  • The Flailing Women of Dijon: Crowds in Ninth-Century Europe*
    • Authors: Bobrycki S.
      Pages: 3 - 46
      Abstract: This article uses a salient case study (flailing women in ninth-century Dijon) to make two related arguments about the unusual nature of crowds in early medieval western Europe: (1) When gatherings involving marginal social groups (non-elites, women) threatened elite power in eighth- and ninth-century Europe, they did so not by directly confronting elite authority (e.g. mobs attacking bishops), but indirectly, in what anthropologists have called a “slantwise” fashion: by gathering in the wrong way, place, or time (e.g. crowds neglecting their parish church in favour of new relics, depriving church leaders of income through tithes). This is because early medieval governance, lacking strong institutions, relied on predictable, face-to-face gatherings for social order and resource extraction.(2) Because the crowd in early medieval discourse normally evoked hierarchy and order (Roman words for “riots” now referred to “assemblies” of monks and angels), elite polemics against “slantwise” crowds were also indirect. Like crowd critics later in European history, early medieval elites condemned dangerous crowds using gendered language. But unlike modern theorists who gendered the crowd itself as essentially female, ninth-century ecclesiastical writers used tropes of female (and rustic) manipulability to paint otherwise permissible behaviours (collective worship, almsgiving, penance) as illegitimate.The article thus questions a widely-held view that the crowd disappeared in the early medieval West, compared both to earlier and later periods of European history and to the contemporary Byzantine and Islamic worlds. That view depends on historiographical assumptions about what counts as a crowd. Early medieval crowds, both as a subject of discourse and a group of practices, were indeed unusual, but they were no less socially central.

  • Trees, Trade and Textiles: Potash Imports and Ecological Dependency in
           British Industry, c.1550–1770*
    • Authors: Warde P.
      Pages: 47 - 82
      Abstract: This article charts the development of the trade in a key input into early modern British industry: potash, used as a source of alkali, predominantly in the making of soap for washing woollens, and the bleaching the linen. Although an essential intermediary input into the manufacturing processes through precursors to the modern chemical industry, this trade and its ecological impact have gone almost entirely unnoticed by historians. The article sets out the scale of the trade and its organization reaching to regions of supply in the Baltic and Russia, before a rapid switch towards North American suppliers after 1760. Knowledge of the potash trade expands the scope and understanding of the ‘organic economy’ to a product that accounted for the largest share of ‘ghost acres’ abroad used to underpin British industrial development and whose wood requirements came to far exceed the production of wood within Britain. Data on the ash trade provides an indicator for the scale of industrial output, and relative size of the textile-finishing sector in England and the Netherlands that may modify our understanding of the relative fortunes of industries in both countries.

  • Eastward Enterprises: Colonial Ireland, Colonial India*
    • Authors: Ohlmeyer J.
      Pages: 83 - 118
      Abstract: This article re-examines the career of Gerald Aungier, ‘founding father’ of Bombay and president of Surat (1669–77) through the lens of early modern Ireland. It looks closely at his roles as successful entrepreneur and cosmopolitan imperialist and reconstructs his public and private global networks. It has two objectives. First, it considers how Ireland, England's oldest overseas colony, may have influenced the development of Bombay in the 1670s and how a Protestant from Ireland contributed to the formation of empire in Asia. It will be argued that in a number of key areas Ireland served as a ‘laboratory for empire’ for seventeenth-century Bombay, much as it did for India in the nineteenth century. Irishmen such as Aungier operated as agents of the English empire, establishing structures and formulating policies that were first implemented in colonial Ireland and later transferred to India. The second goal of this article is to invite scholars to interrogate eastward enterprises, as well as westward ones, in a more interconnected way. It investigates the intimate interplay between commerce and colonization and the importance of challenging traditional distinctions between the commercial and imperial eras in British India, as well as distinct notions of a colonial Atlantic world and a ‘trading world’ of Asia.

  • Illuminating the Enlightenment: Public Lighting Practices in the
           Siècle Des Lumières*
    • Authors: McMahon D.
      Pages: 119 - 159
      Abstract: This article explores the relationship between the Enlightenment as a cultural and intellectual phenomenon and actual illumination in the long 18th century. Focused on street lighting in Paris, it nonetheless seeks to situate the French case in the broader context of developments in public lighting in the French provinces, Europe, and the Atlantic World. In the concerted effort to illuminate dark streets, the Enlightenment was operationalized in ways that bore fundamentally on commerce, sociability, and perceptions of progress, enlightened government, and enlightened space. At the same time, the attempt to illuminate formerly dark spaces generated reactions. A ‘dialectic of illumination’ was the counterpart to the dialectic of Enlightenment, fostering resistance to the new regime of light and its efforts to impose, through human ingenuity and instrumental reason, greater security and social control.

