  • With and beyond Borders: Toward a Posthumanist American Studies
    • Abstract: I grew up during the Cold War in a divided country—divided by a fence, a wall, and two political and economic systems at (cold) war with one another. I lived just outside the town of Fulda, Germany, a small city with a beautiful baroque historic center known to locals as the favorite settlement of Saint Boniface, the eighth-century “apostle of the Germans,” whose bones were laid to rest in Fulda’s abbey church. But Fulda is not only famous for its role in the Christianization of medieval Germania. In the twentieth century, it became a site of some geopolitical significance: during the Cold War, the German- German border ran eighteen miles east of Fulda, through the rolling hillside of the Rhön. The area around ... Read More

  • Learning from June Jordan and Walt Whitman (and from Las Vegas, too):
           Notes on Inclusivity and Borders
    • Abstract: As I write this piece, I am twice removed from the country I live in, Germany, and from the country whose texts I have been studying for the better part of my adult life. Since my time as a graduate student at the University of Massachusetts Amherst in the 1990s, I have been preoccupied with the US American “republic of letters.” I am sitting in a colonial hotel in Havana, Cuba, participating in the annual conference of the Caribbean Studies Association. The conference theme is “Education, Culture, and Emancipatory Thought in the Caribbean.” The place I find myself in relates to my background and my work on US literature in different ways: the US embargo of Cuba and its repercussions have been the subject of ...

  • Precarious Romanticism: Nineteenth-Century American Literary Studies in
           Germany
    • Abstract: I should not talk so much about myself if there were any body else whom I knew as well.For this essay, and in keeping with this Forum’s intent, I will heed Henry David Thoreau’s advice. Such a focus allows me to address some of the general issues associated with the field of American studies in Germany from a particular subject position, one linked to a specific research field and shaped by my career stage. While I don’t think that topically or theoretically there is something inherently “German” about American studies in Germany—there is a Heideggerian Emersonian tradition in the United States, just as there is a pragmatist romanticist tradition in Germany—the question about the specificity of German American ...

  • On Our Cover for 7.2
    • Abstract: The Mulberry Bend. Jacob Riis devoted a full chapter of How the Other Half Lives (1890)1 to this notorious section of lower Manhattan, the “foul core of New York slums.” Disgusted, diverted, and dismayed in turn, Riis narrates the world the 1890 map on our cover cheerily plots in bright pink; winding streets with little air and less light, buildings jammed onto tiny parcels of land. The map gives the location of fire hydrants, where Riis describes the encounter, like something out of Stephen Crane’s Maggie, of “a really pretty girl with a string of amber beads twisted artlessly in the knot of her raven hair” and her “rude swain.” Balancing anecdote with numbers both large and small—figures of infant mortality or ...

  • Lost and Found in Gilead, Iowa
    • Abstract: The first time I taught Gilead, I thought it was the best thing I’d ever done in the classroom. I had feared that my students would object to the relative plotlessness of Marilynne Robinson’s meditative novel, a book written in the voice of a seventy-six-year-old Congregationalist minister recording reflections and memories for his seven-year-old son. Remarkably, no one did. On the contrary, they were captivated by the romantic sensibility that infuses Robinson’s work, and they responded readily to her invitation to pause. The book’s structure, short bursts of writing separated by blank space on the page, requires that the reader slow down, for the pleasures of Gilead consist in dwelling in the moment of ... Read More

  • Considering the Racially “Inscrutable” Child: Letter Response to Laura
           Soderberg, “Writing the Criminal Child: Antebellum Prison Records,
           Parenting Manuals, and the Rise of the Incorrigible Child”
    • Abstract: In our current moment, the criminalization and incarceration of children in the United States remains in the public eye. From the overpoliced children of the school-to-prison pipeline to the immigrating children separated from their families and detained indefinitely in concentration camps, the figure of the “incorrigible child” looms behind arguments about children’s culpability and justifications for their punishment. With these twenty-first-century conditions of childhood in mind, I eagerly approached Laura Soderberg’s essay “Writing the Criminal Child: Antebellum Prison Records, Parenting Manuals, and the Rise of the Incorrigible Child” (Fall 2018) and am honored to have the opportunity to respond.For me ...

