LSU Press’s Southern Literary Studies series began in 1963 and has published books on virtually every aspect of the literature of the American South that scholars have explored since that time. The series’ founding editor was the legendary Louis D. Rubin Jr., who served until 1993, when Fred Hobson succeeded him, retiring in 2011 after overseeing scores of award-winning titles. Scott Romine, also an LSU Press author, assumed editorship of the series in 2012.
Among the many outstanding books published in the series are The Complete Works of Kate Chopin, edited by Per Seyersted; Selected Letters of Robert Penn Warren, edited by William Bedford Clark, Randy Hendricks, and James A. Perkins; Resisting History: Gender, Modernity, and Authorship in William Faulkner, Zora Neale Hurston, and Eudora Welty, by Barbara Ladd; The Real South: Southern Narrative in the Age of Cultural Reproduction, by Scott Romine; and The Companion to Southern Literature, edited by Joseph M. Flora and Lucinda H. MacKethan.
Today the Southern Literary Studies series continues and expands beyond its original purpose, as LSU Press seeks to publish more works that “tell about the South” and its evolving identity.
