  • Editor's Note
    • Abstract: The five essays in this issue exemplify the types of transnational interdisciplinary scholarship in which our editorial board is particularly invested. Conceptually ambitious, methodologically innovative, and analytically original, these essays represent the state of the field, and they are also impressive in their thematic, chronological, and geographic spread and their relevance to contemporary politics both domestic and global.Kendall A. Johnson's "The Sacred Fonts and Racial Frames of the American Mission Press: Mongolian Type, Chinese Exclusion, and the Transnational Figuration of Savagery" is especially remarkable in its historical and geographic scope. Johnson discusses the print evangelism of ... Read More

  • The Sacred Fonts and Racial Frames of the American Mission Press:
           Mongolian Type, Chinese Exclusion, and the Transnational Figuration of
           Savagery
    • Abstract: The extraterritorial print endeavors of the American Board of Commissioners of Foreign Missions (ABCFM) do not feature in classic accounts of American literary history but offer deep insight into the blend of evangelical idealism, free trade imperialism, and racialist thinking that pervaded the first century of diplomatic relations between China and the United States.1 During the antebellum period the Boston-based organization established a transnational circuitry of print that connected the expanding US with stations in China, Southeast Asia, and East Asia. From South China the missionaries printed and distributed pamphlets in Chinese script to reach potential converts and to showcase the benefits of civilizing ... Read More

  • Racist Cute: Caricature, Kawaii-Style, and the Asian Thing
    • Abstract: Asians have history. Many of us can trace our families back to China, Japan, Korea, Taiwan, Vietnam, Thailand, Sanrio.In 2015 two convicts tunneled out of a prison in upstate New York, leaving a note that thumbed their noses at authorities: "Have a nice day!" Accompanying this message was the image of a buck-toothed, slanty-eyed Asian face (fig. 1). The racist caricature saturated US media outlets as attempts to locate the fugitives dragged on. Against the ubiquitous display of the Asian caricature left by the fugitives, only NBC News blurred the image as if in belated awareness of the injury underlying racially reductive imagery.The much-broadcast Asian caricature uncannily reflects an almost identical, also ...

  • Amerikan Jokes: The Transnational Politics of Unlaughter in Turkey
    • Abstract: What do an elephant and a sprig of parsley have in common' Neither can ride a bike.In 1999 the famous Turkish journalist Emre Kongar used this riddle joke to exemplify a category of humor: "cold American jokes." Kongar defined American jokes as having been popular "in the past" (eskiden) and stated they consisted of "misleading questions that were detached from solid realities but made sense through an abstract logic."1 In fact, the joke in this instance is that there is no joke at all: what we get is a seemingly off-the-wall but actually accurate answer to a riddling question posed in the familiar "what does x have in common with y'" format. The question seems to prompt a charmingly clever punch line, but the ... Read More

  • Like a Refugee: Veterans, Vietnam, and the Making of a False Equivalence
    • Abstract: On March 15, 1980, Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers' "Refugee" peaked at number fifteen on the Billboard Hot 100. It was a breakout hit for the band and signaled a shift from the glam rock of David Bowie and the New York Dolls to the heartland rock of John Mellencamp and Bruce Springsteen. The song tells the story of a self-sabotaging lover who, having endured some unnamed misfortune, has chosen to live like a refugee. "Somebody must have kicked you around," Petty sings, but "everybody's had to fight to be free" and "you don't have to live like a refugee."1 The song was the second single from the band's triple-platinum third album, Damn the Torpedoes (1979), that Rolling Stone celebrated for Petty's "down-to-earth" ...

  • From Penal to "Civil": A Legacy of Private Prison Policy in a Landscape of
           Migrant Detention
    • Abstract: In 2016 the Bureau of Prisons announced it would phase out all contracts with private prison corporations (a decision that was reversed with the incoming Trump administration in 2017). This verdict prompted the US Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE), the federal bureaucracy that overseas immigration enforcement, to reevaluate its reliance on private prison corporations to manage migrant detention. ICE's final report concludes: "Because legitimate restriction on physical liberty is inherently and exclusively a governmental authority, much could be said for a fully government-owned and government-operated detention model, if one were starting a new detention system from scratch. But of course we are not ... Read More

  • Centering Pleasure and Anti-Respectability in Black Studies
    • Abstract: Sex is messy, and pleasure, in black studies, is even messier. Sexuality has long been considered a divisive topic within the field of black studies. While scholars have long engaged categories such as gender and class in conversation around the historical development of respectability politics, sexuality and pleasure has not been as central.1 "This Is Not Your Grandfather's Black Studies" conference, a convening I curated that was held October 13–14, 2017, at the University of Missouri (Columbia), attempted to address these tensions and advance new conversations about the interplay of race, sexuality, and pleasure. This conversation fits into a larger genealogy—one that includes scholarship on black feminisms ... Read More

