W. J. Cash's 1941 observation that "there are many Souths and many cultural traditions among them" is certainly validated by this book. Although the Civil War and its "lost cause" tradition continues to serve as a cultural root paradigm in celebrations, both uniting and dividing loyalties, southerners also embrace a panoply of public ritualsâ??parades, cook-offs, kinship homecom-i+-+227768263511618ocn670411963file20050.53Ray, R. CelesteTransatlantic ScotsHistoryExamines the impact of the Scottish legacy on North American cultures and heritage. During the past four decades, growing interest in North Americans' cultural and ancestral ties to Scotland has produced hundreds of new Scottish clan and heritage societies. Well over 300 Scottish Highland games and gatherings annually take place across the U.S. and Canada. Transatlantic Scots is a multidisciplinary collection that studies the regional organization and varied expressions of the Scottish Heritage movement in the Canadian Maritimes, the Great Lakes, New England, and the American South.

CelesteHighland heritage : Scottish Americans in the American SouthFolklore"Each year, tens of thousands of people flock to Grandfather Mountain, North Carolina, and to more than two hundred other locations across the country to attend Scottish Highland Games and Gatherings. There, kilt-wearing participants compete in athletics, Highland dancing, and bagpiping, while others join clan societies in celebration of a Scottish heritage. As Celeste Ray notes, however, the Scottish affiliation that Americans claim today is a Highland Gaelic identity that did not come to characterize that nation until long after the ancestors of many Scottish Americans had left Scotland." "Through ethnographic and ethnohistoric research, Ray explores how Highland Scottish themes and lore merge with southern regional myths and identities to produce a unique style of commemoration and a complex sense of identity for Scottish Americans in the South. In the process, she challenges those who argue that ethnicity is tethered to race and that celebrations of ethnicity by European Americans are celebrations of "whiteness." More than a contemporary response to multiculturalism, Ray argues, these affirmations of Scottish-American heritage draw on centuries-old traditions and transnational links with the Scottish "homeland."" "Blending the objectivity of the anthropologist with respect for the people she studies, Ray asks how and why we use memories of our ancestral pasts to provide a sense of identity and community in the present. In so doing, she offers an original and insightful examination of what it means to be Scottish in America."--Jacket+-+72407325351883ocn050410503book20010.88Signifying serpents and Mardi Gras runners : representing identity in selected SouthsCase studies+-+K6297857351625ocn171056480book20070.29EthnicityEncyclopedias+-+487683253573ocn037355009book19960.76Ray, R.
