  • Editor's Note
    • Abstract: Empire, war, and colonialism; race, gender, and class; discourse, performance, and subjectivity: these are the issues that the four essays featured here examine through diverse approaches and foci.Karen Miller's essay expands our understanding of racialized and gendered machinations of colonial power by focusing on the unusual figure of James Fugate—a soldier, colonial administrator, and missionary in the Philippines from 1900 to 1938—and demonstrating the working of what she calls "colonial bureaucratic masculinity." Jonna Perrillo studies the children of Operation Paperclip, a military program that brought scientists and technicians from the Third Reich to build US missiles, to analyze how romanticized narratives ...

  • "Thin, Wistful, and White": James Fugate and Colonial Bureaucratic
           Masculinity in the Philippines, 1900–1938
    • Abstract: In February 1910 the New York Times reported that seven American military officers stationed in the Philippines would be retired from the service for failing a test of their physical fitness. These officers, between forty-eight and sixty-three years old, were unable to pass a three-day, ninety-mile endurance test on horseback. One fell to the ground after suffering from heatstroke, another had to be "dosed with some medicine," and a third finished the ride but landed in the hospital. The four remaining officers did not even try. "No matter what," the Times concluded, Americans could not "keep in first-class condition" in "the tropics."1Stories like this, about unmanly white American men who managed the United ... Read More

    • Abstract: Scientist Ernst Seiler with sons Klaus and Bernd at their barracks on the boys' first day in El Paso, 1948. Courtesy of Bernd Seiler.One winter afternoon in 1946, Alicia Swann, an elementary school principal in El Paso, received an unusual phone call. Lois Godfrey, the American military liaison for the families of Nazi scientists relocated to nearby Fort Bliss, called Swann to ask if Crockett Elementary might accept some of the ninety school-aged children who would arrive in El Paso that spring. A year earlier, in one of the first acts of the Cold War, the US Army had launched Operation Paperclip, recruiting 118 scientists and technicians who designed the V-2 missile for the Third Reich to build an American missile ...

  • Plastic Empowerment: Financial Literacy and Black Economic Life
    • Abstract: Of the multiple changes to consumer banking in the last fifty years, decreases in savings, increases in borrowing, and the shift from a cash to a plastic economy have received the most attention.1 A recent spate of books like Mehrsa Baradaran's How the Other Half Banks and Lisa Servon's Unbanking of America focuses on a related but perhaps more dramatic shift.2 Due to deregulation, profit-seeking through fees (most notably overdraft "protection" fees), and a shift to focusing on wealthy customers, "over the past four decades … banking itself has morphed into a system that no longer serves the needs of far too many Americans."3 Instead, low- and middle-income Americans are switching to so-called "alternative ...

    • Abstract: They went into my closets looking for skeletons, but—thank God—all they found were shoes, beautiful shoes!Around the world today, Imelda Romualdez Marcos is often remembered solely for the extensive shoe collection she left behind when she fled the Philippines.1 Her accumulation of over three thousand pairs of shoes, most notably stilettos, underscores the rampant corruption and abuse of power under the regime of her and her husband, President Ferdinand Marcos, from 1965 to 1986, during which the majority of the country lived in destitution. Among the many crimes they committed both during and outside martial law (1972–81)—crimes the former First Lady vehemently denies—are assassinations, executions ... Read More

  • Introduction
    • Abstract: This forum features scholars and activists engaged in a transnational discussion about border violence and border protests in North America, South Asia, Palestine/Israel, Europe/Mediterranean Sea, and North/South Korea. It originated in a roundtable, "Border Protests and Transnational Solidarities," hosted by the Mellon Research Initiative in Comparative Border Studies at UC Davis in February 2018.1 This event brought together activists and scholars from around the world to explore the role played by borders, and the work they do, in different sites of struggle against militarization, nuclearization, nativism, displacement, partition, and colonization. As a response to border tensions and violence, protest cultures ... Read More

  • The Struggle of Migrant Women across the Mediterranean Sea: WatchTheMed
           Alarm Phone
    • Abstract: The WatchTheMed Alarm Phone is an activist project that runs a 24/7 phone hotline for people in distress in the Mediterranean Sea.1 Our group consists of about two hundred activists in over a dozen countries, on both sides of the Mediterranean. Since we launched our project in October 2014, we have supported groups of migrant travelers on about 2,800 boats. The Alarm Phone network operates in all Mediterranean regions, and in particular between Turkey and Greece, Morocco and Spain, and Libya and Italy—currently the three main migratory routes across the sea. When we receive emergency calls, we try to identify the locations of the boats and learn as much as possible about the particular situation and predicament of ... Read More

  • LoC: The Line "out" of Control in the Region of Kashmir
    • Abstract: In 2013 Reshma Bi, a seventy-year-old Kashmiri woman, was pining for her sons in her native village of Charonda, in the Uri sector of the Indian-administered area of Kashmir. A few years earlier, Reshma's sons had fled to the Pakistan-administered side of Kashmir to escape police persecution because of their alleged role in cross-LOC trafficking. Uri is a garrison town near the Line of Control that separates the two regions of Kashmir under separate Indian and Pakistani control. The erstwhile princely state of Jammu and Kashmir, now divided and under Indian military occupation, stands as a testament to the fraught postcolonial aftermath of the partitioning of India and Pakistan in 1947, which is manifested in the ...

