Feb. 1, 2024

Page spread from What Has Been Will Be Again in Southern Cultures

Professor Jared Ragland has published a photo essay in Southern Cultures, a peer-reviewed journal by the University of North Carolina’s Center for the Study of the American South. The essay features 15 photographs from an ongoing project, What Has Been Will Be Again, which has led Ragland across more than 25,000 miles and into each of Alabama’s 67 counties to photographically survey his home state’s cultural and physical landscape and document sites of ongoing generational injustice. 

Gothic South (Vol. 29, No. 4)  unpacks the Gothic South, exploring its haints, hollers, and hoodoo and is guest edited by Kinitra D. Brooks, Ph.D, the Audrey and John Leslie Endowed Chair in Literary Studies at Michigan State University. The issue also features a conversation with National Book Award winner Jesmyn Ward, photo essay by Kristine Potter, and fiction by noted author Rebecca Bengal.

What Has Been Will Be Again is also the subject of a solo exhibition currently on view at Texas Tech School of Art’s SRO Gallery through Feb. 8.
