  • In Memoriam
    • Abstract: After this issue of American Quarterly went into production, we received the news of the passing of two of our beloved colleagues whose work was particularly important to our editorial team.James Horton, Benjamin Banneker Professor Emeritus of American Studies and History at George Washington University, was a prolific scholar, eloquent speaker, and dedicated teacher who made a major imprint on the study of slavery and emancipation, race, African American history, and public history. He was a visiting professor of American Studies at the University of Hawai'i from 2006 to 2008 and worked with scholars and practitioners on the island on a range of public humanities projects and initiatives.Teresia Teaiwa, director ...

  • Editor's Note
    • Abstract: Each piece in this issue of American Quarterly has disparate origins and routes. Although we were keenly aware of the importance of each essay from the beginning, as we move into the production phase just a week after Donald Trump's inauguration, every essay has become far more relevant to the world we live in than we had imagined at the outset.Robert Warrior's presidential address delivered at the ASA annual meeting in Denver in November 2016 probes the meaning of the conference theme, "Home / Not Home: Centering American Studies Where We Are," by tracing how American studies as a field and the ASA as a scholarly organization have created a home and community for many scholars and activists who often work on the ...

  • Home / Not Home: Centering American Studies Where We Are
    • Abstract: Back in the 1990s I spent several Christmas Eves at San Francisco's Castro Theatre for the annual "Home for the Holidays" concert of the San Francisco Gay Men's Chorus.1 My brother, David Warrior, was a member of the chorus for a short time in the months before he died of AIDS in late September 1992.2 He never got to sing in the chorus's holiday concert, but going to that concert after he died became a way to connect with his memory and also to connect with the community, the place, and the people who had offered him and so many others a home in the midst of the first decade of the AIDS crisis.The signature song of those concerts, which continue into the present, is the Robert Allen and Al Stillman American holiday ...

  • Protective Measures: Reflections on Robert Warrior's 2016 ASA Presidential
           Address
    • Abstract: Through and between Robert Warrior's words there is a tension between isolation and the labor of community—here, the collective work of peoplehood, an activated imagination of life and creativity under conditions of long, normalized duress. I suspect that this is the echoing of a biographical substance that is far more historically exemplary than it is conveniently individualized: Robert Warrior, Professor Warrior, understands better than most what it means to feel alone in hostile circumstances, more precisely, to live the strange loneliness of Indigeneity within the white university's genteel low-intensity warfare against all humanity that violates the templates of Civilization and its multiculturalist ...

  • Home Is the Crucible of Struggle
    • Abstract: Creating home, or what may also be described as a struggle to belong, has always been political in the United States. In a country founded on the extermination of its indigenous population, whose wealth was derived from the forced labor of the enslaved, and for whom that wealth was multiplied a trillion times over through the violent expropriation of waves upon waves of immigrant labor—to stay or belong has been brutally contested and valiantly fought to achieve. In other words, we share a history of repression and resistance in the elemental, human struggle to belong, to be home. Those various battles over land rights and citizenship; the right to work and housing; the right to vote, speak, and organize have all ... Read More

  • Tracing the Settler's Tools: A Forum on Patrick Wolfe's Life and Legacy

As his work lives on, may he rest in power.Patrick Wolfe in Honolulu on April 29, 2009, after his lecture "Race and the Trace of History."In this forum, scholars from different disciplinary locations take up Patrick Wolfe's 2016 book, Traces of History: Elementary Structures of Race, and consider its importance for the field of American studies. Contributors discuss challenges that Traces of History poses and the possibilities it opens that are of value to American studies and its approaches to racial formation and settler colonialism. They approach Wolfe's book as experts in one or more of the racial discourses and histories it takes up, and from ... Read More

  • Tracing Settler Colonialism's Eliminatory Logic in Traces of History
    • Abstract: No concept has reoriented the field of Indigenous studies recently more than the theoretical framework of settler colonialism. And although Patrick Wolfe would be the first to insist that he did not invent it, his 2006 article, "Settler Colonialism and the Elimination of the Native," offered a language for settler colonial studies that has been immensely influential. He places genocide in relation to what he calls "the logic of elimination," concluding, "settler colonialism is inherently eliminatory but not invariably genocidal,"1 and that "invasion is a structure not an event," meaning that it is an ongoing process rather than something accomplished at a single moment.2 As he states, "settler colonialism destroys ...

