Description: Being a woman or being a man has traditionally carried special emotional baggage in the American South, where definitions of femininity and masculinity have intersected with notions of whiteness and blackness, of "quality" and "trash". Images of gender have been wielded in defense of slavery and white supremacy, of the honor of "gentlemen" and the violence of "poor whites". From the white southern lady praised for the absence of desire to the black lynching victim accused of excessive desire, southern sexuality has long been haunted by stories that shape severely hierarchical relationships among race, class, and gender.

In Haunted Bodies, Anne Goodwyn Jones and Susan V. Donaldson have brought together some of our most highly regarded southern historians and literary critics to consider race, gender, and texts through three centuries and from a wealth of vantage points. Works as diverse as eighteenth-century court petitions and lyrics of 1970s rock music demonstrate how definitions of southern masculinity and femininity have been subject to bewildering shifts and disabling contradictions for centuries.
