Why an author site?

A few years into writing my blog Pop South, I began using it to promote my work as an author and speaker.  I’ve come to the realization, however, that the blog should be its own entity.  I also concluded that as someone who has had some modest success as a public intellectual, I should develop an author site to highlight my publications and expertise on the American South, especially as it pertains to Confederate culture writ large (not just ideology, but flags, monuments, etc.) and presentations of the region in popular culture.

I also have new books in the works–one monograph and a co-edited collection.  In the coming months, I plan to blog about the monograph and the experience of researching and writing it.  I hope you’ll follow along.

Cheers!
Karen
