  • History and Humanitarianism: A Conversation
    • Authors: Hilton M; Baughan E, Davey E, et al.
      Abstract: There has been an undeniable interest in recent years in the history of humanitarianism. It is a field that has grown quickly and, as a field of inquiry, it incorporates a vast spectrum of subjects: from the history of anti-slavery movements in the eighteenth century, emergency relief in times of famine in the nineteenth, responses to refugee crises in the twentieth, through to longer-term development and poverty eradication programmes during and after empire. It embraces both private philanthropy and public assistance, from individual states and intergovernmental agencies, and intersects with so many other broad themes, from histories of race and gender, human rights, conflict and security, and even the overall development of capitalist modernity. Each of these subjects in turn have their own historiographies, and all draw too on a vast and well-established literature from across the social sciences and humanities.

  • Law, Status And Agency in the Roman Provinces*
    • Authors: Czajkowski K; Eckhardt B.
      Pages: 3 - 31
      Abstract: This article re-introduces the study of law in the Roman provinces into debates on Romanization ‘from the periphery’, bringing together evidence from both the Eastern and Western parts of the empire. The focus is on individuals who used Roman law in their private dealings before the Constitutio Antoniniana (212 CE): how they used Roman law, why they did so, and whether or not their usage can be regarded as the kind of provincial agency that has been emphasized in recent studies of Romanization. The argument is based on documents reflecting private legal practice. Although there are important differences in both the number and type of such documents in the Eastern and Western provinces, the same methodology can fruitfully be applied across the empire. It then becomes apparent that, at least in the first decades after provincialization, individuals’ reactions to the availability of Roman legal instruments were rather similar in the East and West. By employing Roman legal instruments that should have been reserved for Roman citizens, non-citizens in the provinces could assert a higher status than they in fact possessed. Roman law became a tool that locals could and did use to advance their own, individual goals.

  • Refiguring Local Power and Legitimacy in the Kingdom of Italy,
           c.900–c.1150*
    • Authors: Fiore A.
      Pages: 33 - 67
      Abstract: The aim of this article is to discuss the re-figuration of local power in the Kingdom of Italy, between the beginning of the ninth century and the early twelfth century, by focusing on changing discourses about its legitimacy. It argues that until the late eleventh century the monarchy maintained a central role, but that the outbreak of civil wars in the 1080s led to a strong dislocation of the structures of power, with the rise of territorial lordship, and a crisis in the traditional role of the king as the source of authority. The fragmentation of traditional frameworks of power and the new importance of local assets went hand in hand with a forceful investment by local lords in other legitimizing discourses. Legitimization was sought by lords no longer through a ‘top-down’ relationship with the king/emperor, but rather through pacts with their peers and subjects. However, the rise of territorial lordship was also connected with a sharp increase in the use of violence and the coercion of peasant subjects in order to impose new seigneurial burdens. Pact and violent coercion coexisted in the complex interrelation between lords and subjects.

  • Passing The Book: Cultures of Reading in the Winthrop Family,
           1580–1730*
    • Authors: Calis R; Clark F, Flow C, et al.
      Pages: 69 - 141
      Abstract: Large numbers of annotated books that belonged to members of the Winthrop family — which included the founding governor of the Massachusetts Bay Colony and other individuals prominent in the early modern British Atlantic world — survive in libraries across the Northeastern United States. The notes in their margins reveal how the Winthrops responded to a vast array of material, from alchemical recipes to political tracts. Once deciphered and compared with other documents, such as letters and diaries, they show not only the ways in which the members of the family read these varied books, but also how they learned to do so and how they passed their skills on to new generations. Most important, they reveal that reading played a central role in the family's life and in its members' responses to political and religious crises.

