"Dope with Lime"
About this episode
In this episode we speak with Siân Round, a PhD candidate in American literature at the University of Cambridge. Her research focuses, as she puts it, on “little literary magazines in the US South in the 1920s and mid-40s and their relationship to the . . . Southern Renaissance.” As such, she has delved into Lillian Smith and Paula Snelling’s work on South Today, specifically looking at how the magazine traces Smith’s artistic trajectory in the lead up to the 1944 publication of Strange Fruit. We spoke with her about South Today, reading Smith and Snelling in England, and her research.
