A Space of Our Own: Bridging New Media and Traditional Scholarship with Southern Spaces in the Classroom

This case study explores the use of new media and online content in U.S. classrooms of higher education through an examination of the internet journal,Southern Spaces. We argue that Southern Spaces provides a forum for innovative scholarship and provides for unique teaching opportunities by taking advantage of the internet's capabilities to deliver audio, video, interactive imagery, and text in a rapid and timely fashion while also facilitating new ways of organizing, presenting, and updating research. Our case study offers a detailed overview of the philosophies behind Southern Spaces, three examples featuring Southern Spaces in the classroom and a brief discussion of pedagogical implications for the website.
