TAMPA, Fla. – An assistant professor from the College of Arts and Sciences Department of History published his first book, “Stories of the South: Race and the Reconstruction of Southern Identity, 1865-1915.”
In this book, author Steve Prince, Ph.D., addresses the reconceptualization of the time between the end of the Civil War and the rise of Jim Crow segregation. His book focuses on the evolving vision of the South in United States culture.
Prince examines the changes of racial democracy in the South in his book. He utilizes print, visual and performance culture from the time period to understand how southern identity changed during the Civil War era.
Prince has written other publications about the South and the Civil War era. He also is working on his next book, “The Ballad of Robert Charles: Race, Violence and Memory in the Jim Crow South.“
Prince currently teaches U.S. History and Theory of History. He conducts graduate seminars on the South, the Civil War and other related topics. Prince earned his Ph.D. from Yale University.
