  • The French Revolution is Not Over: An Introduction
    • Authors: Censer J.
      Pages: 543 - 544
      Abstract: Even as the French Revolution recedes further and further into the past, its importance continues to resonate because so much of our present was first rehearsed or performed during the revolutionary decade and its Napoleonic aftermath. Nineteenth-century historians, many of whom were politicians, related its political events, but these narratives eluded any consensus. Wave after wave of contemporary developments forced reassessments of the event, which led scholars to expand their attention to new subjects, particularly society and culture. Hovering over all these studies, right up to the bicentennial of the Revolution, was the desire to find a narrative that could accommodate the broad goal of some kind of consensus regarding the outbreak and the course of the Revolution.

  • Intellectual History and the Causes of the French Revolution
    • Authors: Censer J.
      Pages: 545 - 554
      Abstract: From the outbreak of the French Revolution in 1789, historians, politicians, and even the interested public believed radical ideas to be at the bottom of this upheaval. Upstaged by social explanations, particularly in the first two-thirds of the twentieth century, intellectual accounts have regained prominence, as recent scholarship has reiterated that ideas mattered. But what ideas' This essay focuses on those ideas that became evident at and around the outbreak of the revolution in 1788–89. For this period, a new wave of scholarship emphasizes not the idea of equality but rather historic rights and patriotism. In these accounts, Enlightenment notions of natural law provided the central justification for radicalizing the revolution as the decade proceeded. Beyond patriotism and rights, this essay also examines other competing discourses, especially those that challenged the church.

  • The French Revolution in Cultural History
    • Authors: Rosenfeld S.
      Pages: 555 - 565
      Abstract: A cultural approach to the study of the French Revolution took off in the 1980s as a result of the coincidence of new intellectual and political currents with celebrations of the Revolution’s bicentennial. By the turn of the new century, both the study of cultural phenomena (theatre, art and architecture, fashion, etc.) before, during, and after 1789 and an approach to social and political upheaval that stressed symbolism and the production of meaning had thoroughly remade mainstream understandings of this vital period in modern history. But a backlash was already underway. This article explores, first, the emergence and flourishing of the so-called cultural turn in French revolutionary studies between the 1980s and the present, including recent work on the study of race and gender, emotion, experience, violence, and conspiracy thinking. It then investigates the equally recent critiques that this approach has generated, especially among those interested in rethinking economic questions from a post- or modified Marxist perspective and/or decentering France in conceptions of modernity. The author hypothesizes that contemporary challenges to democracy in Europe, the United States, and elsewhere around the globe should, and will, lead to new questions both about what happened in France at the close of the eighteenth century and about how we should write about this moment of upheaval going forward.

  • Recent Historiography on the French Revolution and Gender
    • Authors: Desan S.
      Pages: 566 - 574
      Abstract: This piece reviews recent work on women, gender, and masculinity during the French revolutionary era. The older argument that women were enclosed in a private sphere and excluded from politics has given way to a more nuanced and wide-ranging exploration of diverse groups of women, including prostitutes, Parisian market women, cross-dressed female soldiers, female school-teachers, and enslaved women seeking emancipation through marrying soldiers, to name but a few groups. The latest scholarship recognizes limitations on women’s formal political power but focuses attention instead on women’s creativity and the malleability of gender identity, both in France and in the colonies. Much of this work arose in dialogue with au courant approaches in fields such as the histories of capitalism, sexuality, or the transatlantic world. Some scholars are taking part in a broader move toward theorizing the category of “citizenship” in wider and more nuanced ways. The piece also explores emerging research in the history of revolutionary masculinity. Scholars currently follow two countervailing tendencies that are not always in sync. A strong vein of new work investigates manhood within homosocial worlds, notably within the military, building on new approaches to the cultural history of war. A second, equally exciting strand within the scholarship analyzes manhood within the family—a move that makes sense as scholars have reacted against conceptualizing revolutionary gender dynamics in terms of separate spheres. The essay concludes with reflections on possible directions for future research.

  • The French Revolution’s Global Turn and Capitalism’s Spatial
    • Authors: Cheney P.

      Abstract: This essay first explores two contexts that have transformed the way that the international history of the French Revolution has been written over the last thirty years and which have recently provoked so many historians to take a global turn in their research and teaching at the expense of strictly national historiography. First, political relations between France and the Anglo-American world in the 1980s made the older, regnant model of Franco-American sister revolutions, inherited from R. R. Palmer, less plausible; this development sent historians looking for other models that would make the Revolution seem more immediately relevant to students and readers. Second, transformations in the global economy since the 1970s have put globalization on the agenda in a particularly striking manner. These same forces have transformed the economies within academia in ways that have favored teaching and publishing global history. This essay closes with some reflections on the difference between critical and naively enthusiastic approaches to the subject of globalization, and some recommendations on paths for future research on the French Revolution.

