  • Editor's Note
    • Abstract: Although digital humanities is among the fastest-growing fields today, American studies' engagement with the digital did not emerge only in the last few years. As the guest editors trace in their introduction, since the mid-1990s scholars of American studies have explored the digital in many ways, as a site for exchange and sharing of resources, a tool for new methods of analysis, and an object of critical inquiry. Innovative works dealing with digital technology and media appeared in American Quarterly before the Hawai'i-based team took its editorial helm in 2014. Nonetheless, the rapidly expanding scope and changing nature of "the digital" and the newly emerging methods of both utilizing and interrogating it in ... Read More

  • Introduction: American Quarterly in the Digital Sphere
    • Abstract: This special issue explores digital humanities as a designation, as an associated constellation of technologies and practices, and as a site of convergence for inter-, multi-, and transdisciplinary scholarship. Propelled by the ever-increasing power of computing and grounded in the ongoing development of a networked new media, digital humanities scholarship has coalesced around a shared set of values: that theory can be engaged through practice, that scholarship should be open and accessible to all, and that collaboration is pivotal in American studies. At the same time, American studies scholars in the digital humanities have reinvigorated the important work of investigating cultural and political formations ... Read More

  • From Transformative Works to #transformDH: Digital Humanities as
           (Critical) Fandom
    • Abstract: Participants in and observers of the digital humanities have tended to describe this amorphous field, network, discourse, or discipline through metaphors of belonging. Great influence has been exerted by scholars' and bloggers' discussions of who is "in" and who is "out."1 At conferences, academic digital humanities' fashionability has lent itself to the metaphor of a "cool kids table."2 Any emerging field is likely to prompt debates over definition; in digital humanities, though, expressions of self-directed celebration or anxiety have proved to be a resilient and prolific genre. Underlying the questions of belonging are more concrete questions: do aspiring digital humanists need to be able to build digital ... Read More

  • Queer Indie Video Games as an Alternative Digital Humanities:
           Counterstrategies for Cultural Critique through Interactive Media
    • Abstract: Starting in 2012, with the inception and subsequent expansion of what has been termed the "queer games scene," the North American video games landscape has seen a rising tide of experimental, small-scale, independently developed digital queer games.1 These games can be called "queer" either because they explicitly reflect the experiences of LGBTQ people, because the designers and other artists who created them themselves identify as queer, or, most often, both. Despite the fact that mainstream video games and the cultures that surround them are still notoriously hostile toward those perceived as "different," these queer indie games and the artists who develop them are pushing the medium toward greater ...

  • #staywoke: Digital Engagement and Literacies in Antiracist Pedagogy
    • Abstract: The imperative of the popular hashtag "#staywoke" demands sustained awareness of intersectional social justice focused on antiblackness: to "stay woke" requires an awakening into critical consciousness predicated on the active push to stay informed and connected. This phrase in African American Vernacular English, popularized by the cultural force known as "Black Twitter," is linked to Black Lives Matter and the Movement's call to keep informed.1 American studies' engagement with the digital humanities demands the field's renewed commitment to open and accessible interdisciplinary antiracist work in light of Patrisse Cullors, Alicia Garza, and Opal Tometi's founding of #BlackLivesMatter as a grassroots movement ...

    • Abstract: The difficult intersectional, interdisciplinary work to be done includes within one frame the spaces of the political economic and the ontological, the battles of the activist and the epistemologist, the tracings of the historian and the artist.In July 2017 Google Maps announced a new crowdsourcing feature: mobile users can now add information about wheelchair accessibility to business listings.1 This crowdsourcing model mimics projects such as Microsoft's Access Earth, Access Now, AXS Map, and Wheelmap (funded by the Google Impact Challenge), which purport to ease public navigation for disabled people. Despite the popularity of such projects, however, their technological tools, methods, users, and philosophies of ... Read More

  • Nuestra Autohistoria: Toward a Chicana Digital Praxis
    • Abstract: The Digital Humanities seeks to play an inaugural role with respect to a world in which, no longer the sole producers, stewards, and disseminators of knowledge or culture, universities are called upon to shape natively digital models of scholarly discourse for the newly emergent public spheres of the present era (the www, the blogosphere, digital libraries, etc.), to model excellence and innovation in these domains, and to facilitate the formation of networks of knowledge production, exchange, and dissemination that are, at once, global and local.What we are is what we decide we are. And what we do with our identity is also our decision, not the decision of men, the universities, "herstories," "his-stories," or ... Read More

