  • Introduction Biographic Mediation: On the Uses of Personal Disclosure in
           Bureaucracy and Politics
    • Abstract: I used to collect lottery tickets thrown into the gutter next to a convenience store in East Oakland. Because I lived across the street, I picked up abandoned tickets daily. I would carefully place them in photo albums, fascinated by a dozen different ticket designs competing for the attention of customers staring through plexiglass. Bright green dollar signs. Pots of gold. A Monopoly baron with a cane dancing down a yellow brick road. All scratched according to style, some were completely exposed by a coin or key. Others barely revealed mismatched numbers. The California lottery was a novelty when I was young, introduced in the mid-80s as a ballot measure to raise money for schools without raising taxes.1 The ... Read More

You click the box and a whole other process starts up. So, [state university] wanted a brief explanation, [including] the legal documents and then further explanation.1Legal documents' What documents did they require'It was an arrest report that they wanted. Really, really hard to find. You know, a 198— arrest report. They wanted the actual sentencing … from the court where the judge read it off, or other times they want the state police record that shows any charges that you have. I have one. I've [also] had to get verification that I was fully discharged…. [The admissions administrator ... Read More

  • A Complaint Biography
    • Abstract: The following essay originally appeared as a blog entry on Sara Ahmed's public research site, Feminist Killjoys. Ahmed is a feminist phenomenologist and independent scholar who has turned her attention toward institutional life. Her book On Being Included: Racism and Diversity in Institutional Life (2012) blends qualitative interviewing techniques with a materialist analysis of public relations messaging and paperwork designed to manage diversity and racism. Following this work, she founded the research blog to invite public engagement on the essays and lectures that would form Living a Feminist Life (2017), which explores the source of feminist concepts and critique in everyday life. The blog seeded a related book ... Read More

  • Lives on the Line
    • Abstract: As I prepared to edit this special issue, I knew I would ask Aly Wane to participate in the workshop the journal convened in August 2018 on Biographic Mediation. He is an undocumented organizer with the Syracuse Peace Council. His interviews about migrants' rights and the specific vulnerabilities that Black undocumented immigrants face are notable for challenging the horizon of citizenship as a goal for organizing (Jaffe). Part of the community that formed the UndocuBlack Network in 2016, Wane highlights stories of Black immigrant experiences while deflecting calls for the "good immigrant" narrative that tacitly endorses racialized policing to achieve access for a few. He consistently asks how the pursuit of narrow ... Read More

  • The Securitate File as a Record of Psuchegraphy
    • Abstract: In the 1960s, Romanian theologian and former political prisoner Antonie Plamadeala drafted a manuscript describing his experience with the Securitate, the Romanian secret police, and the terror of being under surveillance. Plamadeala wrote his story in the guise of a novel, Trei Ceasuri în Iad [Three Hours in Hell], in which he also sought to describe the dread and fear he felt in the Romania of the 1950s and 1960s to the point of confusion, losing grasp on reality, and eventually losing touch with his authentic self. As Plamadeala wrote in a 1964 letter addressed to his friends, the human being under communism is "obliged to simulate to the maximum, until he gets to think that he no longer is subject to ...

  • Guidelines for Squatting: Concerned Citizens of North Camden,
           1978–1990
    • Abstract: On Friday, September 14, 1979, the New Northeast Elementary School in Camden, New Jersey closed early. The children and the teaching staff were sent home by midday so that the building could be fumigated, especially the kindergarten classrooms. Fleas were biting the children; the fleas (and their companion rats) were breeding in the vacant houses surrounding the school. The city's response coupled fumigation and demolition, ordering the school's fumigation and the demolition of a Byron Street vacant house, located some six blocks away and believed to be the source of this "rodent problem." When thirty local residents, organized as part of the grassroots advocacy organization Concerned Citizens of North Camden ... Read More

  • Frames of Witness: The Kavanaugh Hearings, Survivor Testimony, and #MeToo
    • Abstract: Tarana Burke began using the phrase "me too" as part of a campaign in 2006 to support girls and women of color in underserved communities who were victims of sexual abuse and intimate partner violence. A decade before the viral hashtag #MeToo galvanized a new moment of global witness, Burke, a community organizer and civil rights activist, founded the organization the hashtag cites, and grounded a movement to promote empowerment through empathy in survivor self-identification. #MeToo was shared twelve million times on social media in the first twenty-four hours after actor Alyssa Milano quoted it in a tweet. Yet at the same moment Burke saw her work validated by the global uptake of #MeToo, her contribution to ... Read More

           History of African Americans at Clemson University
    • Abstract: It is not well to forget the past. Memory was given to man for some wise purpose. The past is … the mirror in which we may discern the dim outlines of the future and by which we may make them more symmetrical.Frederick DouglassIn October of 1891, Wade Foster, a thirteen-year-old African American boy, was forced to work at the South Carolina Experimental Farm, site of the new Clemson Agricultural College of South Carolina that would open in 1893 for white young men. Clemson Agricultural College was built mostly by the state's incarcerated laborers on John C. Calhoun's former Fort Hill Plantation and was established in the will of Calhoun's son-in-law Thomas Green Clemson. A few weeks earlier, Foster had been found ... Read More

           of Rape Culture
    • Abstract: Amita Swadhin is the founder of Mirror Memoirs, a national storytelling and organizing project featuring the narratives, healing, and leadership of LGBTQI+ people of color who survived child sexual abuse. Recently, they completed sixty audio interviews for a growing archive that brings storytelling to bear on our understanding of how institutional spaces designated for "help" sustain child sexual assault. Working through the theme of this special issue, Swadhin reflects on biographic mediation as a mechanism operating within Mirror Memoirs, explaining how the collection of "inconvenient" stories about survivorship can help transform institutional practices of profiling that disappear the most vulnerable targets of ...

  • The Consumption of Adoption and Adoptees in American Middlebrow Culture
    • Abstract: Fraudulent practices are intertwined with modern adoption. From its early beginnings, and the rise of black market and gray market adoptions (Winslow), to coercive unethical practices to encourage birth mothers to relinquish their children (Siegal; Joyce), adoption cannot be understood simply as a benevolent practice of family formation. Modern adoption involves obscuring the biological biographical details of the adoptee (e.g., sealed birth records in domestic adoption; preventing adoptees from reviewing their full file in international adoption) (Modell; Terrell and Modell; Berebitsky; Herman), as well as other methods to make children more marketable in the adoption economy (Riben; McKee, "Monetary Flows"; ...

  • (Un)Reasonable, (Un)Necessary, and (In)Appropriate: Biographic Mediation
           of Neurodivergence in Academic Accommodations
    • Abstract: At forty-four, I was diagnosed with autism and with attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) (inattentive type). My emerging interest in disability studies— part of my ongoing research into social justice activism in personal online life narratives and collective action through social media—suddenly became more personally salient than expected. Since then, I have, sometimes tentatively and sometimes confidently, begun to explore and assert my identity as a disabled scholar on academic and public Twitter, in closed-membership Facebook groups for adults with ADHD and for women with autism, in person among friends, and in public in the context of advocating for accommodations for my autistic daughter and ...