  • Tracing Historical Specificity: Race and the Colonial Politics of
           (In)Capacity
    • Abstract: In October 2016 I attended a lecture by Frank B. Wilderson III sponsored by Wesleyan's Center for the Humanities. I had read his book Red, White & Black: Cinema and the Structure of US Antagonisms, along with select articles and interviews—but had yet to hear him present his work. The talk was titled "Afro-Pessimism and the Ruse of Analogy." I went in already critical given my familiarity with Afro-Pessimist thought—not only through his work, but that of Jared Sexton and other scholars.1 As Wilderson himself explains, Afro-Pessimism is an "unflinching paradigmatic analysis on the structures of modernity produced by slavery and genocide." Drawing on the works of Orlando Patterson, Saidiya Hartman, and Hortense ... Read More

  • The Rest of Us: Rethinking Settler and Native
    • Abstract: Marxist analysis should always be slightly stretched every time we have to do with the colonial problem.Neither the English people themselves nor the masses of imperial subjects could be expected to perpetually accede to the imperial myth of civilizing in the face of the overtly selfish and catastrophic preoccupations of white settler colonists.In Patrick Wolfe we lost an intellectual giant. More than any other scholar, he has emerged as the leading figure in the burgeoning field of settler colonial studies and has done so much to advance its generative theoretical paradigm. We also lost another intellectual giant in 2016: Cedric J. Robinson, whose work challenged liberal and Marxist theories of political change ... Read More

  • Elimination as a Structure: Tracing and Racing Zionism with Patrick Wolfe
    • Abstract: One of the great virtues of Patrick Wolfe's Traces of History is that it locates different settler colonial situations in a comparative framework, thereby allowing us to see both how each situation relates to or draws on the others—but also what renders each distinctive in its own right. The Zionist project in Palestine stands out in this comparative framework, although it has clear relations to other settler colonial endeavors (such as those in Australia and the Americas, also discussed at length in his book). As Wolfe shows, no other settler colonial campaign was so meticulously planned and thought through; none so premeditated; none so wrapped up in so many ideological sleights of hand, so many layers of ...

  • Traces of History, Specters of the Future
    • Abstract: My friendship with Patrick Wolfe came all too late and was cut short by his shockingly unexpected and untimely death. I last saw him when our paths crossed briefly in Ramallah, Palestine, a month before he died. Now it seems all too fitting to have unwittingly said farewell to him as he was engaging in one of those acts of solidarity that were always continuous with his intellectual practice. I cannot claim to have known him as others in this forum did, though I had long known and admired and learned from his work. But I did have the exceptional privilege of writing with him what may have been one of the last essays he composed, our joint introduction to a special issue of Settler Colonial Studies, "Settler ...

  • Mad Futures: Affect/Theory/Violence
    • Abstract: In the summer of 2016 a North Miami police officer shoots a black man lying on his back with his hands raised. The man is Charles Kinsey, a behavioral therapist. So far, this would seem to be an example of the all-too-common occurrence of racialized police violence in the contemporary United States. Yet next to Kinsey sits his autistic client, Arnaldo Eliud Rios Soto, also a person of color, who is holding a toy truck. Kinsey was shot as he was bringing Rios Soto back to the group "home" from which he had escaped. When the police were first called, it was Rios Soto who was believed to be dangerous by the caller, who reported seeing him "holding something like a gun." The story becomes even more layered: conflicting ... Read More

