  • From Communal to Independent Manhood in Liverpool, Nova Scotia, ca.
           1760–1820
    • Abstract: ON HIS 62ND BIRTHDAY, May 4, 1798, Simeon Perkins reflected on his 36 years as a resident of Liverpool, Nova Scotia, a rural seafaring community on the province’s South Shore. Over those years Perkins held many roles both public and private: father, trader, slaveholder, ship owner, member of the Nova Scotia assembly, colonel in the militia, county treasurer, proprietors’ clerk, husband, brother, son-in-law, justice of the peace, judge of probates.1 In those roles, and despite them, Perkins had not prospered. Now, at 62, he found himself in “Circumstances Very low,” having “Spent my time to very little purpose for myself, much of it … taken up in publick Business, to very little profit, and a great deal of Anxiety ...

  • The Meaning of Mount McKay: Anemki-waucheau and Settler Colonial
           Reterritorialization in Thunder Bay, Ontario
    • Abstract: IN JANUARY OF 2019, Ontario Court Justice Frank Valente ruled that Brayden Bushby—a white settler teenager from Thunder Bay, Ontario—will stand trial for second degree murder in the death of Barbara Kentner, an Anishinaabe woman and member of Wabigoon Lake Ojibway Nation. Two years earlier, in January of 2017, Bushby is alleged to have thrown a trailer hitch at Kentner from a moving car and to have shouted “got one!” after the metal object struck her in the abdomen.1 Barbara died in July of that year due to complications related to the attack, which took place near the intersection of Cameron and McKenzie Streets in Thunder Bay.2The social politics and spatial arrangements of the hate crime are stark even without ...

  • “A Dragon, Bog-Spawned, Is Now Stretched O’er This Land”: The Ku
           Klux Klan’s Patriotic-Protestantism in the Northeastern Borderlands
           During the 1920s and 1930s
    • Abstract: IN 1927 THE HOULTON, Maine, Ku Klux Klan Klavern extended a “special invitation ... [to] all Klanswomen and Klansmen ... to attend Church and Parade at Littleton, Maine.” G. E. Davies, a local Klansman, called this “a special occasion.” The Klansmen in Houlton had a particular “desire [that] all their Canadian frater’s [sic] do come forward. Canadian Kmen and women, your friend is calling.”1 Davies, the King Kleagle, or chief organizer, of the Klan in New Brunswick passed this information on to his klavern, or local lodge, in Debec Junction, less than 15 miles from Houlton and separated only by a permeable border. This invitation reflected an ideological tidal wave sweeping through the northeastern borderlands of ... Read More

  • À l’assaut du plafond de verre : journalisme et militantisme adaptatif
           chez les étudiantes au Québec (1956–1969)
    • Abstract: DANS UN DOSSIER consacré à la place des femmes au Québec, Le Quartier Latin titrait en 1970 : « La Québécoise s’en vient ! », et ajoutait en sous-titre : « L’hiver des femmes au Québec tire-t-il à sa fin1' » Comme si de rien n’était, cette question posée par le principal journal étudiant de l’Université de Montréal escamotait les avancées du féminisme de la période précédente. Du coup, il révélait aussi, sous la figure de l’hiver, sorte de temps immobile s’apparentant à la grande noirceur, l’exclusion relative des femmes de l’Histoire. Un tel titre confirme ce que Karine Hébert a découvert pour la première moitié du XXe siècle, soit que « la place [des filles] dans le grand groupe social de la jeunesse ne va pas ... Read More

    • Abstract: ON THE EVENING of January 30, 1970, in a packed auditorium on the campus of Waterloo Lutheran University (WLU), 33 young women competed for the title of Miss Canadian University Snow Queen 1970. Although the annual pageant had been a starring aspect of the WLU Winter Carnival since 1963, the 1970 pageant garnered special attention not for the crowning of the Miss Canadian University Queen but for the protest staged by members of the women’s liberation movement. As the contestants lined the stage, Janiel Jolley, a protest candidate from Simon Fraser University (SFU), stood at the back of the auditorium and marched on stage as her supporters “raised fist[s] of liberation singing Solidarity Forever.”1 After speaking ...

