  • Editor’s Note
    • Authors: Hutner G.
      Abstract: This collection of papers on Pauline Hopkins’s writing inaugurates a new online feature of American Literary History, which we are calling the ALH Forum. After 30 years exclusively as a print journal, we are now committing to electronic publication a new series of essays, symposia, polemics, DH studies, exchanges, and more. In ways that resonate with our Online Review, ALH Forum pieces will take further advantage of the faster and readier means of distribution that e-publishing affords. Some of these essays, papers, reports, or polemics will be especially well served through website publication, with images or hyperlinks or some other feature. Some pieces may call for replies, responses that can be posted more promptly than print allows. And some have an urgency that we think demands more immediate circulation. This new range of content, appearing intermittently through the year, is tantamount to a fifth issue, so please regard these contributions as you would any of our print articles and essay-reviews. Readers who have signed up for OUP’s e-alerts will get timely notices when a new posting appears (so please register for that free service, if you haven’t already). If there’s an idea that you’d like to see included, please write to the Assistant Editor ( We welcome your suggestions.

  • Rethinking Pauline Hopkins: Plagiarism, Appropriation, and African
           American Cultural Production
    • Authors: Yarborough R; Pavletich J, Dworkin I, et al.
      Abstract: In four sections, this article presents literary and historical context, questions, and possibilities for understanding Pauline Elizabeth Hopkins’s strategies of textual appropriation.After meditating on Pauline Hopkins’s critical reception, Richard Yarborough gives a sensitive account of how we might make further sense of the writer’s “unacknowledged borrowings.” JoAnn Pavletich describes Hopkins’s extensive appropriations in two novels and historicizes late nineteenth-century notions of plagiarism. She argues that Hopkins’s writing practices would be understood as an illegitimate appropriation by most reading audiences of her era, even if that assessment can only be a point of departure for future studies. Ira Dworkin argues that in Of One Blood Hopkins makes a significant discursive intervention into colonial discourse through her appropriation of the life and writings of David Livingstone along with other less prominent sources. By working with these archives, Hopkins claims the authority to produce an innovative critique of existing forms of colonial knowledge about Africa. Lauren Dembowitz analyzes appropriations in Hopkins’s novel Hagar’s Daughter with particular attention to its manipulation of female stereotypes in turn-of-the century white women’s fiction. Dembowitz argues that Hopkins exposes the racist discourses undergirding sentimental models of womanhood, when she replaces one author’s presumably white “true woman” and “femme fatale” with mixed race women, thus demonstrating how African American signifyin(g) practices operate at the boundary between well-worn tropes and individual source texts.Early versions of these essays were presented at the 2016 American Literature Association panel, “‘Inspired Borrowings’ or Plagiarism' The Significance of Pauline Hopkins’s Textual Appropriations.”

  • What Was Black Nostalgia'
    • Authors: Schroeder J.
      Pages: 653 - 676
      Abstract: This essay describes the bifurcation of nostalgia over the course of its dispersion from Europe to the Americas from the 1790s to the 1860s. Nostalgia had previously been diagnosed in European ethnics who were displaced from home by compulsory service and were said to sadden and die due to a natal weakness to forced mobility. In the Americas, it was introduced into slave medicine and racialized, resulting in a new version of nostalgia that assigned to black bodies a different manner of dying—suicide—and a different cause of death—weakness to forced immobility, that is, captivity. Yet if this new biopolitical narrative captured the struggle between physicians and slaves over the significance of death (as a manifestation of freedom or illness), it only emerged in non-anglophone slave societies. In the anglophone New World, nostalgia was apparently never used as a diagnosis in slaves. Harriet Jacobs’s Incidents in the Life of a Slave Girl (1861) implies that this non-use was deliberate, arguing that American medicine is distinguished by its strategic neglect of the affective health of the black body. To attend to black nostalgia is to attend to the affective conditions of death as a radical act of freedom.

