Southern Quarterly

The latest Southern Quarterly, edited by University Distinguished Professor Emeritus Dr. Philip Kolin, investigates the connections between healthcare and Southern culture. Prominent historians of Southern medicine, nursing, nutrition, and race explore such topics as Civil War environmental warfare, Southern vs Northern hospitals during the Civil War, the training of physicians in the 19th century South, the stereotypes behind "Negro medicine," unconventional healthcare practices, and the representation of black physicians in early 20th century Southern literature. Subscribe to the Southern Quarterly or read online at Project Muse.
