Blair Center – Angie Maxwell

Angie Maxwell, assistant professor of political science and the Diane D. Blair Professor of Southern Studies

An American Studies scholar, Maxwell’s research interests include the modern South, the social construction of race and identity, and white political behavior. She and Todd Shields co-edited Unlocking V.O. Key Jr.: “Southern Politics” for the Twenty-first Century, released by the University of Arkansas Press in spring 2011. Her future publications include an edited volume of the notebooks of journalist James Agee and a book titled Why Do They Live There?: How the White Southern Inferiority Complex Shaped Modern America.

“Demographically, religion and, specifically, one’s view of the Bible remain the key distinguishing factors between the South and the non-South.”