  • American Alternatives: Participatory Futures of Print from New York
           City’s Nineteenth-Century Spanish-Language Press
    • Authors: Kreitz K.
      Pages: 677 - 702
      Abstract: This essay situates the Spanish-language literary monthly La Revista Ilustrada de Nueva York, which was published in New York City in the 1880s and 1890s, at the forefront of a wave of experimentation with news and timely literary prose that surged during the same period. I argue that the encounter between New York–based writers of Latin American descent and the period’s new print and electric media technologies powered La Revista’s efforts to promote democracy in Latin America and to advance the region’s cultural status on the world stage. As New York’s popular English-language press banked its future on mass circulation enabled by those technologies and on a clear dividing line between producers and consumers, La Revista emphasized quality over quantity, ideas over entertainment, and, most importantly and experimentally for the time, reader participation over passive consumption. My analysis contributes to recent investigation of the origins of Latinx writing and to related efforts to unsettle the boundaries of US and Latin American literary history. It also sheds new light on José Martí’s “Nuestra América” (“Our America”), which first appeared in La Revista in January 1891—at the height of the magazine’s efforts to extend its own print and publishing capacity.

  • Crime Fiction and Black Criminality
    • Authors: Martin T.
      Pages: 703 - 729
      Abstract: This essay demonstrates how mid-twentieth-century crime fiction developed in response to midcentury discourses of racial criminality. In the 1950s, the myth of black criminality served to mediate anxieties about the emerging Civil Rights movement and rising rates of black unemployment. In this context, crime novelists found it increasingly difficult to ignore the link between the narration of crime and the criminalization of race. What did it mean to write about crime in the shadow of postwar US racial politics' I argue that this question helped define the distinctive midcentury genre of novels about criminals. While novelists like Patricia Highsmith used the backdrop of racial criminalization to write about the inner lives of white criminals, other writers, including Dorothy B. Hughes, Charles Willeford, and most importantly Richard Wright, focused directly on the narrative dilemmas posed by the black criminal protagonist. Through their literary attempts to uncouple race from crime, these writers show us how the genre of crime fiction became a key cultural form for grappling with the emergence of the US carceral state.

  • The Book Reads You: William Melvin Kelley’s Typographic Imagination
    • Authors: Nishikawa K.
      Pages: 730 - 755
      Abstract: The experimental novelist William Melvin Kelley has confounded critical efforts to situate his work within the aesthetic and political parameters of Black Arts. Though Kelley was a contemporary of the movement, he wrote fiction that undermined its belief that literature ought to serve as a mouthpiece for “the people.” Yet Kelley’s two late novels, dεm (1967) and Dunfords Travels Everywheres (1970), evinced the same qualities of performative textuality that Black Arts practitioners had advanced for their cause. By directing his publisher to follow his typescripts as closely as possible, Kelley created typographic experiments that made blackness a feature of readers’ engagement with the printed details of certain pages. Despite this convergence with Black Arts literary strategies, Kelley remained a maverick in the uses he identified for such experiments. Like other postmodern satirists of the era, he was a critic as much of racial indivisibility among blacks as he was of race’s invisibility to whites. In his late fiction, then, Kelley used typographic play to subvert not only racial but class assumptions about what a “black” voice ought to sound like.

  • The Novel and WikiLeaks: Transparency and the Social Life of Privacy
    • Authors: Selisker S.
      Pages: 756 - 776
      Abstract: This essay proposes a shift away from thinking about privacy, in fiction and the world, as concerned with an individual’s interior, toward thinking about it as something that inheres in interpersonal and group interactions. This view of privacy becomes especially visible as both a formal feature and a thematic concern in recent novels that take up WikiLeaks as a topic. These novels—Dave Eggers’s The Circle (2013) and Jonathan Franzen’s Purity (2015)—make revealing attempts to square the competing ideals of governmental transparency and individual privacy. By borrowing from social network analysis, and attending to the ways that these authors describe information flow between characters, this essay describes privacy as a facet of our social and information networks.

  • Liberalism and the Early American Novel
    • Authors: Shapiro S.
      Pages: 777 - 787
      Abstract: The early American novel has traditionally not received as much attention as contemporaneous writing in England and Europe. One reason for this relative lack of attention has been the continuing strength of mid-century claims that the models and familiar narrative for novel studies did not function well for an exceptional and purportedly classless America. Two recent studies, Joe Shapiro’s The Illiberal Imagination: Class and the Rise of the U.S. Novel (2017) and Nancy Armstrong and Leonard Tennenhouse’s Novels in the Time of Democratic Writing: The American Example (2018) challenge this prior common sense by providing new approaches and methods to the long fiction written in the US in the late eighteenth and early nineteenth century. Shapiro argues that early American novels were preoccupied by questions of class differences, and that different generic modes were chosen to cover a spectrum of positions that sought to downplay democratic urges by the labouring class. Armstrong and Tennenhouse use network theory to claim, conversely, that the early American novel’s preferred themes were meant to enable a democracy that could not occur in Great Britain. The divergent claims of these two monographs establish a new debate over how American studies should consider the antebellum novel.

