Gardner invite proposals for an edited volume examining the South in the decade of the 1930s with the intention of exploring topics that move us beyond a response to the Nashville Agrarians and Erskine Caldwell to a more inclusive and nuanced exploration of the region.  We invite submissions from the fields of history, literature, geography, and American Studies, as well as musicology, sociology, political science, and anthropology.

Re: Time for a new revisionist history of eugenics?

I think one problem with addressing post-war eugenics is the assumption that all medical reproductive interventions or other forms of population control are inherently eugenical, in the sense that they are related to a fascistic doctrine of reproductive control. Like your post makes clear, the popular image of eugenics is that of Nazi exterminations, or at the least their Lebensborn breeding programme -- or even 'positive' and 'negative' eugenics from Galton and Pearson-era eugenics.