  • Black Matters of Value: Archiving James Baldwin's House as a Virtual
           Writer's Museum
    • Abstract: The resources available to us for benign access to each other … are few but powerful: language, image, and experience. … These two godlings, language and image, feed and form experience … [and] help us to pursue the human project—which is to remain human and to block dehumanization of others. … There are no strangers. There are only versions of ourselves, many of which we have not embraced, most of which we wish to protect ourselves from. For the stranger is not foreign, she is random; not alien but remembered; and it is the randomness of the encounter with our already known—although unacknowledged—selves that summons a ripple of alarm.

  • Tweets of a Native Son: The Quotation and Recirculation of James Baldwin
           from Black Power to #BlackLivesMatter
    • Abstract: On August 9, 2014, around noon, a police officer, Darren Wilson, shot and killed eighteen-year-old Michael Brown in Ferguson, Missouri. That night, hundreds of miles from Missouri, the San Diego–based community organizer Kim Moore (@SoulRevision) added a voice, via Twitter, to the national chorus of grief and protest that was swelling over Brown's death, an outcry that had been sparked, both online and offline, by the residents of Ferguson.1 This voice was not, or not only, Moore's own, but also that of the civil rights literary icon James Baldwin: "#MikeBrown & #EricGarner's death speak to James Baldwin's quote; 'to be black a[nd] conscious in America is to be in a constant state of rage.'"2 Moore's framing of ...

  • Markup as Behavior toward Risk: Reforming the Metanarratives of Metadata
           through Susan Howe's Metafictive Poetics
    • Abstract: "Rules are guards and fences // In the court of black earth / To be infinite," writes Susan Howe in her 1990 poem "Scattering As Behavior Toward Risk."1 Expressing both a reaction and a challenge to the limiting and controlling functions of rules, Howe's poetic oeuvre performs the sentiment of these lines by rejecting the rules that order the textual page (fig. 1).2 Letters do not always resolve into words; words refuse to sit in horizontal lines; lines appear on diagonals, at times crisscrossing each other. In Steven Axelrod, Camille Roman, and Thomas Travisano's words, Howe's poetry "turns the linearity of the ordinary text into a series of unpredictable designs and meanings that must be inferred … purposefully ...

  • Digital Projects Introduction
    • Abstract: Although the scholarly essay is a central form through which we analyze digital humanities work, we strongly believe that digital projects are equally important representations of the broad range of work at the intersection of American studies and digital humanities. Academics have often wrestled with how to interpret and evaluate digital projects, as the form does not fit into many of our traditional models of scholarly peer review. In part this is because projects' forms are slippery, ranging from the development of new tools and methodologies that allow interpretation of cultural materials to stand-alone digital objects for examination, as is the case with a digital archive collection. The digital project is ... Read More

  • The Paxton Pamphlet War as a Viral Media Event
    • Abstract: As an open-access digital collection, scholarly edition, and teaching platform, Digital Paxton provides the primary-source and contextual materials necessary to explore Pennsylvania's 1764 Paxton "pamphlet war," situating that debate within a wider crisis of representation that stretches from the Seven Years' War (1756–63) to the Northwest Ordinance (1787). That crisis escalated in December 1763, when a mob of backcountry settlers from Paxton Township murdered twenty unarmed Conestoga Indians along the Pennsylvania frontier. Soon after, hundreds of "Paxton Boys" marched on Philadelphia to menace a group of Moravian Indians who had, in response to the violence, been placed under government protection. Though direct ...

  • Witness in the Era of Mass Incarceration
    • Abstract: The American Prison Writing Archive (APWA) is an open-source and fully searchable digital platform that makes first-person nonfiction essays by incarcerated people, as well as by prison workers and volunteers, available to a global public, to policymakers, to families of incarcerated people, and to scholars and students. Though "prison writing" is in its name in order to be as accessible as possible to general audiences, the APWA treats these essays as what they are, a witness literature: testimony by those bearing direct experience of carceral conditions and whose reaching beyond prison walls critically disassembles the "massification" of their state-sponsored and state-founding confinement.Essays are solicited ...