  • Rethinking the Human: Anti-Respectability and Blackhood
    • Abstract: From the outset, we might consider respectability as a historical instrument of control. The social effort to control the pleasure derived from intimating with ourselves and others stands out in particular as polemics to white supremacy. Indeed, respectability hovers in and around Blackness, making and remaking the way we are envisioned in the collective racial imaginary. It continues to ask and re-ask us what we think of ourselves, what we digest as our own protocols of being, and how we reproduce these protocols for regulation of others. This essay interrogates respectability as an influence on categories of humanness and its contention with Blackhood. The meanings of "Black" are not only constructed by the ... Read More

  • Erotic Illegibility and Desire in Representations of Black Sexuality
    • Abstract: This essay engages our shared interest in the capriciousness of sexual expression and desire.1 By analyzing the discontinued WGN television series Underground (2016–17) as an ephemeral site for imagining black women's erotic interiority and theorizing black sexual desire as a scattered effect of the archive in Cheryl Dunye's film The Watermelon Woman (1996), we assert that rather than stifle desire, black sexuality enacts an elasticity as it negotiates white male power and respectability politics. Although black gendered and sexual difference appears illegible, it nonetheless reveals the sociosexual power relations of slavery, and even as it surfaces as erased, it articulates history making as a practice of ...

  • Whose Body Is This' On the Cultural Possibilities of a Radical Black
           Sexual Praxis
    • Abstract: "Whose body is this'" draws from a legacy of Black feminist and queer scholars posing this rhetorical question; I am thinking of bell hook's 1996 essay (on Spike Lee's She's Gotta Have It), "'Whose Pussy Is This' A Feminist Comment."1 In 2007 Herukhuti wrote "Whose Booty Is This' Barebacking, Advocacy, and the Right to Fuck,"2 an essay in response to the targeted policing of bodies and the sex of Black gay men as we confront the HIV/AIDS crisis in the United States. These rhetorical questions have for a long time been, and continue to be, critical questions confronting the Black studies intellectual and political project and the communities we study. These questions bring into focus the ways in which the US ... Read More

    • Abstract: Anti-respectability as method takes the form of what Christina Sharpe calls "undisciplining"—a process by which scholars develop new approaches, methods, and modes of inquiry that productively challenge disciplinary biases.1 The work of scholars including LaMonda Horton-Stallings and Marlon Bailey indexes the importance of employing Black queer feminist methodologies to examine critical queer geographies forged through a resistance to concretized space as central to community and vestiges of colonial capitalist anti-Black racial/sexual terror and the deauthorization of racial biological epistemes that overdetermine kinship practices, Black death, and pleasure.2 Our respective projects center Black transgender women ...

  • Pleasure Verses: A Five Element Set
    • Abstract: I offer five pleasure verses, which I define as nuanced expressions on a joypain continuum that emerge from collective work which SWINGS SLAPS and SUFFOCATES the status quo. These pleasure verses exemplify Midwestern erotic aesthetics of cold double negatives and I-will-show-you-how-I-heard-us pedagogies of impossibilities transformed by collective work that continually and continuously remakes Black girlhood through practice as praxis. These verses are a direct engagement with creative nonfiction, a pleasure of mine, and also an analytic of feeling Everywhere: worlds. Everywhere: Black girls.1In Listening to Images, Tina Campt wrote,I remain committed to a Black feminist praxis of futurity and the grammar of the ... Read More

  • Uncovering Black Girlhood(s): Black Girl Pleasures as Anti-respectability
           Methodology
    • Abstract: Black girlhood is a site of pleasure, often overlooked, yet visible to those committed to allowing Black girls to just be. It is through our varied work and training in Saving Our Lives, Hear Our Truths (SOLHOT) that we, the authors, are reminded and understand Black girls to be creators and innovators working from pleasure.1 Envisioned by Ruth Nicole Brown, SOLHOT, an intentional and intergenerational practice of Black girlhood celebration, creates space for middle-school-aged Black girls to be teachers and collaborators of freedom practices, presence, and what it requires to hold space and the weight of brilliance. Knowing how to create and hold space for Black girls is important because too often Black girls are ... Read More

  • (Dis)Respect, or When Blackness Is the Natural Object of Dissent
    • Abstract: There is a dialogue between the two musings that follow, a critical pondering born of a set of conversations between us. "How do we move blackness from an object of convenience to one of full-time dissent'" What began as an undergraduate mentee talking to his mentor became a critical dialogue about the state of black study and the possibilities available in the release of age-old "key terms." In our discussion we arrived at two primary points of interest, which we tried to interrogate in our keynote plenary remarks:how blackness itself is already a diss to respectable whiteness; therefore, our duty is to be intimate with a black study that understands refusal and resistance as proper objects and methods.how the ...

