    • Authors: Augst T.
      First page: 219
      Abstract: <span class="paragraphSection">Scholarship across the humanities is being radically and rapidly transformed through digital access to archival sources. Through the development of online scholarly editions, digital archives such as the Walt Whitman Archive and online repositories such as HathiTrust Digital Library, among many others, a wealth of archival data—textual and graphic, quantitative and qualitative—have become electronically available. With this new digital wealth of materials for humanities scholarship has come new ways of looking at the archival record, new ways of interpreting historical information, and new standards for accounting its value and authority as knowledge.</span>

  • New World: The Impact of Digitization on the Study of Slavery
    • Authors: Rusert B.
      First page: 267
      Abstract: <span class="paragraphSection">Last year, an interactive animation of the Atlantic slave trade went viral.1<sup>1</sup> Provocatively titled “The Atlantic Slave Trade in Two Minutes,” the interactive map first appeared as part of <span style="font-style:italic;">Slate</span>’s online course “The History of American Slavery,” relying on the voyages cataloged in the <span style="font-style:italic;">Trans-Atlantic Slave Trade Database</span> to visualize the crossing of 15,790 slave ships from Africa to the New World from 1545 to 1860. The visualization is a powerful one. <span style="font-style:italic;">Slate</span> reported that it was the fourth most shared story on its site in 2015 (Hassler). It’s teachable; it travels easily. But beyond the consensus regarding the power and pedagogical usefulness of this animated map, “The Atlantic Slave Trade in Two Minutes” raises important questions about the place of such digital projects in the study of slavery itself.</span>

  • Networked Literary History and the Bohemians of Antebellum New York
    • Authors: Whitley E.
      First page: 287
      Abstract: <span class="paragraphSection">The bohemians of antebellum New York are a problem for US literary history. Apart from their association with Walt Whitman (who found friends, supporters, and lovers among them), the writers and artists who gathered at Charles Pfaff’s beer cellar have rarely found purchase in anthologies, syllabi, scholarly works, or any of the other markers of having achieved a reliable presence in literary history.1<sup>1</sup> Rather than spend the following pages making a case for why they should be included in histories of US literature, I turn to how Whitman and the bohemians productively reframe one of our most resilient models for literary history: namely, the impulse to structure authors, texts, and aesthetic practices into stories of progressive change over time. As opposed to narratives of literary history that move in what Jordan Alexander Stein calls the “regular and uninterrupted sequence” of one genre-defining (or genre-breaking) innovation after another (859), the bonds that the bohemians forged in the beer halls and boardinghouses of midcentury Manhattan offer a networked approach to literary history. Networks invite attention to the limbs and offshoots that might otherwise be pruned from literary histories concerned with smooth and continuous progress over time, particularly when progress is defined by the appearance of a singularly unique voice (such as Whitman’s) or a transformative work of literature (such as <span style="font-style:italic;">Leaves of Grass</span> [1855–92]) that begets a line of descendants through to the present.2<sup>2</sup> Networks provide a mechanism for keeping track of lateral movements in history, moments when authors and texts seem to trail off into dead ends or follow paths with no clear terminus in the present.

  • Gilman’s Paperwork: Authorship, Accounting, and Archival Memory
    • Authors: Carey C.
      First page: 307
      Abstract: <span class="paragraphSection">In 2010, the Schlesinger Library on the History of Women in America announced a plan to digitize their entire collection of Charlotte Perkins Gilman’s papers. Over the next five years, 34 boxes, 354 folders, and 77 volumes were converted into 34,881 digital images.1<sup>1</sup> Now organized and searchable by tags, Gilman’s paperwork finds itself deconstructed by the calculating memory of digital machines, a discourse network whose archival accounting resists the humanities’ preference for textual and narrative approaches to history. As Wolfgang Ernst explains, digital archives liberate historical objects from the burden of narrative by rematerializing the archive’s calculating function: “The archive does not tell stories; only secondary narratives give meaningful coherence to its discontinuous elements… In its very discreteness the archive mirrors the operative level of the present, calculating rather than telling” (“The Archive” 48).2<sup>2</sup> Archives remind us that an archaeological sense of the past begins with the monumentality of discrete data, not the continuity of textual patterns produced by narrative. Accounting for archival memory thus demands a new method of telling and counting <div class="boxedTextSection">Accounting for archival memory thus demands a new method of telling and counting history, one that distinguishes the “discontinuous elements” that resist narrative, push back against its textual bias, and calculate historical memory on a register that precedes hermeneutic interpretation.</div>history, one that distinguishes the “discontinuous elements” that resist narrative, push back against its textual bias, and calculate historical memory on a register that precedes hermeneutic interpretation.</span>

