  • Economics and American Literary Studies in the New Gilded Age, or Why
           Study the History of Bad Predictions and Worse Rationalizations'
    • Authors: Seybold M.
      Pages: 587 - 595
      Abstract: AbstractThis introduction to the special issue on Economics and American Literary Studies in The New Gilded Age traces an underexplored history of dissent within the discipline of economics through presidential addresses to the American Economic Association and writings by John Maynard Keynes. It acknowledges the “vexed history” of interdisciplinary engagement between economists and literature scholars, including a recent, halfhearted call for “narrative economics” from 2013 Nobel Laureate Robert Shiller. Seybold suggests that new brands of econo-literary criticism have risen to promise in the last decade and that contributors to this special issue demonstrate the importance of historicism to this subfield, despite its apparent presentist tendencies.

  • Pudding Economics: Franklin’s “The Way to Wealth” and
           the Transactional Self
    • Authors: Horwitz H.
      Pages: 596 - 618
      Abstract: AbstractBenjamin Franklin’s preface to the 1758 edition of Poor Richard’s Almanack, usually titled “The Way to Wealth,” is generally regarded as a sermon on frugality. The very form of the 1758 Preface, with Richard Saunders’s voice framing Father Abraham’s “Harangue,” ironizes Father Abraham’s doctrine of frugality. The effect of this literary performance is to illustrate or even stimulate desire for social interaction that is not frugal in any strict sense, but rather manifests an impulse to expand intercourse. The 1758 preface and Franklin’s extensive writings on economics present an expansive vision of capital formation. Commerce must grow incessantly, not for the accumulation of capital per se but for the prospect of endless growth, to spur and sustain what Adam Smith called “the progressive state.” Franklin’s economic writings delineate the constitution of the subject populating progressive society. Identity and ultimately the character of society are fabricated through ongoing, visible, and expanding transactions. Expansive or progressive identity is not illusory, but constitutive. Self and society must be creditable. This conceptualization was central to economic policy-making in the new nation; it straddles neoliberal critiques of subjectification in late capitalism.

  • Romanticism of Numbers: Hamilton, Jefferson, and the Sublime
    • Authors: Hewitt E.
      Pages: 619 - 638
      Abstract: AbstractThis essay analyzes the narrative elements of the partisan dispute concerning Hamilton’s fiscal proposals in the first years of the 1790s. Focusing especially on a sequence of letters from the summer of 1792 between Alexander Hamilton, George Washington, and Thomas Jefferson, it proposes that we should study Hamilton’s response to his opponents as an aesthetic argument. More specifically, Hamilton crafts the nation’s economic policy by conceiving of the sublimity of capital and finance, and I propose we should read Hamilton’s writing with an eye toward Immanuel Kant’s theory of the sublime. The essay also situates Hamilton in relation to other theorists of the economic sublime, including Fredric Jameson, François Lyotard, and Max Weber.

  • Imagining Equality in a Gilded Age: Edward Bellamy’s Radical Utopian
           Critique of Progressivism
    • Authors: Cadle N.
      Pages: 639 - 660
      Abstract: AbstractEquality (1897), Edward Bellamy’s sequel to his bestseller Looking Backward (1888), has received significantly less critical attention than its predecessor has, with scholars often dismissing it as a minor extension or revision of the author’s utopian vision. Situating Bellamy’s sequel alongside his growing disenchantment with the pace of Progressive reform, this essay argues that Equality radically reframes Bellamy’s utopian project as an extended critique of the economic inequalities of capitalism and the putatively democratic processes that sustain those inequalities. Recovering the full extent of Bellamy’s radicalism during the Gilded Age and the rise of Progressivism offers twenty-first-century readers the opportunity to rethink the range of possible responses to present-day economic inequality.

