My first post for the new Southern Spaces blog, on our use of color photos from the Library of Congress’ Farm Security Administration/Office of War Information collection as banner images, is online. These photographs from the 1930s and 1940s depict rural farming practices, social life in towns, factories and their environmental effects, and aspects of World War II mobilization.
Other recent content on the Southern Spaces blog includes:
- A post by Sarah Melton on resources for finding media to accompany our authors’ scholarship, and
- A post by Southern Spaces Managing Editor Katie Rawson announcing the blog.