  • Unraveling the Blood Line: Pauline Hopkins’s Haitian Genealogies
    • Abstract: In November 1900, Pauline Hopkins inaugurated her series for the Colored American, entitled “Famous Men of the Negro Race,” on shores beyond those of the United States: she began not in New York, Boston, or Washington, but rather in Haiti, under the aegis of Toussaint Louverture.1 In doing so, Hopkins implicitly redefines the Colored American as the Black Americas, locating the origins of the “Negro race” at the roots of the tree of liberty, that is to say, the Haitian Revolution. But Hopkins figures Haiti neither as a cradle of civilization, nor nurturing womb, nor benevolent father of a diasporic family. Instead, Toussaint appears as a specter, a lugubrious haunting of Western iconographies or, as Hopkins terms ... Read More

  • Regional Nationalism and the Ends of the Literary World
    • Abstract: What we now call antebellum American literature emerged from a tangle of conflicting attachments to overlapping scales of cultural geography. America was both more and less than a nation in the 1840s; imperial in regard to expansionism and provincial in relation to England, it was also a collection of regions loosely bound by disjointed networks of production.1 The Literary World (1847–53), an influential weekly trade journal edited by literary kingmaker Evert Duyckinck, illuminates how nationalist discourse within this contested cultural landscape was often not about the nation at all but rather about one or another of the regions jostling for cultural space.2 As its “Introductory” prospectus prefigures, the ...

  • Did Howells Give Up on Realism'
    • Abstract: Approaching the twilight of his long career, William Dean Howells—the nation’s, if not the planet’s, most vociferous advocate for literary realism—defected for a spell to romance. The turn of the twentieth century witnessed Howells’s serializing his Altrurian romances—A Traveler from Altruria (1892–93), “Letters of an Altrurian Traveller” (1893–94), and Through the Eye of the Needle (1907).1 The majority of this utopian trilogy traces the experiences and impressions of Aristides Homos (Greek for “best man”), a traveler from the fictitious land of Altruria, so called for its adoption of altruism in all areas of life, public and private. One would expect that the romances’ atypicality in Howells’s militantly realist ... Read More

  • On First Looking into Charles Chesnutt’s Homer
    • Abstract: In the summer of 1878, just after Reconstruction had come to a formal end, Charles Chesnutt read Homer’s Iliad. Chesnutt was twenty years old at the time, newly married and working as assistant principal of the State Colored Normal School in Fayetteville, North Carolina. Chesnutt read this work independently, in snatches of free time, and the response he described was complex and conflicted. He was fascinated that Homer’s Achilles could call a council on the all-powerful Agamemnon and “accuse him of avarice, cowardice, and selfishness without fear of punishment”—and equally struck by the gods’ arbitrary use of their power and the poet’s ability to draw from nature to understand the complexity of human emotion. ...

  • Introduction
    • Abstract: This Forum seeks to provide the readers of J19 with an exemplary glimpse into American studies in Germany today, with a view to how scholars in this particular academic framework see its position in the larger field. American studies may have undergone a turn toward the transnational in the twenty-first century, but it still undoubtedly has its structural center in the United States. While research and teaching may increasingly transcend the national epistemology that has both informed and limited the discipline for decades, many of the important professional institutions—publishing houses, journals, professional organizations, conferences, institutions, and so on—are located in the United States. One might frame ... Read More

  • My Sixty Years as an Amerikanist
    • Abstract: My life as an Amerikanist began in 1958 with a seminar on Herman Melville that brought my rather vague academic interests—I was then in my fourth semester—into sharper focus. My major had been German literature. But Melville made me switch (or, rather, “convert,” the experience was that intense) to the study of American literature. Melville’s novels, especially Moby-Dick, seemed new and exciting, so different from everything I had read so far as a beginning student that I didn’t have to think twice. Besides, there were other reasons: Germanistik was a huge field. I remember an advanced seminar on Goethe’s Faust with 200 participants. In contrast, my Melville seminar was small; we were about ten. The Germanistik ... Read More