  • The Economic Humanities and the History of Financial Advice
    • Authors: Crosthwaite P; Knight P, Marsh N.
      Pages: 661 - 686
      Abstract: AbstractThis article charts the emerging interdisciplinary field of the Economic Humanities, and highlights a recent research project on the history of US financial advice writing as an example of what this field might look like in practice. We begin by arguing that the Economic Humanities distinguishes itself from the New Economic Criticism that flourished in the 1990s by virtue of a broadened methodological scope, made possible by greater interaction with various economically oriented branches of the social sciences. We then discuss our History of Financial Advice project as one example of what the Economic Humanities might do, highlighting three especially significant moments in the development of this genre of US writing: the decades around the turn of the twentieth century, either side of the Wall Street Crash of 1929, and the era following the emergence of a canonical body of financial theory in the early 1970s. Finally, in a brief conclusion we point to key areas in which the Economic Humanities has potential to do important critical work in the coming years.

  • Money Mazes, Media Machines, and Banana Republic Realisms
    • Authors: Townsend S.
      Pages: 687 - 714
      Abstract: AbstractThis article resurrects the literary source of the phrase banana republic: O. Henry’s only novel, Cabbages and Kings (1904), which was inspired by his experiences in Honduras after fleeing from charges of embezzlement. Set in a fictitious country called Anchuria, the narrative grew out of two short stories titled “Money Maze” and “The Phonograph and the Graft.” O. Henry is seldom considered in discussions of US realism at the turn of the twentieth century; nevertheless, I argue that Cabbages and Kings parodically deploys a mode of “banana republic realism” that sheds light on the role of media technologies in the processes of imperial expansion and financialization. Given Lisa Gitelman’s claim that media are “integral to a sense of what representation itself is,” how do the ties between media and money impinge on the claims of realism—especially in enclave economies where the same corporation cultivating the export commodity might also control currency and communication technologies' With an eye to debates about realism in our own era of cryptocurrencies and algorithmic trading, the article points to the banana republic as a privileged site for understanding what happens to realist representation at moments when media become increasingly integral to the economy.

  • Du Bois, Dirt Determinism, and the Reconstruction of Global Value
    • Authors: Adams K.
      Pages: 715 - 740
      Abstract: AbstractW. E. B. Du Bois wrote extensively about African-American cotton growers and the Southern Black Belt, beginning with the sociological studies he conducted while at Atlanta University. Over time, his approach to these subjects became increasingly literary and experimental. He made the region—and specifically its dirt—a medium for analyzing the history and dynamics of racial capitalism, and for imagining forms of value not grounded in the violent extraction and mystification of black labor power. In doing so Du Bois countered the blame narrative developed by white southerners like Alfred Holt Stone, who attributed soil exhaustion and economic stagnation to the “monstrocity” of self-possessed black labor. He dismantles racist figures of black encumbrance, nomadism, and decay in which antebellum theories of climate determinism were retooled to promote new forms of racial exploitation. This essay analyzes Du Bois’s dirt poetics in The Souls of Black Folk (1903) and The Quest of the Silver Fleece (1911). Drawing from Ernesto Laclau’s work on the rhetoricity of Marxist social movements, it examines the revolutionary forms of radical contingency that Du Bois discovers at the intersection of linguistic and economic value.