  • Countermapping Displacement and Resistance in Alameda County with the

    • Abstract: The Anti-Eviction Mapping Project is a data visualization, data analysis, and digital storytelling collective documenting dispossession and resistance upon gentrifying landscapes. As a collective of housing justice activists, researchers, technologists, artists, filmmakers, and oral historians, we create digital humanities pieces embedded in broader antidisplacement work transpiring in the San Francisco Bay Area, Los Angeles, and New York City. Having produced over one hundred digital interactive web maps, nearly that many oral histories and video pieces, a dozen reports and articles, and several map projections and digitally interactive murals, the project works across disciplines with numerous community partners. ...

    • Abstract: Chicana Diasporic: A Nomadic Journey of the Activist Exiled is a multimodal, media-rich, literary exploration of the political-ideological journey of the women of the Chicana Caucus of the National Women's Political Caucus (NWPC) from 1973 to 1979. The museum collection format of this interdisciplinary experience of the NWPC Chicana Caucus includes hybrid-text with personal narrative and annotations of speeches, correspondence, event posters, photographs, filmed interview clips, an introductory narrative and timeline that defines the Caucus's history, structure and purpose, and its national impact on 1970s second-wave feminism. Chicana Diasporic analyzes the character, motivation, and origins of the ... Read More

           Kardashians
    • Abstract: In 2015 the season premiere of Keeping Up with the Kardashians (KUWTK) was the most viewed Sunday cable program, outperforming the series finale of the critically acclaimed television drama Mad Men. While Kim Kardashian and company have never received the adulation that Don Draper elicited, the family's sheer popularity and infamy demands further inspection by scholars who claim interest in the cultural productions that reflect and shape our historical moment. As consumers of reality television and digital human-ists alike, we ask: what does it really take to keep up with the Kardashians' In response, the six members of the 2016–17 Praxis Program, an interdisciplinary cohort of graduate students in the Scholars' ...

    • Abstract: What might a critically engaged classroom exploring the connections between the digital humanities and ethnic studies look like within contemporary American studies' Consider, for instance, that African Americans and Latino/a/xs are significantly less likely to have regular internet access than those who identify as Asian American or white.1 As places with unique technology resources and digital literacy training, spaces of higher education become promising sites where students of color can counter these inequities. Yet access to digital technologies and literacy remains highly uneven and precarious in even the best-resourced settings, where formal digital humanities programs, funding, and high-end technologies are ...

  • Engaging Community and Spatial Humanities for Postindustrial Heritage: The
           Keweenaw Time Traveler
    • Abstract: The Keweenaw Time Traveler is an interactive, online historical atlas that creates a comprehensive spatial representation of the social and built environments of one of the country's first and largest extractive landscapes. Launched to the public in the summer of 2017, it combines deep mapping with digital public humanities to create a mutually beneficial online tool for researchers and community stakeholders alike. On Michigan's southern shore of Lake Superior, the Keweenaw Peninsula has an abundant built heritage that includes abandoned mine shaft buildings, former company towns, and ethnic community halls. Such sites recall the region's copper mining industry, active between 1860 and 1950, and demonstrate to ... Read More

  • Becoming Digital, Becoming Queer
    • Abstract: One of the recent developments from the open-ended call for a "critical turn" in the digital humanities has been the noticeable decline of both utopic and dystopic predictions about the "future of the book," or the "future of the humanities" writ large. In place of those prognostications, state-of-the-field discussions have attended to alternate genealogies and origins of computational and/or digitally mediated forms of scholarship. The preponderance of essays from scholars in black studies as well as feminist and queer theory in the "Histories and the Futures of DH" section of the latest edition of Debates in the Digital Humanities reveals more than mere growing diversity of DH scholars and projects.1 More ...

