Research Statement

Anthony Stanonis has, and continues, to pursue various interests in cultural studies, especially in regard to urban history, foodways, tourism, and the American South. His first book, Creating the Big Easy: New Orleans and the Emergence of Modern Tourism, 1918-1945 (Georgia), examines the transition of the city from a commercial center to a tourist magnet. In 2008, with support from the Institute for Southern Studies at the University of South Carolina and the Watson-Brown Foundation, he edited an essay collection entitled Dixie Emporium: Consumerism, Tourism, and Memory in the American South. He contributed the introductory essay, entitled "Selling Dixies," and a chapter on southern foodways, entitled "Just Like Mammy Used to Make: Foodways in the Jim Crow South." The essay collection concentrates on the role of race in constructing travelers' experiences, the function of foodways in manifesting regional values, and the complexity of souvenirs as regional representations. Stanonis has recently drafted a book-length study of beach communities in the American South since the Civil War tentatively titled Faith in Bikinis: American Leisure and the Transformation of the Jim Crow South to be published by the University of Georgia Press. This project examines the tensions between the conservative, white supremacist culture of the American South and the burgeoning seaside resorts that celebrated tan skin as well as more liberal attitudes toward alcohol, sex, and religion.