  • Black Women’s Geographies and the Afterlives of the Sugar Plantation
    • Authors: McInnis J.
      Pages: 741 - 774
      Abstract: AbstractThis essay examines how several contemporary black women artists—Attica Locke, Natalie Baszile, Beyoncé, Ava DuVernay, and Kara Walker—interrogate the afterlives of the sugar plantation in present day literature, performance, and visual art. Drawing on Katherine McKittrick’s conceptualization of “black women’s geographies,” I show how these artists turn to the landscape and built environment of the sugar plantation and factory to restore black women and the US South to the global history of sugar. Part one, “Plantation Pasts,” examines Locke’s 2012 novel, The Cutting Season, alongside Kara Walker’s 2014 installation, A Subtlety, or the Marvelous Sugar Baby, as critiques of the sugar plantation’s ongoing economic viability through plantation tourism and modern agribusiness. By foregrounding a “logic of perishability” that insists on the plantation’s dissolution and demise, Locke and Walker interrogate these sugar plantation afterlives to exhume, expose, and ultimately revise buried histories of racial dispossession and consumption in the US and global sugar industries. Part two, “Plantation Futures,” examines how Natalie Baszile’s 2014 novel, Queen Sugar, its television adaptation created by Ava DuVernay, and several of Beyoncé’s music videos—“Déjà Vu” (2006), “Formation” (2016), and the visual album Lemonade (2016)—“return” to Louisiana’s sugar plantation geographies to confront the violent histories of slavery and Jim Crow and to reconcile African Americans’ contentious relationship to land, agriculture, and contemporary southern identity in the post-Civil Rights era. Given the limits of colonial and state archives of slavery, I argue that these artists reestablish the landscape and architecture of the sugar plantation and factory as counter-archives, wherein the slave cabin, big house, refinery, and cane fields are figured as contested sites of official history and memory. In doing so, they “respatialize” hegemonic geographies, exposing and indicting the persisting legacies of racial-sexual dispossession and violence, on one hand, and positing embodied practices of pleasure, mourning, and collectivity as modes of “reterritorialization” on the other, imagining a new relationship to land, agriculture, and the earth.

  • Economics, Race, and the Postwar US Novel: A Quantitative Literary History
    • Authors: Sinykin D; So R, Young J.
      Pages: 775 - 804
      Abstract: AbstractHow has the language of economics, as codified by economics as a discipline, entered the US novel in the postwar period' Have economists influenced novelists at the level of language, and if so, how and how much' We begin with the belief, inferred from current scholarship on economics and culture, but never before empirically tested, that economic language became more prevalent around 1980, especially among white men—a belief that we strive to complicate and give nuance. Readers may detect an irony in the relationship between our method and case study. No academic discipline has valorized the use of quantification for social analysis more than economics. As a discipline, its language has become saturated with the language of modeling. Cultural and literary critics have long argued that economics has even harmed society by creating false accounts of how humans behave and think. Can we take their tools, however, and make them ours as a way to critique economics itself'

  • Commentary: Economics and American Literary Studies in the New Gilded Age
    • Authors: Eby C.
      Pages: 805 - 817
      Abstract: AbstractThe marginalization of the humanities, while depressing, has at least provoked literary scholars into rethinking what they do and foregrounding the relevance of their research. The spike of interest in the economic humanities illustrates one path for making literary study more legible. To that end, several trends emerge in recent economic-themed literary scholarship. One trend of establishing the salience of humanistic scholarship proceeds by locating the origins of present concerns, such as the corporate takeover of democracy, in the past. While that approach is exciting and engaging, care must be taken not to flatten out differences between historical periods. A second salutary trend of making the humanities more intelligible develops interventionist and activist modes of scholarship—for instance, in the interest of making the economy more equitable, and by suggesting alternatives to current impasses. Through such approaches, the economic humanities can help demystify the epistemology of capitalism, the mental barrier determining what is and is not thinkable.

  • Commentary: It’s the economy, stupid: On the Costs of Marginalizing
           the Aesthetic
    • Authors: Finch L.
      Pages: 818 - 828
      Abstract: AbstractThis essay is a response to the pieces collected for the special issue of American Literary History on economics and literature, with a particular focus on those dealing with the twentieth and twenty-first centuries. It makes two related arguments: first, that studies of the North American economy must center analyses of racial capitalism and settler colonialism as an inherent part of their work and not as an optional add-on. Secondly, I argue that the field of economics and literature loses much of its anti-capitalist potential when it allows the parameters of the debate to be set by the economy; that is, taking the terms of analysis, the texts for analysis, the methods of analysis, and suppositions about who can be read as an economic actor and what is an economic action from how they are defined by the economy precludes a disruption of these premises. I conclude by arguing for the importance of the aesthetic for reimaging the terms of the debate and offering a brief biography of writing on racial capitalism and settler colonialism that is already doing this work.

