ARKANSAS REVIEW: A Journal of Delta Studies focuses on the seven states of the Mississippi River Delta, from St. Louis to the Gulf of Mexico. This area includes the southern half of Missouri; the southern third of Illinois; the western third of Kentucky; the western half of Tennessee; and all of Arkansas, Mississippi, and Louisiana. Interdisciplinary in scope and aimed at a general academic audience, we welcome scholarly contributions from all the humanities and social sciences, including anthropology, art history, cultural studies, folklore studies, history, literature, musicology, political science, and sociology. We also publish creative material—fiction, poetry, essays, and visual art—that evokes or responds to the Delta cultural and natural experience. Non-Delta related material is not considered for publication.