  • Political History of the French Revolution since 1989
    • Authors: Hanson P.
      Pages: 584 - 592
      Abstract: The French Revolution was a supremely political event. Indeed, it might be seen as marking the invention of modern politics. Broadly speaking, virtually any work of scholarship dealing with the French Revolution might be said to address revolutionary politics. This essay focuses more narrowly, however, on recent works that have explicitly addressed aspects of the political history of the Revolution, paying particular attention to three broad areas. The first is a growing body of work focusing on the French Revolution in the provinces, including important provincial cities, as well as village studies and regional studies. Some of this scholarship explores the dialectical relationship between political currents in Paris and developments in the provinces. Paris has hardly been ignored, however, and a number of important books in recent years have been devoted to important political events centered in the capital. These include works on the Night of August 4, the king’s flight to Varennes, and the massacre on the Champ de Mars. A spate of recent works on the origins and nature of the Terror promise to generate continuing debate on that topic. Finally, an array of historians has produced significant scholarship over the past twenty years on the period of the Directory, making it clear that the revolutionary dynamic did not end with the fall of Robespierre. Thus, the historiography of the Revolution since the bicentennial has broadened our understanding of revolutionary politics both geographically and chronologically.

  • Liberta by Trade: Negotiating the Terms of Unfree Labor in Gradual
           Abolition Buenos Aires (1820s–30s)
    • Authors: Alberto P.
      Pages: 619 - 651
      Abstract: This article offers a microhistory of the trajectories toward freedom of three generations of Afrodescendant women in a single household in early-nineteenth-century Buenos Aires (Argentina) during the gradual abolition of slavery. Their stories demonstrate the precariousness of freedom in a society often considered peripheral to geographies of American slavery and celebrated for its purportedly exceptional racelessness and class dynamism. But they also illuminate unremarked changes in the nature of slavery in postrevolutionary Buenos Aires and the spaces for maneuver leveraged by Afrodescendant women against a backdrop of political and economic transformation.The article pays special attention to the youngest of these individuals: Cayetana Warnes, a freeborn girl nonetheless repeatedly inscribed in notarial and probate records as a “liberta.” Cayetana’s story provides the basis for a new examination of “liberto/a,” the juridical category in-between slavery and freedom created by the 1813 Free Womb Law that conditionally freed the children of slave mothers after a term of service to their mother’s master. Though unusual and indeed illegal, the process by which the freeborn Cayetana became a fictional “liberta”—combining dynamics of contracted and coerced labor, spiritual kinship, gender, minority, tutelary servitude, and inheritance—exposes a range of more ordinary practices through which the racialized and coercive relations of slavery shaped Argentina’s emerging free labor regime, and vice versa. In these ambiguous spaces, Cayetana’s foremothers used their positions inside and outside the household to shape their own freedom and to negotiate, not disadvantageously, the terms of unfree labor across the generations.

  • Love and Justice: African American Women, Education, and Protest in
           Antebellum New England
    • Authors: Baumgartner K.
      Pages: 652 - 676
      Abstract: African Americans who pursued higher education in antebellum America often faced harassment and violence. Historians link the struggle over African American education with broader protest strategies, with African American men taking center stage. This essay enlarges the narrative on African American education and social protest by examining how young African American women students contested racism and white supremacy. Focusing on the controversy that surrounded the first high school for young African American women in New England, this essay argues that young African American women deployed an ethic of Christian love as a form of social protest. These women named racial prejudice as anti-Christian while also advocating for a just and loving nation inclusive of African Americans. Though white opposition eventually shuttered the school, this essay shows how African American women’s activism in the antebellum era is part of a longer genealogy of social protest.

  • Galician Immigrant Societies in Cuba: Local Identity, Diaspora Politics
           and Atlantic Mobilization (1870–1940)
    • Authors: Núñez Seixas X.
      Pages: 705 - 730
      Abstract: On the eve of World War I, Havana boasted the second largest urban community of Iberian Galicians in the world, after Buenos Aires. The size of its immigrant population made it a core of Galician politics and culture, as one of the main centers of the Galician diaspora community in Latin America, which amounted then to more than half a million persons between Argentina, Cuba, Uruguay, Brazil and the United States. Galicians left a deep imprint on modern Cuban society. This legacy could be seen in the persistence of ambiguous stereotypes about gallegos in Cuban popular theatre and cinematography until the 1950s. Numerous Galicians experienced fast-paced, upward social mobility during the first decades of the twentieth century. And the network of Galician local associations in Havana influenced the development of social mobilization in their country of origin during the first decades of the twentieth century. This was a multifaceted phenomenon, which found expression in dozens of initiatives that took place at the local level, linking Galician parishes in Europe with their “neighbors” now residing in Havana. The present essay looks at the diverse forms of interaction between the Galician community in Cuba and the sociopolitical movements that developed in Spain during the first half of the twentieth century.

