ESO – Bibliographies

The Emerging Scholars Organization will compile a range of bibliographies relevant to southern studies. Our goal is to provide graduate students and early-career scholars with lists of the most foundational texts in the field. These bibliographies will cover several categories of academic interests, including gender, sexuality, disability, post-southernsim, ecocriticism, race, class, postcolonialism, and globalism.
