The Southern Changes Digital Archive

“…it is not simply final outcomes but processes of change which are significant to people’s experience of their world.”

–Doreen Massey

Between 1978 and 2003, the Atlanta-based Southern Regional Council published Southern Changes, a journal featuring social research, cultural analysis, reportage, commentary, reviews, and interviews by an extraordinary list of writers, scholars, and activists. The Southern Changes Digital Archive is a searchable database that provides full-text versions of each issue of Southern Changes over this twenty-five year period. The articles in Southern Changes range across many subjects: racial justice and the freedom struggle, voting rights, educational opportunity, economic democracy, social equality and inclusion, women’s rights, environmental justice, critical regional studies, regional-global issues, and popular culture.

The Southern Changes Digital Archive is produced in collaboration with the Beck Center for Electronic Collections at Emory University and the Southern Regional Council.
