Studies in South Carolina Culture
Carolina Currents is a peer-reviewed annual publication that provides current scholarly work related to the state of South Carolina.
Understanding for the Common Good
Connecting academic research to the lived experiences and practical concerns of South Carolina residents
Carolina Currents seeks submissions from within and across a variety of disciplines, including history, archeology, anthropology, literature, political science, religious studies, art history, and sociology. Consistent with its motto, “Understanding for the Common Good,” Carolina Currents seeks to connect academic research to the lived experiences and practical concerns of the state’s residents. Deliberately inclusive of all South Carolinians and all geographical regions, the publication actively seeks submissions related to communities that have received little scholarly attention.
Approximately half of each volume will focus on a particular theme, reflecting the commitment to under-represented regions and populations. The thematic foci for the initial volumes include:
- Faith Communities and Social Change
- Beyond Mills and Malls: Small Town Transformation
- Healing in the Country: Non-Traditional Rural Health Initiatives
- Unheard Stories: Recovering Under-Represented Cultures and Unacknowledged Voices
- Beyond Technology: Improving Learning Through Connections and Creativity
Carolina Currents is sponsored by Francis Marion University and published in partnership with the University of South Carolina Press.
