Summary
"In Confederate Exceptionalism communications scholar Nicole Maurantonio considers how so-called "neo-Confederates" can distance themselves from the actions of white supremacists while also clinging to the very symbols and narratives that tether the Confederacy to histories of racism and oppression in the United States. By examining museum exhibits, monuments, consumer culture, and other popular representations of the Confederacy, Maurantonio traces the ways these 21st-century Confederates blend the mythologies of the Lost Cause, frontier, and manifest destiny with contemporary ideas of post-racialism and inclusion to create this separation between the Confederacy and racist systems - a narrative she calls "Confederate exceptionalism.""--