  • The Unscripted Revolution: Male Subjectivities in Germany,
           1918–1919*
    • Authors: Föllmer M.
      Pages: 161 - 192
      Abstract: This article aims to shed new light on the German Revolution of 1918/19 by focusing on male subjectivities on both a micro-level and in political discourse. The first section analyses how after the sudden end of the war and the demise of the Empire, workers and peasants asserted their freedom and dignity as civilian men. They celebrated, pursued their self-interest, confronted representatives of the old order or appealed to the provisional institutions of the emerging Republic for support. This diversity of subjectivities fuelled the revolutionary dynamic but impeded any prospect of a new consensus, a problem that haunted the three major currents of the German left. The second section argues that Majority Social Democrats, Independent Social Democrats and Communists attempted to unite and steer male subjectivities from their respective vantage points. However, a revolutionary subject remained elusive, which reflected both the complex transition from wartime to postwar society and a long-standing intellectual tension between deterministic, Marxist beliefs and an emphasis on voluntaristic, ethically inspired action. Hence the tendency, by May 1919, to declare closure on the revolution. The conclusion summarizes these findings and contends that the events of 1918/19 in Germany do not fit the model proposed in Keith Michael Baker and Dan Edelstein’s recent comparative volume ‘Scripting Revolution’. Instead they should be viewed as an ‘unscripted revolution’ in search of its own subject.

  • The Ymca and Low-Modernist Rural Development in South Asia,
           c.1922–1957*
    • Authors: Fischer-Tiné H.
      Pages: 193 - 234
      Abstract: This article explores the North America-dominated YMCA as an influential agent promoting ‘rural reconstruction’ schemes on the Indian subcontinent from the 1920s to the 1950s. During that period, religiously inclined civil society actors from the United States played a crucial role in shaping reform programmes designed to improve South Asian agriculture and educate the ‘backward’ village population. It sheds light on the global history of ‘sustainable village development’ programmes by reconstructing the emergence of a specific new body of development knowledge that was ostentatiously ‘low modernist’ — that is simple, cheap and easily reproducible — and thus deemed ideally suited for the uneducated and impoverished peasants of the global South. The new method was forged in South Asia through the mingling of American ‘scientific’ agricultural expertise and a protestant missionary impulse to morally ‘uplift’ the subcontinental villager with various strands of ‘colonial’, local and global knowledge. This ‘pidginised’ template enjoyed a worldwide circulation from the late 1930s onwards and informed the emerging transnational development regime that would flourish later during the early Cold War era.

  • The Limits of the ‘Liberal Imagination’: Britain, Broadcasting and
           Apartheid South Africa, 1948–1994*
    • Authors: Schaffer G.
      Pages: 235 - 266
      Abstract: This article uses the history of broadcasting to advance historical understanding of the relationship between Britain and apartheid South Africa, and makes a broader argument about the ways in which the British state understood and engaged the postcolonial world. It uses Trilling's idea of ‘the liberal imagination’ to explain the limited British challenges to apartheid, and the sustained close relations between the two countries. Covering the lifespan of the apartheid regime, it probes the conflicts and tensions which shaped the British presentation of apartheid on television and radio, both on the BBC and independent networks. Looking in depth at broadcasters' interactions with both states, as well as with activists, pressure groups and the public, it argues that Britain's approach to South Africa was significantly shaped by a self-image fashioned in the British Empire. This self-image enabled an empathetic engagement with South Africa, which was constructed, despite the brutality of apartheid, as familiar and reasonable. Ultimately, the article argues that the British ‘liberal imagination’ played a defining role in undermining opposition to apartheid throughout the regime's existence, creating an environment where the unreasonable and abhorrent nature of apartheid was neither fully understood nor challenged by any British government.

  • Peace Pact and Nation: An International Interpretation of the Constitution
           of the United States*
    • Authors: Edling M.
      Pages: 267 - 303
      Abstract: The origin of the United States Constitution is a perennial question in American historiography. In the last two decades a new ‘International’ interpretation has appeared that challenges an older ‘economic’ interpretation associated with Charles Beard and the so-called ‘Progressive’ tradition of historical analysis, which dominated scholarship for much of the twentieth century. The two interpretations assume different positions on what is known in American historiography as the ‘dual revolution’ thesis, i.e. the idea that the American founding was at the same time a struggle for home rule and a struggle over who should rule at home. Whereas the Progressive tradition has concentrated on the latter question, the International interpretation calls for renewed investigation of the former. The International interpretation presents the Constitution as a federal treaty that allowed thirteen newly independent and comparatively weak republics to maintain peace among themselves and to act in unison against competitors in the Atlantic marketplace and in the western borderlands of the continental interior. Whereas the Progressives identify the principal outcome of the founding to be the creation of a bourgeois state that faced inwards to make North America safe for capitalism, the Internationalists identify it as the creation of a stronger federal union that faced outward and allowed the United States to stand up to European powers and to conquer the North American continent. Yet despite the focus on the question of home rule, the Internationalist redefinition of the Constitution as a federal treaty also makes possible a fresh view on the old question of who should rule at home.
