  • Editor's Note
    • Abstract: Since our editorial team began our work in 2014, we were aware of the noticeable absence of early Americanist scholarship in the pages of this journal. The sentiment that American Quarterly was not a hospitable venue for early Americanist work had been widely shared for decades. Although neither current nor previous editorial boards of the journal ever intended to marginalize scholarship on the earlier periods, it was undeniable that a negative cycle had long been at work: because early Americanists believed that the journal was not interested in their work, they tended not to submit to American Quarterly; the journal can only publish works that are submitted, hence relatively few early Americanist works were ...

  • Introduction: Technologies of Life and Architectures of Death in Early
           America
    • Abstract: Theories of biopolitics have had little to say about early America. Biopolitics as a framework has become essential for analyzing oppressive power structures in Black studies, Asian American studies, gender and sexuality studies, and queer theory, among other fields.1 However, biopolitics has not yet been well elaborated in relation to the development of slavery, capitalism, empire, and settler colonialism, arguably the structuring institutions of modernity both in the United States and in the Americas as a whole. This absence has limited the development of theories of biopolitics, on the one hand, and analyses of the history of power in early American studies, on the other. Yet we find ourselves in a moment of an ... Read More

  • Zombie Biopolitics
    • Abstract: The zombie is first and foremost an expression of Haitianness.… the zombie exists, by definition, in a state that as closely resembles the movement of life as it does the immobility of death.The plantation thesis uncovers the interlocking workings of modernity and blackness, which culminate in long-standing, uneven racial geographies while also centralizing that the idea of the plantation is migratory.… With this, differential modes of survival emerge—creolization, the blues, maroonage, revolution, and more—revealing that the plantation, in both slave and postslave context, must be understood alongside complex negotiations of time, space, and terror.In the late 1640s Colonel Walrond, a plantation owner in the ...

  • Witch Hunts and Census Conflicts: Becoming a Population in Colonial
           Massachusetts
    • Abstract: Time and again during the seventeenth century, colonial leaders in Massachusetts refused to produce a single official census to send to the Crown even as they repeatedly crafted and recrafted remarkably sophisticated legislation related to counting people. Censuses were crucial to the mercantilist vision of connecting the empire through bookkeeping, and they had immediate practical uses for calculating taxation as well. Yet no New England colony completed a census for royal authorities before 1708, though Barbados in 1680 had already submitted what was by far the most extensive seventeenth-century Anglo-colonial census. In the midst of all the stalling and evasion coming from Massachusetts, two seemingly unrelated ... Read More

  • Fugitive Performance: Negotiating Biopower and the Law in US Chattel
           Slavery
    • Abstract: This fugitive movement is stolen life, and its relation to law is reducible neither to simple interdiction nor bare transgression.The Amistad Research Center in New Orleans houses a nineteenth-century court case concerning the question of slavery, states' rights, fugitivity, and freedom. This 1810 trial, to my knowledge, has not yet received scholarly attention. The case, Margaret Aurelia Porter v. Reuben Reynolds (1810–12), has not made its way past the archival records into scholarship most likely because the file is incomplete—the outcome in the case remains unknown to us today.1 But this archival fragment still has a lot to tell us despite, or indeed because of, its missing court ruling: the court file has the ...

  • Scenes of Speculation: Harriet Jacobs and the Biopolitics of Human Capital
    • Abstract: Recounting the "incident" that launches her flight from captivity in her 1861 book Incidents in the Life of a Slave Girl, Harriet Jacobs expresses a dire need to escape two demons: first, Dr. Flint, the owner whom she calls her "tyrant," and second, the imminence of her own sexual maturity, which he wishes to foist on her as a weapon of terror. In the face of encroaching pressure from her master and her future, Jacobs draws on a prognostic power both unsuspected and unbidden.1 Having found that working against the clock teaches one to know ahead of time, she makes a plan:The influences of slavery had the same effect on me that they had on other young girls; they had made me prematurely knowing, concerning the ...

