  • In Memoriam
    • Abstract: We are saddened to receive the news of the passing of Murray Griffin Murphey, Professor of History Emeritus at the University of Pennsylvania and former editor of American Quarterly, on December 6, 2018.Murphey was one of the key founders of the field of American studies. Born in Colorado Springs, Colorado, in 1928, Murphey earned his BA from Harvard, studying with C. I. Lewis, Perry Miller, and Arthur Schlesinger Jr. After earning a PhD in American studies at Yale in 1954, he held a two-year Rockefeller Fellowship at the University of Pennsylvania, one of the first universities to have a Department of American Civilization. He was subsequently appointed an assistant professor in the department, where he moved up ... Read More

  • Editor’s Note
    • Abstract: At the ASA annual meeting in Atlanta in November 2018, Roderick Ferguson delivered a moving narrative of his family history in rural Georgia, intellectual coming of age and political awakening, and the emergence of his understanding of black nationalism, internationalism, and feminist and queer formations. This presidential address takes us to the site of a heterogeneous, mixed population of Native and black people whose relationships to each other and to the land were apprehended by the logics of settler colonialism and racial capitalism. It also points to the power of education—intellectual, creative, political, social—that charts the long and careful journey to equality and freedom. It calls on us to activate ... Read More

We pay respect to elders past and present and to the ancestors who labored for us and who watch over us. Ashe.I bring you greetings from Barbara Ransby down the street. She sends this message to us: “The 2018 ASA program is exciting, provocative and generative. Please know that we have been inspired by your theme of Emergence. In parallel time, under the rubric of ‘Just Imagine, Imagining Justice,’ we will be discussing, debating and wrestling with some of the very same issues as you. Daily news headlines remind us that we live in dire and unstable times, replete with danger and ripe with possibilities. Let’s accept the challenge and ... Read More

  • To Hear the Call and Respond: Grounded Relationalities and the Spaces of
           Emergence
    • Abstract: In his 2018 presidential address, Roderick Ferguson gives us a vision for the American Studies Association that not only activates radical traditions but places them within the temporal, spatial, and sonic cacophonies of the land and histories, the stories and songs, from which they emerge. Entangling his own familial genealogies with the intellectual and literary antecedents that shaped the Georgia that shaped him, Ferguson offers us a windowed reflection on the now-required reading practices through which to make meaning in Donald Trump’s America, where truth has finally lost its grip and resistance often reinscribes the racial regimes instantiated by ongoing settler colonialism. With eyes on the classed ... Read More

  • Movement and Time: A Diasporic Response to Grounded Light
    • Abstract: En nuestras cosmovisiones, somos seres surgidos de la tierra, el agua, y el maiz.Christina Sharpe situates her most recent book in terms of the lived experiences of her family with death. Much of the beginning of In the Wake: On Blackness and Being reads as a deliberate archaeology of interment. This propels Sharpe, drawing from Saidiya Hartman and Patricia J. Saunders, toward an “analytic” for Black scholars that might resist the exigencies of fields and disciplines whose teleological capacity to reproduce objective existence is antagonistic to the unfolding of Black life as life itself. Too often, she says,we are expected to discard, discount, disregard, jettison, abandon, and measure those ways of knowing and to ... Read More

  • Introduction: Defiant Memory Work
    • Abstract: On a hot Chicago summer day in 1919, a Black child, Eugene Williams, was murdered by a white man while they were swimming at Lake Michigan’s Twenty-Ninth Street beach. The child, floating in the cool water, drifted across an invisible line that separated white from Black swimmers and maintained the city’s racial apartheid in all leisure activities, as everywhere else. And over the five days of violence that followed, a short week of killings during the long “Red Summer,” in the words of James Weldon Johnson, a poet and activist, of attacks on Black people across the United States, in Chicago thirty-eight people died (twenty-three Black, fifteen white) and hundreds were injured.1Nearly one hundred years later, these ...