  • Obfuscating the State Line: Land Conflict and State Formation on
           Oaxaca’s Frontier, 1856–1912
    • Authors: Newcomer D.
      Pages: 783 - 806
      Abstract: Officials in Oaxaca, Mexico, attempted to formalize the state’s borders in cooperation with the surrounding federations of Guerrero, Puebla, and Veracruz throughout the period 1856–1912. These efforts, which were aimed at rationalizing rural property to facilitate more effective government, in large part failed due to the persistence of ongoing, intervillage conflicts on the frontier that routinely worked to disrupt these campaigns. Drawing on cartographic and spatial history as well as classic works on state formation and resistance, this article explores how frontier residents simultaneously defended, created, and strategically transformed a vernacular, local landscape around the village of Zapotitlán Lagunas during this period. By manipulating the legal system to their own purposes, carrying out surveys, boundary markings, and occasionally land invasions—even by allegedly fabricating novel evidence of contradictory boundaries—border residents successfully obfuscated the state line’s whereabouts in defiance of state aims. Ultimately, these strategies frustrated the state and federal governments’ efforts to implement and enforce a permanent boundary and enabled residents to retain considerable local autonomy in the decades prior to the 1910 revolution.

  • Modernizing Military Patriarchy: Gender and State-Building in
           Postrevolutionary Mexico, 1920–1960
    • Authors: Rath T.
      Pages: 807 - 830
      Abstract: This article examines the relationship between gender, state-building, and military reform after the Mexican Revolution. It argues that military reform was one of the most visible and politically significant attempts by the new regime to dictate gender in the interests of national development and uphold sexual differences—that is, to modernize patriarchy. The article identifies the main phases in policies aimed at reshaping military habits, comportment, sociability, physique, and family life. Reform reflected broader trends in Mexican politics and social policy and faced abundant obstacles: the army was powerful, secretive, and riven by factional, generational, and ethnic divisions; officers and soldiers clung to their own ideas about work, family life, and leisure. Nevertheless, by the 1950s, military reform had successfully reshaped gender roles in military families, moderated officers’ public behavior, and produced a more disciplined and physically fitter soldiery. These changes helped to reshape the army’s public image in lasting ways.

  • Emotional Change: Romantic Love and the University in Postcolonial Egypt
    • Authors: Maftsir S.
      Pages: 831 - 859
      Abstract: This article uncovers the social and cultural dynamics that constructed the worth and meaning of romantic love as part of the hegemonic social order in postcolonial Egypt. In the two-and-a-half decades following the 1952 Revolution, Egyptian higher education underwent significant developments. The state initiated reforms that increased the number of students significantly. Additionally, the demographic composition of the student body became more diverse in terms of class and gender. These changes made university campuses a potential venue for finding one’s future spouse. However, as I will show, the desirability of marrying someone met through and during academic studies also indicates an emotional change toward a positive valuation of premarital love relationships.This emotional change, I will argue, was the result of the interplay between the demographic diversification of university campuses and values and practices of gender relations that dominant cultural producers and their audiences cultivated. Following Barbara Rosenwein, I consider this group of cultural producers that belonged to the prerevolutionary effendiyya as an emotional community. Their values regarding premarital love were grounded in the modernist discourses that idealized the nuclear family and perceived the intimacy between the married couple as essential for its stability. However, an analysis of the press, particularly advice columns, indicates an awareness of the ambiguities often generated by patriarchal concepts upheld by families. In producing the hegemony of premarital love, cultural producers incorporated, to some extent, these patriarchal perceptions.

  • “All of Us Are Unapprehended Felons”: Gay Liberation, the Black
           Panther Party, and Intercommunal Efforts Against Police Brutality in the
           Bay Area
    • Authors: Leighton J.
      Pages: 860 - 885
      Abstract: This article shows how the path of the gay liberation movement in the Bay Area was shaped by its relationship to the Black Panther Party (BPP). Previous scholarship has made frequent but brief mention of the connections between the two. However, the Black Panther Party had a greater depth of contact with and longer lasting influence on gay liberation than previously acknowledged, as an examination of movement activism in the Bay Area reveals. Perhaps the central issue of cooperation between gay liberation and the BPP—police brutality—has received little mention. Emerging scholarship is seeking to place LGBT activists in the larger movement against police brutality, and understanding their relationship to the Panthers will be crucial to doing so. While a great range of viewpoints on alliances between the Panthers and gay liberation could be observed in both camps in 1969–1970, many gay activists affirmed a united front even before Newton’s statement on gay liberation. Foremost among the reasons for working together was their shared identity as criminalized groups and their shared goal of combating police brutality. Gay liberationists modeled Panther approaches to dealing with police violence, both in armed self-defense and electoral politics, marking a clear break with homophile reformism. In the spring of 1971, both became more moderate and continued along the same path independently, with the issue of police brutality remaining central. This work encourages readers to consider in greater depth the intersection of gay liberation and Black Power, as well as social movements more generally.
