Critical Perspectives on Eudora Welty

Critical Perspectives on Eudora Welty is a new book series to be edited by Welty scholar Harriet Pollack. The series seeks to celebrate and preserve the legacy of Eudora Welty through scholarship and to explore new issues in Welty studies. These fresh approaches will reinforce the continued relevancy of Welty’s work to such contemporary topics as popular culture; social justice; and women’s, gender, and sexuality studies. The series, composed of both monographs and edited collections, will serve as a worthy commemoration to and celebration of one of the South’s greatest treasures.

The inaugural volume in the series, New Essays on Eudora Welty, Class, and Race, explores Welty’s artistic commentary on her time and place and the way it unfolded as the United States became more socially aware. Future volumes in the series will address Welty’s engagement with the mystery genre and Welty’s multimedia influences. As the leading publisher in Welty studies, University Press of Mississippi is pleased to enrich discussions of Welty’s oeuvre by providing framework and guidance for her readership in years to come.