  • Resilience and Power: Learning with Communities through Art
    • Abstract: But the role of imagination is not to resolve, not to point the way, not to improve. It is to awaken, to disclose the ordinarily unseen, unheard, and unexpected.On Sunday mornings in Tonala, Jalisco, Mexico, my parents would take my sister, Liliana, and me to the tianguis, an outdoor market where people from the surrounding area would come to buy and sell goods. We walked slowly through the narrow walkways as people navigated the bustling streets filled with temporary makeshift stands and boldly painted stucco-covered storefronts. Our senses were awakened by the immense array of bright colors found in handmade and factory textiles, rough earth-toned ceramics with smooth glazed patterns, and flower and landscape ... Read More

    • Abstract: The Museum of Transgender Hirstory & Art reimagines the confines of an institution and delves into the historical archive carving out stories of gender transgressions and performative interventions.1 Chris E. Vargas, the founder and artist behind MOTHA, activates the archive by listening for what exists within the silence and erasure of our queer and trans artist of color histories. In our conversation,2 we shared our experiences engaging different archives and collections, some in libraries and cultural institutions, others under our beds and in our closets. Many of us are not documented in the archive due to systemic oppressions, but I’m entranced by how agency can exist in holding our own archives and conjuring ... Read More

  • Grievability and Nuclear Memory
    • Abstract: Without grievability, there is no life, or, rather, there is something living that is other than life. Instead, “there is a life that will never have been lived,” sustained by no regard, no testimony, and ungrieved when lost. The apprehension of grievability precedes and makes possible the apprehension of precarious life.Since 1945, nuclear weapons have been tested on all continents except for South America and Antarctica. Although “it is the nature of bombing to be indiscriminate,”1 Aboriginal, Indigenous, and First Nations people have been the disproportionate victims of these weapons. They also continue to face nuclear waste dumps, uranium mines, and other nuclear projects on their land. This radioactive ... Read More

  • Boyle Heights and the Fight against Gentrification as State Violence
    • Abstract: The history of the Boyle Heights neighborhood of Los Angeles is a chronicle of Los Angelinos struggling against all odds to build community. Over generations, Jewish, African American, Mexican, and Japanese people were pushed to become one community in Boyle Heights, through racially restrictive covenants banning property sales to people of color. Boyle Heights is now a predominantly Mexican neighborhood with a history of anticapitalist, antiracist resistance: against the Vietnam War, against the gang and crack epidemics, against state brutality. This is the place where the coalition of antiwar Chicano activists including the Chicano Moratorium and the “Brown Berets” (who organized student walkouts in the late ... Read More

    • Abstract: Founded in 1961 by Dr. Margaret Burroughs, an educator, activist, and art historian, Chicago’s DuSable Museum has gone through various incarnations over its history but has always been an institution by and for the African American community. An actively collecting institution, the museum has over fifteen thousand objects, as well as an expansive archive. The objects in the museum’s collections span the range of African and African American history, from the transatlantic slave trade to the present, and include documents, correspondences, artworks, and publications. In 2017–18 I worked with a recent gift to the museum in need of processing and research: a nearly complete run of the magazine BLK, given to the ... Read More

    • Abstract: Email print-out, 2009. Courtesy of Noelle GarciaIn 2011 I created an exhibition titled What You Left Me, at the Clark County Cultural Center. I showcased photographs, artifacts, and documents that told the story of my dad. Or rather the exhibit told the story of my research on my father and my understanding of where he fit into the history of the United States of America. I exhibited his private documents, his letters, photos of him posing with his prison baseball team, and family portraits shot in a Nevada prison visiting area. One of the most important artifacts was a printout of an email I received from the Nevada Department of Corrections that described the crime my father committed that landed him in prison. ...

They focus on a 2015 visual art exhibition and performance called Disability Liberated as a robust example of defiant memory practices.The interview explores Berne’s arts-based resistance work grounded in disability justice, focusing on the process and production of Disability Liberated, which coincided with the release of the book Disability Incarcerated and a corresponding conference that revolved around the incarceration of disabled people.1 The Disability Liberated project exhibited defiant memory practices and recognized ...

  • The Syrian of Sleepy Lagoon: Ethnic Coalitions and Archival Silence
    • Abstract: October can still be very hot in Los Angeles. Add to the heat the nicotine habit of many of those present at the trial of People vs. Zammora in the fall of 1942, and one begins to sense the insalubrious state of Judge Charles W. Fricke’s courtroom.1 The trial that quickly came to be known as the Sleepy Lagoon murder trial, in which twenty-one young Mexican American men and one Anglo man were tried en masse for the murder of twenty-two-year-old José Diaz—fueling tensions that erupted in the Zoot Suit riots in 1943—has been written about from various angles and dramatized in a 1978 play by the Chicano playwright Luis Valdez and in the 1981 film starring Edward James Olmos, Tyne Daly, and others.2There is a rich and ...