  • Mad Is a Place; or, the Slave Ship Tows the Ship of Fools
    • Abstract: At the onset of Madness and Civilization, Michel Foucault chases the ship of fools as it crisscrosses a mad diaspora. To have Foucault tell it, such ships were early modern nautical vessels whose lunatic occupants were deemed nuisances to their communities in Europe, expelled from home, made wards of sailors, and consigned to drift perpetually along European rivers and seas. He declares that the mad seafarer "is the Passenger par excellence: that is, the prisoner of the passage. And the land he will come to is unknown—as is, once he disembarks, the land from which he comes. He has his truth and his homeland only in that fruitless expanse between two countries that cannot belong to him."1 Foucault describes a tragic ... Read More

  • Quagmires of Affect: Madness, Labor, Whiteness, and Ideological Disavowal
    • Abstract: Queer of color engagements with affect theory demonstrate that careful examination of structures of feeling can reveal phenomenologies of race. Interventions by scholars such as Sara Ahmed, Mel Chen, and Jin Haritaworn provide new insight into Marxist cultural theorists' conceptualizations of affect as the product of repetition and sedimentation of ideology, rather than of "preindividual bodily capacities."1 The "affective turn" has specific implications for mad theory and politics,2 which include, on the one hand, the reproduction of white, Western interests in disability theory, and on the other, the reproduction of the "immaterial" body and ideas of capitalism without class. Following Dian Million's call for a ... Read More

  • Queer History, Mad History, and the Politics of Health
    • Abstract: Among the central themes of the eclectic field of mad studies is a critique of psychiatric authority. Activists and academics, from a range of positions and perspectives, have questioned psychiatry's normalizing impulses and have privileged mad-identified knowledges over expert ones. One of the most successful assaults on psychiatric authority was launched by gay activists in the 1960s and early 1970s, resulting in the removal of homosexuality from the American Psychiatric Association's (APA) Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders (DSM) in 1973. But if that event marked an inspirational victory against psychiatric power, it was also, as Robert McRuer notes, "a distancing from disability."1 Revisiting ... Read More

  • On Affect Theory's Hidden Histories: Toward a Technological Genealogy
    • Abstract: In his 1995 essay "The Autonomy of Affect," Brian Massumi presents three case studies, all framed as stories, through which he explores the nature and workings of affect: the second, the "mystery of the missing half-second," he marks as a story "of the brain," the third, a story about Ronald Reagan, as one "of the brainless." All three are underscored by the medicalized apparatus of neuro(techno)logy.1 In what follows, I aim to illustrate why this matters by taking a closer look at two of Massumi's stories.2From the beginning of the recent turn to affect in cultural theory, there has been debate about affect theory's use of neuroscience. Often, critique centers on the essentialist dangers that a reliance on ... Read More

  • Mad Data: Between Symptom and Experience
    • Abstract: This essay attempts to reverse the privileging of the physical body in disability theory by considering what I describe as the intermediate, presymptomatic experience of madness as a form of "data." This account of what I call "mad data" might help shatter long-debated oppositions between social/discursive and biologically determinative approaches to understanding madness and mental illness, as well as the overly dualistic argument between "sensation"- and "feeling"-based approaches to theorizing affect. In a groundbreaking article, "Humanities Approaches to Graphical Display," Johanna Drucker offers a definition of the term data (here in the context of a discussion of the digital humanities) as capta, a French ...

  • Turning Mad Knowledge into Affective Labor: The Case of the Peer Support
           Worker
    • Abstract: As advancements are made through processes of social inclusion, disability justice frameworks have emerged to query the limits of rights-based and incorporation strategies by revealing how such practices sustain systems of oppression.1 Indeed, disability justice has shown how inclusion models position "exclusion" as the problem in need of redress, leaving larger structural issues of inequity unchallenged. Positioned within the larger field of critical disability studies, mad studies scholars and activists are beginning to reevaluate the consequences of what it means to participate in regimes of power, as we now must deal with what results from being included and recognized by the political apparatuses and ...