  • Robert Montgomery Bird's Neurodiversity Hypothesis
    • Abstract: Neurodiversity, it turns out, is a very old idea. While the term itself was first coined in the late 1990s by Judy Singer to name the notion that autism and other cognitive conditions are not diseases but "naturally occurring variations,"1 its roots stretch back to debates in the early nineteenth century around the degree to which individuals were immutably, innately different from one another, and whether there is a material explanation for thought and consciousness. The decades between 1780 and 1860 saw a proliferation of scientific fields that investigated the material origins of mental difference and in turn underwrote the term diversity, a direct precursor to the neurodiversity of today. According to the ... Read More

  • Breeding Mixed-Race Women for Profit and Pleasure
    • Abstract: In the archives of the Library Company of Philadelphia, there is a small photograph labeled "Cordelia Sanders" that shows a quiet-faced woman, her hand just grazing her chin.1 The portrait, encased in a small gold frame, does not at first glance appear to be a significant historical artifact. But it is, in fact, a remarkable item. For this portrait of Cordelia Sanders represents something rare—a record of the life of a mixed-race woman during the decades leading up to the Civil War.Sanders was the daughter of Richard Walpole Cogdell, a white man from Charleston, South Carolina, who procured a home in Philadelphia in the 1850s for the family he fathered with Sarah Martha Sanders, a black woman.2 The surviving ...

  • Superannuated: Old Age on the Antebellum Plantation
    • Abstract: The "hand" system, one of the standards of productivity that emerged from the scientific management of chattel slavery, measured enslaved laborers against the maximum amount of work that could be expected from an ideal individual, or "prime hand," and proceeded by denominating their value in quarter fractions.1 Once the value of enslaved persons fell below a quarter-hand, they were labeled no value or, equivalently, superannuated.2 If one way to understand age is as the manifestation of time in the body, then the hand system inaugurated an alternative method for determining age. Rather than a fixed number measured chronologically since birth, the age of an individual was dictated by the amount of labor remaining ... Read More

  • Euthanasia Politics and the Indian Wars
    • Abstract: On December 11, 1868, several Kiowa, Kiowa-Apache, and Comanche chiefs met with W. B. Hazen, the US Army general in charge of Indian Affairs on the southern plains. This was not a friendly meeting. The chiefs represented those bands allied with the victims of Custer's recent attack on the Cheyenne along the Washita River in present-day Oklahoma. They had come to Fort Cobb on behalf of the surviving Cheyenne to assert their peaceful intentions, with one Comanche leader arguing that "the Indians are not warlike; only the soldiers are making war." Hazen dismissed these claims and blamed Native violence for the recent hostilities. He accused them of killing settler women and children and sternly told the assembled ... Read More

  • On the Inertia of Appetite: Transient Relations from the Chinatown Opium

    • Abstract: Profile of a "fiend" reposing in the ruins of an opium joint. (Arnold Genthe, "The 'Hop Fiend,'" ca. 1906, film transparency, 5 x 7 in. or smaller, Library of Congress Prints and Photographs Division, Washington, DC. www.loc.gov.)Antidrug campaigns have now served to propagate state racist violence against dispossessed people in the United States for nearly a century and a half. Obliquely registered in the above profile (fig. 1) are some of the aesthetic protocols of that ongoing drug war.1 As if to proxy the eye of the state, the photograph isolates a figure of abject craving, captioned "The 'Hop Fiend,'" against a ruined void. Just a few years earlier this had been a scene of more pleasurable transience—an opium ... Read More

  • Forum Introduction: "Toward a Biopolitics of Early America"
    • Abstract: Biopolitical frameworks have not yet received consistent or sustained attention in many subfields of early American studies. We therefore decided to include a forum to provide an opportunity for something of a prolegomenous discussion of new directions and possible interventions at the intersections of these spheres of inquiry. The forum comprises eight short pieces from scholars from a range of fields in the humanities, including literary studies, history, gender and sexuality studies, and the history of science, and who work on a range of historical periods. The intent of the forum was to create space in the special issue for writers to enact, or respond to, some of the provocations voiced by the introduction as ... Read More

  • Of Black Skin and Biopower: Lessons from the Eighteenth Century

As a historian who researches the medical and scientific constructions of race, I am not surprised by many of the theories put forth by renowned physicians of the eighteenth century about human difference—including those that traffic in vocabulary that pathologizes black people's bodies. Rush, whose many claims to fame include being a ... Read More

  • Sweetness, Capacity, Energy
    • Abstract: The first time I encountered Sydney Mintz's writing on sugar, I actually lost my breath. To my mind, Mintz's work is still the single most important and foundational text to take up the history of food in the context of the Americas. It's probably, too, the book that made me believe that writing about the matter we call "food" might ultimately yield a lifetime of rich material to think with.Here is a passage from Sweetness and Power that has stayed with me, harassed me even, through several years of teaching and writing on food, matter, race and the biopolitical:Substances like tea, sugar, rum, and tobacco were used by working people in accord with the tempos of working-class life. Those centuries when England ... Read More

Sourced from the collections of the State Library of Western Australia and reproduced with permission of the Library Board of Western Australia.Pictured in this photograph are Ho Yuck and Li Hung Pew, two Chinese sailors working aboard a British steamer around 1905 in Australian waters. This rare portrait of early-twentieth century Chinese sailors provides an intimate testament to the tens of thousands of other seamen like them who comprised a hidden maritime labor force on US vessels from the eighteenth to mid-twentieth century.