  • The Social Life of Speculation
    • Abstract: In the past two decades, scholarly and popular interest in speculative fiction has surged. Groundbreaking anthologies like Sheree Renée Thomas's Dark Matter: A Century of Speculative Fiction from the African Diaspora (2000) and Grace Dillon's Walking the Clouds: An Anthology of Indigenous Science Fiction (2012), as well as scholarship by Ramón Saldívar, Curtis Marez, Dillon, André M. Carrington, Donna Haraway, and others, deploy speculative fiction to address the interconnected histories and current realities of racism, heteropatriarchy, colonialism, and capitalism. The four books under review here showcase speculative fiction studies (or perhaps, more accurately, "speculative studies") as an emerging ... Read More

    • Abstract: Shadows enable us to orient an object in the world, evidence its edges and contours, its mass and weave.If you want to understand us, listen to what we are not allowed to say.Five recently released books in social movement and empire studies push us to better understand US Empire and anti-imperial mobilizations via the shadows and unspoken histories of international movement building. Through the analysis of novels, poetry, essays, public statements, newspapers, letters, newsletters, scholarly writing, and compilations of activist biographies and memoirs, the authors and editors reveal the imbricated and relational dimensions of anti-imperial expressions. In her essay "Insufficient Difference," Lisa Lowe uses the ... Read More

  • America's Areas
    • Abstract: Despite sanitized narration in the state's curricula, California's gold rush was a frenzied example of settler colonialism's extractive and genocidal impulses. As the streams ran out of gold and the land was all parceled out, the maiming and murder of Natives began apace. According to the historian Brendan Lindsay, the particular conditions of the gold rush meant that "California's Native population faced a genocidal assault perhaps unrivaled in North America in terms of its ferocity, bloodiness, and loss of human life."1 Like many of California's mid-nineteenth-century settlers, Horace Carpentier, the first mayor of the city he christened Oakland, California, had made his way west in search of that blood-stained ...

  • Slave Life at Thomas Jefferson's Monticello
    • Abstract: "My mother became Mr. Jefferson's concubine," Madison Hemings told a newspaper reporter in 1873, referring to his enslaved mother, Sarah "Sally" Hemings, and his father, Thomas Jefferson. For many years, historians were unaware of this interview or ignored it along with other evidence that gave credence to the eighteenth-century story. Today, in the twenty-first century, Madison shares his family's tale through a type of augmented reality exhibit at Monticello—Jefferson's plantation estate and historical landmark.1The Life of Sally Hemings exhibit, which opened in June 2018, presents Madison's words, projected in light, within the confines of a small cellar room under the south wing of Jefferson's ...

  • w3 wi11 ov3rf10w ur cistem g4t3s: The Hackers of Resistance
    • Abstract: The Hackers of Resistance, also known by the acronym HORs, are an elaborate cyberpunk, transfeminist, multimedia performance-art collective consisting of a semi-anonymous trio of queer women of color. The artists' personas are code-named FxDat69, Fragmint, and CherryChapo, and are characters based on the artists' own identities and personal interests. Created for "Animating the Archives: the Woman's Building," Hackers of Resistance is a diffuse project that interweaves multimedia performance art, comedy, and video games to craft a cathartic power fantasy that explores the realities of cis and trans women of color living within a neoliberal surveillance state. Taking place in an alternative universe, this ... Read More

  • Who We Were When the World Was Watching
    • Abstract: Americans' response to the assassination of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. in 1968 was both political and visceral. In cities across the United States, communities, especially African American communities, expressed their anger and grief in acts of protest both sanctioned and unsanctioned, organized and disorganized. In many places, civil disturbances at times turned violent, and in Baltimore this resulted in six deaths, dozens of injuries, and the destruction of hundreds of public and private properties. Maryland governor Spiro Agnew ordered in thousands of National Guard troops, who were joined by US Army soldiers deployed by President Lyndon B. Johnson. The nation, and the world, watched as events unfolded in ... Read More

  • Stories of the City: Newark, Newest Americans, and Hyperlocal Forms of
           Digital Public Humanities
    • Abstract: Newest Americans introduces itself as a digital project telling "Stories from the Global City."1 Institutionally supported by Rutgers University–Newark, the digital project aims to "generate fresh narratives and insights about our emerging minority majority population and the nation it is transforming."2 The tools it selects to tell these stories are multimodal: while Newest Americans borrows the structure and layout of a magazine, its features materialize in the forms of short documentary films, annotated digital maps, oral histories, spoken word poetry, blogs, graphic novels, and mixed-media mosaics. Its methodologies are invested in pluralities: its narratives are polyvocal, its images of place juxtapose ... Read More