  • Agitation and Sudden Death: Containing Black Detainee Affect
    • Abstract: In recent years, Native studies and critical race scholars have examined how the ongoing expansion of mental health is deeply imbricated in the unfinished project of settler colonialism and white supremacy in the Americas. Psychiatrists have delegitimized Black people's resistance through discourses of mania and pathological violence, denied accountability for genocidal policies through individualizing labels such as Residential School Syndrome, and naturalized suicide as a by-product of "Asian culture," erasing precarious migrant labor on stolen lands.1 Black, Indigenous, and queer of color affect theorists have further shown how "psy" concepts circulate within our different nations and communities through calls ...

  • Exclusion on the Ground: Racism, Official Discretion, and the Quotidian
           Enforcement of General Immigration Law in the Pacific Northwest Borderland
           
    • Abstract: In the 1890s immigration officers in Washington State busily enforced federal immigration law against newcomers from Asia. The officials had been executing the Chinese exclusion law since the 1880s, but their principal duty shifted by the middle of the 1890s to excluding the Japanese deemed to belong to prohibited classes under general immigration law applicable to all non-Chinese foreigners, such as paupers, people likely to become public charges, and people migrating under contract to perform labor in the United States (contract laborers). Charged with guarding multiple points of entry with limited staff, Washington officers found themselves traveling all the time. An officer named William Archer in Tacoma was ... Read More

  • A Collapsing Division: Border and Interior Enforcement in the US
           Deportation System
    • Abstract: On a hot spring day in 2011, Barack Obama waved to a crowd from his podium at the Chamizal National Memorial in El Paso, Texas. The president had come to the memorial to deliver a major address on immigration, in which he would unveil his broad vision of immigration reform, the central legislative ambition of his second term. It was a fitting site for the occasion. El Paso sits directly on the border between the United States and Mexico, and the Chamizal memorial marks the peaceful conclusion to the last official dispute over the placement of the sovereign boundary between the two countries. When the park first opened in 1966, US president Lyndon Johnson and Mexican president Adolfo López Mateos met in Chamizal for ... Read More

  • Environmental Deadpan: New Scales and Sensations of Ecological Fallout
    • Abstract: In a late-series episode from Aaron Sorkin's HBO drama The Newsroom, the seasoned anchor, Will McAvoy (Jeff Daniels), interviews a beleaguered scientist from the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) about the latest carbon report. McAvoy asks his guest to update the audience on the prognosis for global climate change. The agent calmly responds that atmospheric carbon dioxide has reached a level that would guarantee—within a few generations and in ways that would affect humans already born—the catastrophic failure of the planet. The camera cuts to the reaction shots of the astonished on-screen production crew and then to a flabbergasted McAvoy. Regaining composure, McAvoy prods the talking head for a silver lining ...

  • The Danger of a Singular Fashion: Studies of Race, Fashion, and Beauty in
           American Studies
    • Abstract: In a 2014 article for Elle magazine, "Why Can't Smart Women Love Fashion'," the celebrated Nigerian feminist author Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie describes how her relationship with fashion and dress changed upon moving to the United States. Prior to her move, clothing and hair occupied less-overdetermined positions for Adichie, and it was only on entering the world of the West that she began to notice an uneasy correlation between "dressing up" and presumed intelligence. Simply put, smart women placed less of a premium on dressing well and chose more austere and even unfashionable clothing to legitimize their positions. She writes, "I had learned a lesson about Western culture: Women who wanted to be taken seriously ... Read More

  • Latinx History outside the American Southwest and Borderlands
    • Abstract: Throughout the American Southwest and the borderlands area, there are visual reminders of Latinx presence. The murals in San Diego's Chicanx Park, for example, or the César E. Chávez National Monument in Keene, California, and even the Alamo in San Antonio, Texas, remind passersby of Latinxs' existence in the area, however contested that presence may be. Yet murals such as Ruby Chacón's Cihuacoatl and Gold Rule in downtown Salt Lake City are often perceived as out of place. Her depictions of Latinx musicians, farm peddlers, and even César Chávez call for a reckoning with the agency and strength of Latinxs and the importance of their labor, political, social, and cultural contributions to Utah. The unintelligibility ... Read More