  • Biopolitical Resistance to Indian Relocation in the Great Lakes
    • Abstract: When the state of Indiana was founded in 1816, Anglo-American settlers controlled only the southernmost region of the territory. The Miami and Potawatomie managed the vast majority of the land and waterways. Such declarative acts illustrate the confidence and determination with which the federal government sought to appropriate these lands as an extension of the United States. Indeed, many of the Delaware, Piankashaw, Wea, and Kickapoo had already moved north or west to escape the seemingly inevitable violence of US westward expansion. Yet despite hundreds of years of colonization, the Miami Nation of Indiana remained on their homeland due partly to their strategic misuse of US biopolitical policies in the removal ... Read More

  • Geo into Bio and Back Again, or Tracing the Politics of Place and
           Sovereignty
    • Abstract: The depiction of indigeneity as a set of ingrained, generationally iterated propensities in US policy discourses, and Native response(s) to that process, provides a frame through which to consider how modes of reference, knowledge-production, discipline, and regulation that broadly fall under the rubric of biopolitics might be understood as a vehicle for the erasure, reconfiguration, and genealogical reconstruction of alternative geopolitical formations—Indigenous and otherwise. The Supreme Court decision in U.S. v. Kagama (1886) stands as a powerful example of US efforts to (re)define the legal and political character of Indianness in the late nineteenth century. The case addresses the murder of one resident of ... Read More

  • The Infant as Biopolitical Absence: Materiality, Viability, Mortality
    • Abstract: Outside the context of the biomedical sciences, the category of the infant remains profoundly undertheorized. This absence is striking in light of the dramatic rise of childhood studies scholarship across the humanities and social sciences during the past three decades. While interdisciplinary work in childhood studies has called attention to the inherent politicization of children's experiences and subjectivities, little to no interest has been directed toward the particularities of the infant as a biopolitical formation. Certainly, for anyone invested in a nonessentialist approach to bodily difference, on the one hand, and a feminist ethics of pro-choice embodiment, on the other, the figure of the infant poses ...

  • Secularism and Viable Life
    • Abstract: Or think of it like this.In 1883 a man named Henry M. Teller, acting in his role of secretary of the interior—a position that gave him jurisdiction over the Bureau of Indian Affairs—authorized the implementation of a "Religious Crimes Code." The document drawn up by his commissioner of Indian affairs, Hiram Price, is, in both its compression and its strange itemized multiplicity, altogether remarkable. Here, for instance, are just a few infractions mapped out in what would come to be known as a "Code of Indian Offenses":4th. The "sun-dance," the "scalp-dance," the "war-dance," and all other so-called feasts assimilating thereto, shall be considered "Indian offenses," and any Indian found guilty of being a ... Read More

  • Xenopolitics
    • Abstract: Lilith Iyapo wakes up after a very long sleep—more than two centuries—to discover she had developed cancer and been cured. The alien creatures who cured her, moreover, have altered her genetically, fixing the underlying mutation that predisposed her to cancer. That's the least of her revelations, actually, since the alien species did much more than cure Lilith. They rescued remnants of humanity and Earth from annihilation following an apocalyptic nuclear war. For their part, the Oankali find themselves ineluctably drawn to these self-destructive beings they have saved from certain death. And they consider cancer to be one of humanity's great "talents," a gift to the Oankali, since it helps them perfect their ... Read More

  • Thinking Black [Trans] Gender
    • Abstract: To put it mildly, the 2010s have been a disorienting decade of and for trans-gender in the United States. Anyone will tell you so. The usual story goes like this: whereas, once, trans people and our concerns were nearly invisible, now the country has found itself on the other side of a "transgender tipping point," as announced by a 2014 Time cover story,1 which has led to an influx of trans representation in popular media; preoccupation with trans students' bathroom habits; recurrent squabbles in the philosophical blogosphere; better account keeping on the US transgender dead; on and on. In short, the last five years or so have been marked by a profound increase in trans visibility.Importantly, this is not the ... Read More
