  • Editor's Note
    • Abstract: The format of this issue represents something of a departure for Biography. For many years we have published what we call "clusters" of essays focused on a particular theme alongside our individual open-forum articles. While our editorial staff typically determines the topics and invites the guest editors for our annual special issues, the cluster model gives us the opportunity to consider unsolicited proposals from colleagues who would like to present an edited collection of related essays to Biography's readership. In the past two years, we have received a number of compelling pitches, and for the first time we are running two clusters in the same issue. These projects have emerged within different geopolitical ... Read More

  • "Freaky" Asian Americans, Hip-Hop, and Musical Autobiography: An
           Introduction
    • Abstract: Decades later I can still hear and feel the bass thumping against the metal door of a gym locker. Boom. Boom. Boom-boom-boom-boom-boom. While we change, the beat continues and one of the boys calls out in his best Luther Campbell1 voice, "Somebody say hey. …" In response, most of us yell back, "We want some pus*y," with the last word tailing off. We all know the song, but some of us don't know if we should say the last word, whether it's appropriate or permissible. It was 1988, and we weren't quite sure how openly and publicly nasty we could be, even within the confines of a high school locker room, or how much we could openly tap into our teenage toxic masculinity and misogyny. It felt like there was something ... Read More

  • "Bad Gal" and the "Bad" Refugee: Refugee Narratives, Neoliberal Violence,
           and Musical Autobiography in Honey Cocaine's Cambodian Canadian Hip-Hop
    • Abstract: Honey Cocaine (government name Sochitta Sal) burst onto the hip-hop scene in 2012 with her remix of Chicago drill rapper Chief Keef's hit single "Love Sosa." Aptly titled "Love Coca," the music video of Honey Cocaine's remix garnered millions of views on YouTube and the attention of then-popular rapper Tyga (best known for his hit "Rack City"), who invited her to accompany him on his major tour in 2012 and offered a potential record deal with his label, Last Kings. Since then, Honey Cocaine has released numerous mix-tapes and EPs, the latest offering being The Gift Rap in 2015. Hailing from the low-income, majority-minority, immigrant Jane-Finch community in Toronto, the Cambodian Canadian emcee's style has been ... Read More

  • Redefined What is Meant to Be Divine: Prayer and Protest in Blue Scholars
    • Abstract: In the 2003 documentary Pass It Around, JoJo Gaon huddles together attendees of the first Asian Pacific Islander American (APIA) Spoken Word and Poetry Summit in 2001 in Seattle, Washington. JoJo is a main founder of isangmahal arts kollective (roughly translated from Filipino as "one love" arts kollective), a predominantly Filipino American group hosting the summit. Sporting a knitted kufi and a shirt with the word "Brown" on the front, George Quibuyen (aka Geo), a member of isangmahal, clasps his hands at his chin as if preparing for prayer. "The biggest fuckin' group hug you ever seen," Geo proclaims as the circle tightens. JoJo commends the group for taking back the streets, claiming space, and exploring the ... Read More

  • The Posse Cut as Autobiographical Utterance of Place in the Night
           Marchers' Three Dots
    • Abstract: Since its mythic inception in the abandoned Black and Brown boroughs of 1970s New York City to today's Asian and Pacific Islander neighborhoods of O'ahu, Hawai'i, Hip Hop speaks the lives of the marginalized.1 Turntablism, or the art of the DJ, is a fundamental aesthetic of hip-hop. With two turn-tables and a crossfader, a DJ is capable of layering very different songs, syncing them to the same tempo. While each audio track continues to play in its channel, the DJ seamlessly fades or quickly chops back and forth between them, forcing them to sound together. The DJ can set cue points across the two songs to continually skip forward and loop backward, editing and introducing new elements all while keeping a rhythm ... Read More

  • (Re)Writing Contemporary Cantonese Heritage Language and Identity:
           Examining MC Jin's ABC Album
    • Abstract: Both coauthors of this essay remember the first time we heard ABC in 2007. While we could not articulate exactly how we felt in academic terms, there was something uniquely nostalgic, funny, and stirring about the songs that really pulled at us as second-generation, Cantonese-speaking Chinese Americans. Since then, our academic trajectories have become more defined and developed, but our connection to MC Jin's work has persisted. We bought his albums and played them in our cars. We quoted his songs incessantly to our family members and fellow American-born Chinese friends. We even attended a benefit show he was emceeing. The opportunity to combine our research backgrounds in sociolinguistics and Asia Pacific/Asian ... Read More

  • Narrating Failure: MC Jin's Return to Rap in the United States
    • Abstract: In April 2014, Chinese American rapper MC Jin was the opening speaker of the TEDxUCSD talk series. MC Jin's talk, titled "In Search of the Chinese Kid Who Raps," tells a meandering, self-reflective tale about the highs and lows of his life, including his meteoric rise to mainstream fame as one of the first Asian Americans signed to a major rap label, Ruff Ryders Entertainment, and his equally rapid descent to obscurity after the release of his first single, "Learn Chinese" (2004), and his first album, The Rest Is History (2004).1 He recalls the criticism that he perpetuated Asian stereotypes in "Learn Chinese," which Asian American audiences have often interpreted as not only one of the main reasons for his ...

