Southern Religion through its Dissenters, Outsiders, and Critics

Earlier in this volume, as part of our ongoing effort to expand the scope of topics and approaches in the journal, JSR published a forum on "Southern Religion and the Atlantic World." This forum, on "Dissenters, Outsiders, and Critics," works toward a similar goal. Whereas the previous forum analyzed and expanded the "southern" in southern religion, this one takes a critical look at the "religion." Edited by Charles McCrary, this forum contains four essays that examine southern religion through lenses provided by subjects who often are excluded from dominant depictions of southern religion.