  • Forum Introduction
    • Abstract: Scholarship at the intersection of two capacious modes of inquiry—American studies and digital humanities—results in a range of opportunities and challenges. Methodological experimentation enables distinctive avenues of research but can be difficult to access and support. Forms of knowledge facilitated by digital technologies offer new ways of knowing but can be expensive to create and illegible with respect to current assessment structures. Such conditions are further complicated by institutional investments in digital humanities and by the very technologies that render its modes of inquiry feasible, both of which can be at odds with American studies commitments. Such concerns precede and exceed these pages. The ... Read More

  • American Studies + Computational Humanities
    • Abstract: Recounting her experience at the 2008 annual conference of the American Studies Association, Tara McPherson observed that attendees were suspicious of computational work. They "perceiv[ed] it to be complicit with the corporatization of higher education or as primarily technological rather than scholarly," she argued.1 Arguments continue to circulate that computational work—whether in the form of articles, digital projects, or tools—is merely technological positivism, often in the service of neoliberalism. Daniel Allington, Sarah Brouillette, and David Golumbia's polemic in the Los Angeles Review of Books, for example, argues that digital humanities is actively facilitating the neoliberal takeover of the university ...

  • Where Are We' The Method of Mapping with GIS in Digital Humanities
    • Abstract: For decades, the "spatial turn" has shaped and been shaped by the thinking of scholars and students in American studies in regard to the production, meaning, and experience of space and place. The "digital turn" soon followed and intertwined with the previous twist: "The recent embrace of GIS and other digital tools by the traditionally technology-averse disciplines of English and history is connected to the theoretical recognition of the importance of spatiality."1 Thousands of mapping projects using geographic information systems in the digital humanities have become increasingly online, interactive, and critical over the years.2 What is the state of GIS in the digital humanities, and what is next' In other ...

  • Run with Whatever You Can Carry": Cross-Platform Materials and Methods in
           Performance Studies–Meets–Digital Humanities
    • Abstract: This essay is structured by my remix of "Instructions," a 1996 song by Veda Hille, a Vancouver-based songwriter, musician, and performer.1 Each heading is an instruction from her song, which I returned to recently as I moved back to Canada after several years of living and working in the United States. It always struck me as a survival guide for the absurdity and brink-of-apocalypse quality of contemporary life. The absurdity (understatement) continues; today's apocalypse, as always, targets some more than others. And many people have already experienced the/an apocalypse many times over.The song was a favorite of mine when I was an undergraduate dropout and emerging performer in Vancouver in the late 1990s. This ... Read More

  • Mapping Segregated Histories of Racial Violence
    • Abstract: As a historian of state-sanctioned racial terror in the US–Mexico borderlands, I have worked to reckon with the long legacies of the past in the midst of ongoing violence by local, state, and federal law enforcement. The technologies are new, but the rhetoric, the methods, and the patterns are hauntingly familiar. The need to inform public understandings of the past, and its relation to our present, is urgent. To do this requires new methods of storytelling. Since 2014 I have been the primary investigator for a digital research project, Mapping Violence. The project takes the shape of a digital archive that documents cases of racial violence in Texas from 1900 to 1930. The research is stored in a database and will ... Read More

  • 4DH + 1 Black Code / Black Femme Forms of Knowledge and Practice
    • Abstract: In the wake of my aunt's death, I've been thinking about black femme history, testimony, faces, and feeling. It meant something beyond words, text or archive, to see my face in her face, to bask in the black diaspora humming beneath her skin. Every day, I searched for myself in her mouth wide open with laughter, the cut of her eyes across a room, her lips narrowed around Puerto Rican Spanish or English, usually both. Today, missing her, I mine my archive of photographs, digital and digitized, for her image, savoring the irreverence of her grin or the sacred mischief beneath hands she placed on her hips. Searching for her in bits and bytes is a practice of mourning. It is also a practice of sorting and seeking out ... Read More

  • Knowing Why Revolution Must Come: Digital Humanities as Poetry and Prayer
    • Abstract: In Joy Harjo's "Eagle Poem" she observes that "to pray you open your whole self" to the world. This is an act not only of openness but also of humility: you "know that there is more / that you can't see, can't hear."1Calling in the presence of a "more" that is beyond visual or aural proof, Harjo draws our attention to ways of being and sensorial engagements that exceed dominant Anglo knowledge paradigms. Her "more" points to the many modes of communication, the "cloud-language, cricket-singing talk, and the melodic whir of hummingbirds" that are so often overwritten by the "violent colonization process" of the English language and Anglo ways of knowing.2Harjo also points to the ways of being, the bodies, spirits ...

