What We Make of Our Souths in Atlantic World Initiation

(p.239) 11 Dish-Washing in the Sea of Ndayaan
The American South and the Atlantic World

Keith Cartwright

University Press of Florida

This chapter reminds us that subjective judgements and personal knowledge of the Atlantic World, whether recorded in memoir, expressed in literature and other creative arts, or channelled into a particular brand of scholarship, have been important elements in generating understandings of the South’s relationship to places around the Atlantic. In offering a bold, multi-layered, temporally expansive interdisciplinary essay that circumnavigates the Atlantic World several times, Cartwright demonstrates how experiences, real and imagined, of the American South, of the Atlantic World, and of the connections between them, have always varied according to precisely whose perspective is being examined, privileged, or obscured.