  • The Quakers 1656–1723: The Evolution of an Alternative Community by
           Richard C. Allen, Rosemary Moore (review)
    • Abstract: This volume by Richard C. Allen and Rosemary Moore, with seven contributors, provides a much needed and welcome expansion on previous scholarship regarding the evolution of the early Quaker movement throughout the late seventeenth and early eighteenth centuries. Whilst previous works, such as William Braithwaite’s Second Period of Quakerism (1919), are not replaced, Allen and Moore’s collection of essays provide a necessary addendum to earlier scholarship in that it addresses nuanced topics in Quaker historiography, including the experience of women, the Quaker’s unique relationship with law and commerce, and the history of slavery. Indeed, even the title, casting the Quakers as an “alternative community,” is new ... Read More

  • History from the Bottom Up and the Inside Out: Ethnicity, Race, and
           Identity in Working-Class History by James R. Barrett (review)
    • Abstract: Lewis Hine’s 1910 photograph Tenement Child with a Blank Wall to Stare At adorns the cover of this collection. It makes you wonder what this child could be thinking, and that is precisely the question the historian of Irish American labour and biographer of Communist Party USA leader William Z. Foster, James Barrett wants you to ask. For, as the title suggests, history from the bottom up will always be inadequate if we fail to fully integrate subjectivity. Barrett argues we need to understand workers as people, with complex, varied, and potentially cosmopolitan lives, if we are to understand the history of the working class. Opening with his own experiences growing up Irish Catholic and working class on the west ... Read More

  • Victorian Jamaica ed. by Tim Barringer, Wayne Modest (review)
    • Abstract: “History has been a troublesome subject for West Indians because nineteenth century history writing was deeply imbricated with the language of imperialism” (p. 263). So begins Catherine Hall’s important contribution to the breathtaking, Victorian Jamaica. “Troublesome,” rather than “irrelevant,” Hall argues, as she revises Derek Walcott’s famous phrasing, because despite the inappropriateness of the narrow conceptualization of history as “the stories of great men and their achievements, of monuments and institutions and classic texts,” Caribbean people have imagined, invented, and insisted on a history of their own. Caribbean History is hardly one carried in monuments: it is in the shadows of the trees, the echoes ... Read More

  • A Sea of Debt: Law and Economic Life in the Western Indian Ocean,
           1780–1950 by Fahad Ahmad Bishara (review)
    • Abstract: In a somewhat pioneering work, Fahad Ahmad Bishara analyzes the legal underpinnings of commerce in the western Indian Ocean, most notably in western India, Oman, Zanzibar, and mainland East Africa between 1780 and 1950. He adds to a growing body of work on this region and time period that traverses political boundaries across the Arabian Sea. Bishara’s contribution is a legal perspective. In many ways, A Sea of Debt is the history of khiyār sales and waraqas. Khiyār sales were transactions in which people pawned their property in exchange for credit and were the preferred method of credit/debt exchange across the nineteenth-century western Indian Ocean. Meanwhile, waraqas were the “papers” on which khiyār sales ... Read More

Les auteurs n’ont évidemment pas la prétention de soumettre au public une première histoire sociale de l’Allemagne des XVIe-XVIIIe siècles. Bien au contraire, comme le soulignent les éditeurs dans leur introduction puis Matthias Schnettger dans sa contribution historiographique, il n’est pas de sujet plus renouvelé depuis une trentaine d’années que celui du Saint-Empire.

    • Abstract: Jennifer S. H.

  • Maryland, My Maryland: Music and Patriotism during the American Civil War

    • Abstract: In Maryland, My Maryland, musicologist and Civil War historian James A. Davis interrogates the life of the song “Maryland, My Maryland” to better understand how music creates patriotism. This case study of the creation, performance, and reception of the song weaves between a telling of the events of the war, with particular attention given to Marylanders’ roles in and experiences of the conflict, and the diverse and changing meanings Americans attached to and extracted from the anthem. In addition, Maryland, My Maryland considers the ways personal, local, regional, and national identities shaped, and were shaped by, music. The author aptly refers to this study as a “musical microhistory,” and achieves his stated ... Read More

    • Abstract: On the face of it, one might think that White Settler Reserve: New Iceland and the Colonization of the Canadian West is a retelling of the traditional story of “the opening of the West” in the last quarter of the nineteenth century. In this deeply researched study, Ryan Eyford certainly recounts the arrival of Icelandic migrants to Manitoba and the difficulties they confronted adapting to their new environment. But as the title suggests, this ground breaking work is really a study of the federal government’s decision to establish colonization reserves for new immigrant groups, and how this attempt to create “a new liberal colonial order” (p. 9) worked on the ground. Today, we associate reserves with Indigenous ... Read More

    • Abstract: L’enjeu de la reconnaissance des peuples autochtones est présentement un sujet chaud au Canada. Dans Reconnaissance et exclusion des peuples autochtones au Québec, l’historien Camil Girard et le géographe Carl Brisson retracent l’histoire du statut politique et juridique des notions de « territoires » et de « peuples » autochtones au Québec. Pour eux, les Européens ont d’abord formellement reconnu la souveraineté des peuples autochtones. Toutefois, au XIXe siècle, cette approche aurait été abandonnée par les autorités au profit d’une politique discriminatoire et spoliatrice. Enfin, dans les années 1980, l’État québécois légitima les revendications nationales des Autochtones. Cet ouvrage s’inscrit dans la continuité ... Read More

In one volume, Hutton walks his reader step-by-step through the history of Western witchcraft scholarship, rethinking the relationship between folklore, history, and anthropology, before finally applying this new-found knowledge to a case study of witchcraft trials in Britain. What would normally be an unwieldy amount of information is manipulated into a fascinating, readable, digestible book, one that I would recommend to anybody who is either starting out in any period of witchcraft studies ...