  • Ray Charles in Paris: Race, Protest, and the Soundscape of the Algerian
           War
    • Abstract: In late October 1961, Ray Charles gave six electrifying, sold-out performances at the Palais des Sports in Paris. Although Charles had been relatively unknown in France just a few years earlier, this concert series attracted a record-breaking thirty-five thousand attendees, leading one French critic to proclaim it an unprecedented triumph that Louis Armstrong himself could not have imagined.1 After speculating that the “wildly enthusiastic” crowd would have been “jitterbugging in the aisles” had the promoters not filled them with seats, the New York Times dubbed Charles the “Pied Piper” of jazz in France.2 Charles’s triumphant debut in Paris, however, came close to being canceled altogether. Until the eve of the ... Read More

In a complex and sorrowful analysis, Fulton said that initially the verdict came as “a complete shock,” as she was sure that the jury would see her son as “an average teenager that was minding his own business, that wasn’t committing any crime, that was coming home from the store, and were feet away from where he was actually going.”1 And yet, she says, “when I heard the verdict, I kind of understand the disconnect. And that maybe they didn’t see Trayvon as their son. They didn’t see Trayvon as a teenager. They didn’t see Trayvon ... Read More

  • Sensing Intruders: Race and the Automation of Border Control
    • Abstract: For two straight days, Sensor No. 139 sent radio signals to the Border Patrol’s station in San Ysidro, California. A light flashed intermittently, as if someone or something activated it. To Border Patrol agents, the sensor’s uninterrupted activation was a clear sign that it was malfunctioning. The light for Sensor No. 103, by contrast, was off when it suddenly turned on. Data of its activation were automatically recorded on a magnetic tape back at sector headquarters, where a desk officer radioed the nearest patrol car. “Minutes later,” James P. Sterba wrote in the New York Times in 1973, “three Mexicans, attempting to sneak into the United States, were tracked down and caught as a result of the electronic ... Read More

  • Always Already Military: Police, Public Safety, and State Violence
    • Abstract: Police militarization has been much in the limelight in the 2010s thanks to protests over police killings of young Black women and men: Eric Garner, Tamir Rice, Walter Scott, Freddie Gray, Sandra Bland, Akai Gurley, Tony Robinson, Philando Castile, and so many more unacceptable losses. The brutality the police bring to their interactions with protestors or people simply going about their business is striking, and many have interpreted it as the result of a process of militarization, which they strongly condemn.1 Some presume police militarization to be but “decades” old, harking back to September 11, 2001, that favored pivot-point for so many things, as in “the security-über-alles fixation of the 9/11 era is now ...

  • Poor Influences and Criminal Locations: Los Angeles’s Skid Row,
           Multicultural Identities, and Normal Homosexuality
    • Abstract: In 1984 Los Angeles’s skid row stood in the shadow of a new financial district, shrouded among large warehouse districts and hemmed in by freeways and the Los Angeles River (see fig. 1). Since the 1880s, and especially after sprawl dispersed populations farther from downtown after World War II, skid row’s density of single residency occupancy hotels (SROs), taxi dance halls, and nearby rail yards made it a secluded haven for so-called vagrants, ex-offenders, addicts, prostitutes, and the mentally disabled. It was precisely the neighborhood that politicians did not want tourists to see while the city hosted the 1984 Summer Olympics, an international sporting event at the center of efforts to rebrand the city from ...

  • Licensing Citizenship: Anti-Blackness, Identification Documents, and
           Transgender Studies
    • Abstract: In late January 1939 the Chicago Branch Office of the NAACP sent a protest letter to the Illinois secretary of state, Edward J. Hughes, calling for the immediate elimination of the category of race on driver’s licenses. A few months before, in July 1938, after a fierce political battle between urban and rural legislators, Illinois had adopted statewide license laws.1 On their face, these laws made no mention of race, mandating only that a “brief description of the applicant” appear on the new paper cards. However, as soon as the law was actually implemented, would-be drivers found themselves forced to select membership in one of five racial groups: “the Indian, the Caucasian, the Mongolian, the African, [or] the ...