      Abstract: On Christmas Day 1717 the North Sea area was hit by the most deadly flood disaster in its entire history, which took the life of more than 10,000 people. Present-day concerns over climate change and the recurrence of extreme weather conditions might tempt historians to discuss floods like 1717 in terms of the overall vulnerability and resilience of societies or ‘socio-environmental systems’. However, in medieval and early modern Europe it is hard to find examples of societies which did not prove resilient in the face of flooding: through absorption or adaptation, coastal society as a whole was perfectly able to overcome periodic episodes of flooding even when such episodes were sometimes perceived as real catastrophes. At the same time, however, coastal societies differed greatly in the number of people exposed to harm and suffering. Processes of political and economic marginalization, as well as unsustainable forms of land-use, turned some people into victims of flood disasters, while others escaped. Hence only by moving discussions of vulnerability and resilience from the level of societies to the level of people, can a better understanding of natural hazards and disasters in the past and at present be achieved.

  • Anti-Slave-Trade Law, ‘Liberated Africans’ and the State in the South
           Atlantic World, c.1839–1852*
    • Authors: Richards J.
      Pages: 179 - 219
      Abstract: From 1807 onwards, bilateral slave-trade treaties stipulated how naval squadrons would rescue slaves from slave ships, and how states should arrange the settlement and apprenticeship of these slaves, to transform them into ‘liberated Africans’. Comparing interactions between the state and liberated Africans at sea along the South African and Brazilian coasts, and in the port towns of Cape Town and Salvador, reveals how the legal status of liberated Africans changed over time. Current scholarship has framed liberated Africans in terms of whether they were attributed rights or suffered re-enslavement, and thus focused on their solidarity through claiming rights, ‘ethnic survivals’ or creolization. Instead, this paper argues anti-slave-trade legislation ascribed to liberated Africans a set of unguaranteed entitlements – promises regarding status and treatment without obligating states to uphold that status or treatment. By focusing on the precise aspects of legislation that operated at each point in the process of anti-slave-trade activity – rescuing slaves from slave ships, transportation to a port, processing through a court, and apprenticeship – this paper unearths how the law came into force in the encounter between state officials and liberated Africans, as part of the complex transition from slavery to free labour.

  • Imperial Amnesia: Race, Trauma and Indian Troops in the First World War
    • Authors: Buxton H.
      Pages: 221 - 258
      Abstract: World War I was a watershed both for military psychiatry and British imperial mobilization. This article investigates how clinicians, psychiatrists, and British and Indian officials responded to the psychological crises of their South Asian servicemen, of whom over 1.4 million served between 1914 and 1918. It argues that mental health treatment in the Great War served as an experimental site where officers and soldiers contested ideas about race, pain, and the body, revealing the flexibility of racial ideologies. Army and medical personnel routinely mobilized racial taxonomies in order to diagnose – and, at times, ignore altogether – non-white servicemen’s mental disorders. As the mental health crisis among British and Indian Army soldiers expanded, some experts began to acknowledge psychological illness among Indian troops and rethink the interplay of therapeutic care and racial identity. This insight was willfully forgotten in the interwar decades, an amnesia facilitated by medical authorities’ investment in pre-war ideas of ‘martial races’ and ethnic difference.

  • The Tramp’s Tale: Travels Within the Soviet Union and Across its
           Borders, 1925–1950*
    • Authors: Fitzpatrick S.
      Pages: 259 - 290
      Abstract: Anastasia Egorova was a one-legged Russian tramp whose wanderings took her all over the Soviet Union in the 1920s-1940s. At the end of the Second World War, she decided to see the world, and successfully crossed the Western border in 1945, claiming to be Polish. Travelling on to Italy, she found refuge in a psychiatric hospital and stayed there for four years, until Soviet officials looking for repatriation prospects came by and offered her free passage home. She accepted, and was duly repatriated and returned to her native village in 1950. This microhistory from the Soviet archives is examined with reference to the larger topics of marginality, individual agency, and travel and “self-actualization,” as well as the limitations of the “top-down” totalitarian model for Soviet history and questions of historical subjectivity.
