Leigh Anne Duck is Associate Professor of English at the University of Mississippi. Her research focuses on modern and contemporary literature, film, and photodocumentary concerning the southern United States; she also studies modern and contemporary literature of South Africa and the U.S., constructions of race and nation, and theories concerning space, narrative, memory, and neoliberalism. Her current book project considers how twenty-first century representations of the U.S. South provide a venue for contemplating the past and future of the larger nation; a longer-term project concerns U.S. southern and South African representations of segregation and apartheid and their aftermaths. She has published essays in the Journal of American Folklore, American Literary History, and other venues; her book, The Nation's Region: Southern Modernism, Segregation, and U.S. Nationalism, was published in 2006.