Goitien and its fictional telling by Amitav Ghosh, the Genizah repository, replete with enchanting epistles, mysterious fragments of manifests, and trade lists, has held infinite promise for historians and their readers. Abraham’s Luggage does not disappoint; indeed, Lambourn opens for us a fascinating story of what it meant to carry goods and how life-stories, personalities, and spaces were packed into luggage that made its way through the trading world of the Indian Ocean. From a micro historical analysis of a luggage list studied in relation to a dense corpus of material on the India trade run by Jewish merchants, the author ... Read More

Il aborde la question de la mort avant, pendant et après la Révolution française, en tentant d’analyser comment cette dernière s’insère dans une crise préexistante des cimetières parisiens et, surtout, comment apparaît une nouvelle culture des inhumations après la « terreur », symbolisée entre autres par le nouvel espace des morts créé au Père-Lachaise, par l’organisation de visites dans les catacombes ou ...

Si de plus en plus d’historiens, de sociologues, de politologues et autres -logues s’intéressent à l’homme et à son régime, l’étudiant sous plus d’une couture, force est d’admettre qu’il n’est pas aisé de dépasser la dichotomie Grande Noirceur/Révolution tranquille à laquelle le « cheuf » est étroitement associé.

           Marshall (review)
    • Abstract: In this ambitious book, Peter Marshall has provided an excellent overview of the Reformation in England. He rejects attempts to reduce matters of faith to political, economic, or social issues and insists that the English Reformation was primarily about religion, which, to be sure, was inextricably linked to other phenomena. He also argues convincingly that the manner in which religion was practiced and even understood changed dramatically over the course of the Reformation. The author takes issue with the many scholars who have maintained that England’s population was quite compliant and blithely went along with the various confessional changes mandated by different Tudor monarchs.This tome is divided into four ...

De jeunes femmes et de jeunes hommes encadrent la fragile construction censée bloquer la troupe. Dénonçant les bas salaires et la tyrannie des contremaîtres, les ouvriers et ouvrières de la chaussure, suivis par celles et ceux de la porcelaine, s’étaient en effet mis en grève quelques mois plus tôt; le mouvement s’est ensuite durci et s’est généralisé à toute la ville.

I also considered the more recent ubiquity of the Québec-based export, Cirque du Soleil, with its astonishing international reach, otherworldly acrobatics, and multi-billion-dollar assets. I did not reflect on the central role of “freak shows” to histories of commercial amusements, though I had examined once popular “girl shows” under canvas tents in my book Burlesque West: Showgirls, Sex, and Sin in Postwar Vancouver (2009).

    • Abstract: Given the steady growth of scholarly interest in Métis history over the past four decades, it is surprising that urban Métis communities have all but eluded sustained investigation. For the most part, scholarship on Indigenous experiences of cities has focused on First Nations people registered under the Indian Act and on the colonial mechanisms that contained, expelled, and erased them from urban spaces. Rooster Town expands and complicates this scholarship by training a critical lens on one of the many Métis communities that emerged on the edges of settler cities on the prairies and in British Columbia in the first half of the twentieth century. Its eponymous community developed on the southwest fringe of ... Read More

Made wealthy by maritime trade and slavery, as well as its medieval inheritance, it was the most important Atlantic port in the United Kingdom. But alongside Bristol’s great wealth and flourishing urban environment were the struggles of popular politics, protest, and the inevitable efforts of the city’s elites to police and to impose order. These provide the themes of Steve Poole and Nicholas Rodgers’s impressive and ground breaking study Bristol from Below—a remarkable and vivid reconstruction of plebeian life in eighteenth-century England and the boundaries imposed by wealth and power.

Addressing this historiographical imbalance, Seidman comparatively analyzes the various strains of antifascism that emerged in Spain, France, Britain, and the United States. He proposes an alternative analytical lens for understanding antifascism that challenges conventional interpretations, contending that antifascism’s most consistent and effective practitioners were not Marxists, leftists, or even democrats, but, rather, conservatives and ...

The shop assistant had suspicions about the women from the moment they came in.

Tran uses an array of sources from the Le and Mac dynasties to challenge notions of “authentic” Vietnamese culture and women’s place within this culture. Much of Tran’s book centres around confronting three common truisms replicated and discussed within Vietnamese studies: that women’s status in Vietnamese history has been able to demonstrate either Vietnamese uniqueness, Southeast Asian cultural cohesion, or the lingering presence of Confucian oppression. These truisms imply a passive position on the part of women; in this iteration, their treatment reflected the region’s development. Rather, here, Tran endeavours to ... Read More