  • Disrupting War: Women Cross the Korean DMZ
    • Abstract: In 1945, on the eve of Japan's surrender to the United States, rather than liberate Korea, which had been colonized for thirty-five years by Japan, two young military officers were assigned by the US State and War Departments to divide Korea. The two officers tore out a map from National Geographic and literally drew a line across the thirty-eighth parallel because it placed Seoul in the US zone. President Harry S. Truman sent a memo to Joseph Stalin informing him that the Soviets could take Pyongyang and the area north of the thirty-eighth parallel, and that the US would take Seoul and the region south of it. It is through this arbitrary, imperial border-making process that Korea became divided over seventy years ... Read More

  • Border Research, Border Gestures: The Transborder Immigrant Tool
    • Abstract: The Tijuana–San Diego border has always been a site for staging military research. From 1968 until 1973, the US military spent close to one billion dollars a year on a new research program intended to end the war in Vietnam by establishing a computerized border field of networked sensors called Operation Igloo White. Igloo White was funded by ARPA (now DARPA), the Defense Department's edge technology sector, and the research was done by forty-five scientists from Research I US universities called "the Jasons" (after Jason and the Argonauts). The Jasons would gather every summer in La Jolla, California, where the University of California, San Diego (UCSD), is located. While the project failed to end the Vietnam War ... Read More

  • Unsettling Visual Politics: Militarized Borders in the Work of Palestinian
           Artist Raeda Saadeh
    • Abstract: This article looks at the work of the Palestinian artist Raeda Saadeh, which deals with militarized borders in Palestine. Through her mobilization of visual art—namely, through performance and video art—I show that Saadeh's work not only subverts the hegemonic visual dominance of the Israeli state but offers a context for thinking through visual liberation and sovereignty. I argue that understanding the subversion of visual politics is crucial in mapping and identifying the multiple strategies, of which art is one, that Palestinians employ in resisting Israel's militarized border apparatus.The construction of the Israeli military Wall on Palestinian lands in 2003 resurfaced a nearly century-old desire that was ...

  • Countering Right-Wing Populism: Transgressive Cosmopolitanism and
           Solidarity Movements in Europe
    • Abstract: Over the past several years, right-wing populist movements have emerged and strengthened across Europe and North America. Yet, at the same time, in response to growing xenophobia and racism, political mobilizations by refugees and migrants, as well as citizens working in solidarity with them, have also emerged, demanding human and labor rights, fair asylum processes, and mobility rights. We examine the emergence of grassroots solidarity initiatives in cities and towns such as Berlin, Copenhagen, Riace, Istanbul, and Gaziantep, which include arts and museum projects, kitchen hubs, and flat-sharing that foster pluralism and open community to newcomers. This essay examines these as transnational forms of solidarity ... Read More

  • Desert X 2019: Settler Colonial Imaginaries of the Desert
    • Abstract: On a bright Sunday afternoon in the early spring of 2019, we drove on dirt roads through dense clouds of migrating Painted Lady butterflies, leaving a trail of white dust behind us. Around us, the desert bloomed extravagantly after an unusually wet winter, as the vast blue expanse of the Salton Sea glimmered in the near distance. Our destination was a point on a map: the artist Iván Argote's installation A Point of View. We knew that we had arrived when we saw a short line of cars pulled over ahead of us on the otherwise quiet road. Not far from where the cars were parked, several concrete and wood staircases rose up from the desert sand, each leading to a small platform at the top. Making our way toward them, we ... Read More

  • Immersion and Immiseration: Alejandro González Iñárritu's
           Carne y Arena
    • Abstract: I was born in the United States, and every time I've left, it's been by choice, for work or for pleasure. I travel volitionally, and my movement is largely unhindered. Although I have had some memorable encounters with the security state at airports and border crossings, in general, the worst I expect at these places is a hassle or a delay. My nationality, my whiteness, my cis-genderedness, my able-bodiedness, and the markers of my class status help expedite my transit or deflect the gaze of the state.1 Thus I cannot know the subject position of a person who comes to the United States under duress, in fear, or of necessity, as an undocumented migrant. But the virtual reality simulation Carney Arena promises that I ... Read More

  • Reading the Past to Design Accessible Futures: Blindness and Education
           from Nineteenth-Century Tactile Books to Twenty-First-Century 3-D Printing
           
    • Abstract: For many of us, reading has become such an automatic process that we forget how it happens. At Touch This Page! Making Sense of the Ways We Read, a popup-style historical exhibit that debuted in four identical versions in libraries and universities in the Boston area, visitors were challenged to question these and other assumptions about reading and to consider what sensations and objects make the process possible. In addition to reflecting on their own reading practices, visitors engaged multiple senses, including touch, to explore the history of a specific reading technology: tactile printing developed in the nineteenth-century United States. In the 1830s, Perkins School for the Blind, the first school for blind ... Read More

  • Anti-Muslim Racism beyond Islamophobia
    • Abstract: In June 2018 the US Supreme Court affirmed the constitutionality of Donald Trump's Presidential Proclamation No. 9645, "Enhancing Vetting Capabilities and Processes for Detecting Attempted Entry into the United States by Terrorists or Other Public-Safety Threats."1 Trump's own vitriolic anti-Muslim statements about a policy colloquially known as the Muslim Ban had been a major part of his candidacy, and advocates and critics alike framed the proclamation as keeping Trump's campaign promise of either a "total and complete shutdown of Muslims entering the country," or at least "extreme vetting" of prospective visa recipients.2 After numerous legal challenges and significant public pressure, including massive protests ...
