In Haunted Bodies, Anne Goodwyn Jones and Susan V. Donaldson have brought together some of our most highly regarded southern historians and literary critics to consider race, gender, and texts through three centuries and from a wealth of vantage points. Works as diversive as eighteenth-century court petitions and lyrics of 1970s rock music demonstrate how definitions of southern masculinity and femininity have been subject to bewildering shifts and disabling contradictions for centuries.
Anne Goodwyn Jones is Associate Professor of English at the University of Florida. Susan V. Donaldson is Associate Professor of English and American Studies at the College of William and Mary. Both have lectured and published widely on gender and the South.