  • Beats, Rhymes, and Life in the Ocean of Sound: An Object-Oriented
           Methodology for Encountering Rap Music
    • Abstract: Tricia Rose's Black Noise (1994) blazed a trail, documenting the means by which rap's "oral articulations are heavily informed by technological processes, not only in the way such oral traditions are formulated, composed, and disseminated, but also in the way orally based approaches to narrative are embedded in the use of the technology itself" (85). I am inspired by Rose's pioneering conception of rap as being neither purely linguistic nor purely musical and therefore not inherently textual. With her considerations of highly amplified bass frequencies, mixing strategies that place drums at the same level as vocals, intentional use of distortion and noise, and innovative uses of the turntable and the digital ...

  • Introduction to Political Biography in Literature and Cinema
    • Abstract: In his essay "The Profession and Vocation of Politics," Max Weber contends that three specific qualities are necessary for conducting politics—"passion, a sense of responsibility, judgement"—which charismatic leaders are expected to embody to exercise influence and lead a nation (352). This vision of a "leadership democracy" undergirds the writing of political biography and the making of political biopics, which play out the internal and external debates that arise in the course of a political career, confronting political deciders with strategic choices to be made at times of historical crisis. The collective memory of political figures rests on such iconic historical moments, visually and aurally preserved in ... Read More

  • French Television and Political Biography
    • Abstract: When French television tackles biopics, it often favors and associates two domains: history and politics. This articulation is hardly surprising. Indeed, regarding history and its representations, Isabelle Veyrat-Masson says,La télévision s'est inventée en s'inspirant de ce qui l'avait précédé, comme toutes les formes culturelles, elle a rapidement cherché ses spécificités. Après la Seconde Guerre mondiale, tout naturellement, elle voit dans l'Histoire une source d'inspiration dans laquelle, avant elle, la peinture, la littérature, le cinéma, la radio avaient trouvé des sources d'inspiration.("La télévision à l'épreuve du biopic" 48)[The invention of television was inspired by what had preceded it, like all ...

  • Recasting the Iron Lady into Flesh and Blood: Gender Performance and
           Politics in Three Thatcher Biopics
    • Abstract: Writing about the relationships between political power and cultural fantasies after Margaret Thatcher's second reelection as Prime Minister in 1987, Jacqueline Rose stated that Thatcher was "both a fantasy and a real event" (20). Thatcher has long been a source of fascination, arousing extreme feelings among people who continue either to love or loathe her in equal measure. Her state funeral in 2013 demonstrated how divisive the former British Prime Minister still was, with groups of people extolling her and her legacy while others celebrated her death with bonfires and satirical songs such as "Ding-dong! The Witch is Dead."In the preface to his recent biography for the Oxford Dictionary of National Biography ... Read More

  • Writing the Life of Ronald Reagan: An Impossible Mission'
    • Abstract: The present reflection on Ronald Reagan as a biographical subject started in 2011, when French publisher Perrin asked me to write a biography of the fortieth president of the United States. Reagan is one of the most recognizable American names in France, even though most people do not really know how Ronald Reagan became president and what he actually did in the White House. Very few books have been written in French about him. With this biography, Perrin—which specializes in history books—wanted to fill this historiographical gap.From the get-go, writing a biography of Reagan seemed an enterprise fraught with difficulties beyond the traditional wrangling of the academic world on the ideological status of political ...

  • From Political Biography to Political Event: The Daens Myth in Literature
           in Cinema
    • Abstract: In 2017, Cinematek, the Royal Film Archive of Belgium, restored Daens, a 1992 biopic directed by Stijn Coninx about the Belgian priest and politician Adolf Daens (1839–1907). Cinematek's presentations of restored films are mostly cinephile events that are rather limited in scale and scope. The restored version of Daens, however, premiered in September 2017 at the popular Ostend Film Festival, after which it was screened on October 16, 2017, exactly twenty-five years after the film's original Belgian release, in ten multiplexes across Flanders, the northern, Dutch-speaking region of Belgium.1 Both the restoration process and the rerelease of Daens attracted a great deal of press coverage, which says something about ...