  • Ninety-Nine Problems: Assessment, Inclusion, and Other Old-New Problems
    • Abstract: Writing at the end of the nineteenth century, W. E. B. Du Bois opens his seminal The Souls of Black Folk with a simple formulation that encapsulates the workings of structural inequality even still today: "How does it feel to be a problem'" The question is striking in its disingenuousness, masking the questioner's complicity in the interrogee's predicament. When I ask you to talk to me about a thing that has happened to you, "your" thing, the fact of my asking asserts my ignorance as innocence, even as I know enough to presume it is safe to refer to you as a problem. The fact of my asking also weaponizes my imagination of good will: I am asking because I am concerned about you, which transforms a thing that is ... Read More

  • Against Mentoring
    • Abstract: Mentoring can be a problematic term. According to Google's Ngram Viewer, the word mentoring, despite its associations with unselfish activities, seems to be roughly correlated with the rise of neoliberalism and its associated focus on human capital. Of course, I do not accept broad generalizations that the digital humanities promote a neoliberal agenda, because such conspiracy theories often marginalize alternative variants of the digital humanities that could be placed at the center rather than the periphery of the field.1 But I do think that the concept of mentoring often normalizes assumptions that an autonomous homo economicus should be the prime mover in the academy. After all, a mentor is supposed to adopt a ... Read More

  • Precarious Labor and the Digital Humanities
    • Abstract: We want to believe that we can be agile and innovative, like Silicon Valley says it is, by making DH run with short-term grants, app contests, and temporary labor. We want to have a sort of Uber-style sharing economy for DH-research. But this is not how one supports careful, enduring scholarship and teaching.Despite the money and prestige that seems to come with the label, digital humanities is a field that relies on grants and temporary positions to establish credibility on campuses. As a result, DH laborers are frequently precarious across institutions. They occupy a startling range of positions: administrators, adjuncts, postdocs, graduate and undergraduate students, tenure-track and contingent faculty ... Read More

  • The Digital Humanities, American Studies, and the Anti-Eviction Mapping
           Project
    • Abstract: In an era in which digital web mapping and data visualization projects have taken over the media and the twenty-four-hour news cycle, in which "gentrification" has become a buzzword used to describe urban mutations across the planet without nuance, what does it mean to be an anticapitalist, antiracist, and feminist digital cartography collective working outside the formal boundaries of academe, the nonprofit industrial complex, and the media' Further, in times in which technocapitalism rampantly incites new forms of racialized dispossession on a growing array of technoscapes, what does it mean to use technology to provide data, tools, narratives, and analytics to counter gentrifying tides' These are but some of the ...

  • Generative Tensions: Building a Digital Project on Early African American
           Race Film
    • Abstract: In February 2016 the American Academy of Arts and Sciences came under intense scrutiny because of its failure to nominate any actors of color for any of the top four award categories. The controversy, which became known as #OscarsSoWhite, was a topic of conversation for students at the University of California, Los Angeles, too, since we tend to be very aware of our proximity to Hollywood.1 Students in the Digital Humanities program wondered whether a digital project might offer a productive intervention in the conversation. It struck us that most of the conversations about race and Hollywood framed the Academy's failure to acknowledge actors of color as a kind of inability to see the vibrant work being done by ...

  • A Children's Book, Nineteenth-Century News, and Multimedia Approaches to
           American Studies
    • Abstract: In Scott O'Dell's Newbery-winning novel Island of the Blue Dolphins (1960), a twelve-year-old protagonist, Karana, flourishes on her natal island when left alone for eighteen years. This memorable children's character did not emerge from O'Dell's imagination unbidden: she is a fictionalization of the historical figure now known as the Lone Woman of San Nicolas Island (whose birth name is lost to history). Anthropologists have called her people the Nicoleños, after the Spanish name for their homeland—the most remote of the California Channel Islands. Between 1835 and 1853, one Nicoleña spent eighteen years in relative isolation. Unlike O'Dell's Karana, however, she was an adult, likely between the ages of thirty and ... Read More

  • Renewing Inequality and Mapping Inequality
    • Abstract: Two decades of historical scholarship have deftly examined the racial underpinnings of urban history, exploring how residential segregation was constructed around federal policies and funding purported to support cities. But two digital projects, Mapping Inequality and Renewing Inequality, add another important and stunning way to understand these policies: through their visualization in time and place. Together they provide an excellent overview of urban federal policies and their impact on American families between 1930 and 1970. While the histories of these policies are well covered among urban historians, the two projects helpfully combine a broad overview of these policies and their implementation's effect and ...