  • Commentary: Necromance
    • Authors: Hunt I.
      Pages: 829 - 839
      Abstract: AbstractThis article reconsiders the recent turn in political theory to love as a countercapital affect, helping us endure when hope has lost its salience. The article offers the concept of “necromance” to attend to the ways the popular configuration of love as life-giving often overlooks how in the history of slavery and liberal empire love operates as life-taking. Distinct from necromancy, necromance is not a process of reviving the dead but of bringing subjects in ever closer proximity to the dead. Grounded in a reading of W. E. B. Du Bois’s romantic novel The Quest of the Silver Fleece (1911), particularly its vision of a cooperative economy and its response to the evolving meaning of love in American culture at the end of the nineteenth century, necromance is both a structure of feeling and a form of writing. As a resource for activism indebted to the creative powers of melancholic attachments, necromance contests the common conception that in order for grievances to become social movements or collective insurgencies they must be framed to create feelings of outrage, not of grief. By working inside existing conditions of irrevocable loss, necromantic love registers the feeling that the revolution is already here.

  • Everything Is Not Neoliberalism
    • Authors: Robbins B.
      Pages: 840 - 849
      Abstract: AbstractHas the market really taken over every aspect of human life, as neoliberalism purports to desire and as the rest of us sometimes fear' Have culture and politics and sexuality been subdued to its inexorable and inhuman logic' In some ways it is convenient to think so. But the argument falls apart when put to the test. Neoliberalism is best understood, and resisted, if considered a more partial and vulnerable movement in a class war.

  • Survivalism and Other Class Fantasies
    • Authors: Shonkwiler A.
      Pages: 850 - 859
      Abstract: The subjective demands of crisis capitalism are addressed by three books on the literature and culture of the late twentieth and early twenty-first centuries. These texts shed light on the possibilities and limits of materialist critique in holding various forms of ruthless, abstracted, and injurious capitalism to account. Measuring the uneven development of neoliberal subjectivities across different groups and conditions invites readers to theorize the class dimensions embedded in aesthetic narratives. An analysis of the “microeconomic mode” of contemporary subjectivity, which redefines the traditional liberal political subject to a narrowly survivalist subject of “life-interest,” offers a way of understanding how populations become increasingly sortable into more- and less-disposable groups. A study of deindustrialization literature, focused on the working-class experience, considers the cultural persistence of the blue-collar figure in a service and knowledge economy. A study of finance fictions argues that contemporary capitalism fits a new, psychotic paradigm and requires theorizing a new financial ontology of the present.

  • Contemporary Poetry and Capitalism
    • Authors: Hunter W.
      Pages: 860 - 869
      Abstract: AbstractThe field of poetry and poetics has been revitalized by a decade and a half of close attention to many of its enduring premises and assumptions. Three new books by Jasper Bernes, Margaret Ronda, and Heather Milne show how US poetry from 1945 to the present responds to the changing conditions of historical capitalism. Departing from older periodizing narratives anchored in the shift from modernism to postmodernism, these books uncover the poetic histories that emerge in tandem with changes in economic structures and political regimes.

  • The Cultural Economies of Digital Books
    • Authors: Wilkens M.
      Pages: 870 - 879
      Abstract: AbstractAn examination of the possible relations between literature and the digital. Each of three recent books, including Zara Dinnen’s The Digital Banal (2018), Andrew Piper’s Enumerations (2018), and Joel Waldfogel’s Digital Renaissance (2018), addresses a distinct aspect of the problem. Dinnen’s study considers the representational effects of social media on literary realism. Waldfogel traces the consequences of digital production and distribution on the culture industries. And Piper demonstrates the evidentiary value of quantitative analysis of literary collections. All three are persuasive within their domains, but none offers the comprehensive theory of the digital that was once the presumptive end of the study of digital books. The article suggests that the implicit renunciation of such a theory in recent work represents a new phase in the investigation of digital literature.