  • Bibliographic Enterprise and the Digital Age: Charles Evans and the Making
           of Early American Literature
    • Authors: O’Hagan Hardy M.
      First page: 331
      Abstract: <span class="paragraphSection">At the end of the nineteenth century, Charles Evans set out to compile the first comprehensive bibliography of printed texts up to 1820 in what would become the US. A librarian who grew up around American books, Evans had a love for such artifacts of early national history that carried him through this arduous task, as did his drive to enumerate these imprints into a single set of volumes. In a speech delivered in October 1921 at the American Antiquarian Society’s (AAS) annual meeting, Evans described in vivid detail his affective relationship to his work, and in so doing, situated himself in the mores that brought this group of men together. Specifically, he identified himself with antiquarianism, a lineage of practice imported from England but made local by the nation’s first collectors of literature printed in the US. His bibliographic work drew on a tradition dating back to the nation’s founding while also setting the course for the ways in which this corpus would make itself available to the next century of students and scholars of the period.</span>

  • Remediating the Latin@ Sixties
    • Authors: Noel U.
      First page: 374
      Abstract: <span class="paragraphSection">The Chicano and Puerto Rican movements of the 1960s and 1970s were explicitly antitechnocratic, yet their political and creative energies were deployed across a range of media, often in ways that nuanced or even challenged their cultural nationalist politics. A poem such as Rodolfo “Corky” Gonzales’s “I am Joaquín” (1967), the watershed epic of the Chicano Movement, can be read not only in its various print, performance, and musical iterations but also in the context of Luis Valdez and El Teatro Campesino’s (Farmworkers’ Theater) 1969 film adaptation of it (Noriega). Such a reading would foreground the poem’s investment in a cultural politics of remediation, including how the poem itself remediates the popular oral form of the <span style="font-style:italic;">corrido</span>.1<sup>1</sup></span>

  • Archival Performances: Collaborative Theater and Approaches to Indigenous
    • Authors: Cruz D.
      First page: 396
      Abstract: <span class="paragraphSection">In May 2014, the Toronto-based collaborative UnSpun Theatre premiered a new play at the Harbourfront Centre, a performing arts venue situated in the heart of the city’s waterfront district. <span style="font-style:italic;">The Speedy</span> was the result of a competition for new drama designed to commemorate the center’s fortieth anniversary.1<sup>1</sup> In her opening monologue, Shira Leuchter (codirector of UnSpun and one of the play’s four performers) referred to the occasion to reconsider the city’s history. She reminded the audience that the area surrounding the center was once covered by water. She recalled the days when Toronto was known as York, when the history of North America was in flux and undetermined, and when the settlement (in 1804, a population of 432) might have been the capital of what was then the British colony of Upper Canada. After establishing this connection to Toronto’s submerged past, she introduced another disremembered story that centered on conflict between Indigenous peoples and settler colonials. In 1804, the H.M.S. <span style="font-style:italic;">Speedy</span> sank just off the coast of Lake Ontario during a storm. In transit from York to the newly constructed courthouse in Newcastle, the ship carried an accused person on his way to judgment: Ogetonicut, an Ojibwe man who had been charged for killing John Sharpe, a white fur trader. No one survived the shipwreck.</span>

  • The Continuing Circulations of New England’s Tribal Newsletters
    • Authors: Senier S.
      First page: 418
      Abstract: <span class="paragraphSection">Because they tell stories and include genres we simply don’t find in other places, Native American periodicals are a vital source of literary history. There are hundreds of them, many identified in Daniel Littlefield and James Parins’s three-volume reference <span style="font-style:italic;">American Indian and Alaska Native Newspapers and Periodicals</span> (1986). Yet most of these remarkable publications remain inaccessible and unknown outside the communities that produced them. Only seven are included, to date, in the Library of Congress’s digital newspaper project, <span style="font-style:italic;">Chronicling America</span>. Fewer still have been the subjects of any scholarly research. The <span style="font-style:italic;">Cherokee Phoenix</span> (1828–1834) has received some attention as the “first” Indian newspaper, as have the student papers published by the notorious Carlisle boarding school during the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries. Periodical literature, however, is a much richer archive than scholars have fully appreciated.1<sup>1</sup></span>

  • Archives and the Spirit of American Literary History
    • Authors: Cohen M.
      First page: 438
      Abstract: <span class="paragraphSection">American literature has been busy in the archives lately. There are new discoveries, like Austin Reed’s <span style="font-style:italic;">The Life and Adventures of a Haunted Convict</span> (1858), the earliest known African American prison memoir, Walt Whitman’s “Manly Health and Training” series, and the many collections at <span style="font-style:italic;">WikiLeaks</span>. There are texts that were known to have existed but have only recently been unveiled or found, from the FBI’s surveillance records for US writers to the first book of Frances Ellen Watkins (Harper)’s poetry, <span style="font-style:italic;">Forest Leaves</span>. These documents have been unearthed by means old and new, but many have come to light as a result of the past decade’s surge of digital scanning, encoding, and cataloging. Many more will also arrive soon, heralding revisions in canons, new understandings of genres, and emerging, competing narratives of US literary history.</span>