  • Political Life Writing in the Pacific: Reflections on Practice ed. by Jack
           Corbett and Brij V. Lal (review)
    • Abstract: The common quip that all politics are local is surely as true across Oceania's lifeworlds as elsewhere. Political phenomena occur in and through the lives of particular persons in the crispness of their heres and nows. For those not present to places and moments in which something emerged and became impactful, much of the political evanesces into the past and out of sight, below the threshold of awareness, scarcely available for reflection. This oversight can be as true for the architectonic developments of major political events as for the modest ebb and flow of experiences of power in the quick of the everyday. Moreover, given the limits of memory and the erosions of passing time, even key and keen observers to ... Read More

  • Tainted Witness: Why We Doubt What Women Say About Their by Leigh Gilmore
           (review)
    • Abstract: As the #MeToo hashtag began to go viral in October 2017, prompting an overdue reckoning with endemic sexual harassment and assault, memoirist Dorothy Allison's epigram resurfaced in my thoughts: "Two or three things I know for sure, and one is that I' d rather go naked than wear the coat the world has made for me" (71, emphasis in original). In its bold refusal to accept the weight of the world's judgment, Allison's telling of family sexual violence and class shame crystallizes the necessity—but also the riskiness—of survivors going public with their stories. While leaders of the #MeToo movement, including Black feminist organizer Tarana Burke, who coined the phrase for use by survivors in 2006, have been ... Read More

  • Picture Bride Stories by Barbara F. Kawakami (review)
    • Abstract: Picture Bride Stories, by Barbara Kawakami, is the culmination of nearly four decades of research on the lives of Issei women in Hawai'i. This text provides invaluable insight into the picture-bride practice in the early twentieth century, which involved immigrant workers marrying Japanese women on the recommendation of a matchmaker who exchanged photographs between the prospective bride and groom. Through interviews with these picture brides, Kawakami explores their motivations and experiences, as arranged marriages were not unusual in Japan, and women had different reasons for becoming picture brides. Kawakami's book represents an invaluable contribution to the history of Japanese Americans in Hawai'i because it ... Read More

  • How Come Boys Get to Keep Their Noses' Women and Jewish American
           Identity in Contemporary Graphic Memoirs by Tahneer Oksman (review)
    • Abstract: Tahneer Oksman's engaging monograph explores the ways in which Jewish American women cartoonists express sexual difference in autobiographical forms that combine word and image. Her focus is on identity construction, drawing upon Stuart Charmé's anti-essentialist formulations of Jewishness to examine how contemporary artists reflexively map their journeys of self-revelation both diachronically and synchronically. The first chapter discusses the career to date of Aline Kominsky Crumb, the self-proclaimed "great-grandmother" of women's autobiographical comics (18). Kominsky Crumb began publishing in the early 1970s and is married to (non-Jewish) countercultural cartoonist, Robert Crumb, with whom she has occasionally ... Read More

  • Gendered Testimonies of the Holocaust Writing Life by Petra M. Schweitzer
           (review)
    • Abstract: Within the voluminous field of Holocaust testimonial literature, Petra M. Schweitzer selected the theme of motherhood, which she explores in the Holocaust survivor writings of two male poets and three female memoirists. Instead of analyzing the entire corpus of each of these five authors, she picks up written texts she conceives as symbolic of motherhood. She has chosen to explore this particular literature and theme under the impact of the philosophies and writings of Jacques Derrida (1930–2004) and Emmanuel Levi-nas (1905–1995), to whose memory she dedicates her volume. Schweitzer was inspired mostly by Derrida's last testament from an interview he gave to Le Monde when he was terminally ill and confronting his ... Read More

  • Holocaust Memory in the Digital Age Survivors' Stories and New Media
           Practices by Jeffrey Shandler (review)
    • Abstract: At this hinge moment in history, when those who witnessed the Holocaust are dying and print is ceding ground to digital forms of information collection, preservation, and dissemination, Jeffrey Shandler's Holocaust Memory in the Digital Age: Survivors' Stories and New Media Practices examines innovative intersections between media and memory. By situating Holocaust testimony within the purview of the digital humanities, Shandler explores how relationships between text and image, lived experience and language, and corporeality and technology influence our understanding of the past.Holocaust Memory in the Digital Age focuses on the University of Southern California Shoah Foundation's Visual History Archive (VHA).

  • Back to the Blanket: Recovered Rhetorics and Literacies in American Indian
           Studies by Kimberly G. Wieser (review)
    • Abstract: In her monograph Back to the Blanket, Kimberly Wieser takes on the difficult and challenging work of providing an overarching articulation of what "rhetoric" and communicative practices mean in Indigenous settings while at the same time making sure that individual community and cultural orientations to specific practices are not lost. Native American and Indigenous studies face the always-present risk of reproducing paracolonial academic systems through disciplinary divisions and hierarchies without producing work that makes a difference for Indigenous communities. In this context, Wieser's book is a call to decolonize and reclaim the concept of "rhetoric" for Indigenous studies, not just for the sake of ... Read More

    • Abstract: Books returned by a native messenger must be properly wrapped up.Controversial, uneven and occasionally brilliant biography of Gordimer. Use with care.As Hedley Twidle corrects my "biographical demeanor" (108) and maps my "coordinates" to "capture" my lopsided ethics (94), he expands the contemporary archive of "redhibitory vice," the concept that Patricia J. Williams critiqued from the first page of The Alchemy of Race and Rights. Such vice entitles a purchaser to return defective merchandise, Williams explains, including a slave deemed crazy for constantly running away, or (per Twidle), "a life writing project that slips its moorings and runs out of control" (92).Twidle uncritically recites the xenophobic ...