  • Attention Spans
    • Authors: Duquette E.
      Pages: 788 - 798
      Abstract: A renewed focus on attention, as well as the writings of Henry David Thoreau, unites recent books by Branka Arsić and Theo Davis. Arguing that these books develop ideas articulated by Sharon Cameron, Duquette traces the surprising commonalities and marked differences of their shared interest in attention.

  • Debunking Dehumanization
    • Authors: DeLombard J.
      Pages: 799 - 810
      Abstract: This essay-review questions the persistent critical tendency to view racism, and slavery in particular, as a matter of dehumanization rather than degradation. This tendency, I suggest, arises from the pervasive identification of dignity with humanity in the wake of World War II. Throughout the long nineteenth century, however, Americans understood both dignity and slavery primarily in terms of status. Slavery was an assault on black dignity that sought to exploit rather than deny a recognized black humanity.

  • Queer Sociality After the Antisocial Thesis
    • Authors: Kahan B.
      Pages: 811 - 819
      Abstract: This essay-review maps the central contours and critiques of what is known in US-based sexuality studies as “the antisocial thesis.” This thesis, broadly construed, argues that all social life and sociality—encompassing the good life, happiness, and citizenship—is organized by heterosexuality and reproductive futurism (emblematized by the figure of the child) and constitutively excludes queerness. I argue that two recent books, Samuel Steward and the Pursuit of the Erotic: Sexuality, Literature, Archives (2017) and Prince of Tricksters: The Incredible True Story of Netley Lucas, Gentleman Crook (2016) provide new strategies to pursue or ways forward in relation to the antisocial thesis’s account of the social.

  • Archives of Ecocatastrophe; or, Vulnerable Reading Practices in the
    • Authors: Merola N.
      Pages: 820 - 835
      Abstract: This essay-review considers four recent monographs in the environmental humanities—Kate Rigby’s Dancing with Disaster: Environmental Histories, Narratives, and Ethics for Perilous Times (2015); Ursula Heise’s Imagining Extinction: The Cultural Meanings of Endangered Species (2016); Molly Wallace’s Risk Criticism: Precautionary Reading in an Age of Environmental Uncertainty (2016); and Stacy Alaimo’s Exposed: Environmental Politics and Pleasures in Posthuman Times (2016)—for the ways they enact and affirm the importance of literary critical practice in an era of ecosocial imperilment. The essay highlights the narrative character of ecocatastrophe; identifies the onto-ethico-epistemological commitments of these monographs; underlines the partial, provisional, and vulnerable nature of criticism itself; and emphasizes the importance of constructing—in community with other humans and nonhumans—new naturecultures, stories that emerge from slow, attentive reading practices.

  • Four Theses on Economic Totality
    • Authors: Huehls M.
      Pages: 836 - 847
      Abstract: How should scholars of contemporary culture account for economic totality—that is, for the fully capitalist horizon that defines daily existence' In this review of three monographs—Eva Cherniavsky’s Neocitizenship: Political Culture after Democracy (2017), Annie McClanahan’s Dead Pledges: Debt, Crisis, and Twenty-First-Century Culture (2017), and Alison Shonkwiler’s The Financial Imaginary: Economic Mystification and the Limits of Realist Fiction (2017), each of which analyzes the politics of contemporary cultural output in light of capitalism’s apparent inescapability—I offer four implications economic totality has for scholars today. First, economic totality makes geographical distinctions increasingly irrelevant for contemporary cultural analysis. Second, it requires a new understanding of history that accepts history’s erasure. Third, it renders dialectical thinking nearly obsolete. Fourth, it suggests that postcritical scholarship is a historical inevitability, not a passing academic trend. Taken together, these three monographs and the implications they have for scholars of contemporary culture reveal the difficult task we face working within the capitalist horizon.
