time to create the South. Today, our vision of the South varies, and there is less "there there" than ever before. In The South That Wasn't There, Michael Kreyling explores a series of literary situations in which memory and history seem to work in odd and problematic ways. Looking at Toni Morrison's masterpiece Beloved, he tests the viability of applying Holocaust and trauma studies to the poetics and politics of remembering slavery.
