  • Sensing Through Slowness: Korean Americans and the Un/making of the Home
           Film Archive
    • Abstract: In the opening scene, two women appear before the camera. Adorned in a bright red dress, the younger of the two grabs the hand of the older woman as they shyly walk toward the filmmaker. Joined by two lanky young men and a young girl dressed in a simple black frock, everyone laughs as they enjoy popsicles. Within twenty seconds, the frame jumps to a different sequence of scenes. In the unfolding imagery, an older woman and adolescent girl pluck pink roses from a front lawn as they greet a young man in front of the house. Gesturing to the camera, the older woman teases the young man as she playfully pushes him off the porch.Captured on 8-mm color film shot during the early 1950s, this silent footage was taken by ...

  • A Case Study of Racial Exclusion and Incarceration in the Midwest:
           Illinois before the Carceral State
    • Abstract: Outrage over the 2014 police killings of Michael Brown near St. Louis and Laquan McDonald in Chicago triggered waves of protest against police mistreatment of African Americans. Demonstrations under the banner of "Black Lives Matter" have been fueled by video footage of police killings and the exoneration of police in the rare instances in which such killings have been brought to trial. These two flashpoints of the current movement—Ferguson, Missouri, and a peripheral neighborhood of Chicago near Cicero, Illinois—are not arbitrary. They are part of a struggle over the station of black citizens in the Midwest that goes back to the colonial settlement of the region and the struggle over slavery. Tracing the ... Read More

  • Inscrutable Grief: Memorializing Japanese American Internment in Miné
           Okubo's Citizen 13660
    • Abstract: During and after World War II, Japanese Americans occupied a precarious position within the United States.1 After Pearl Harbor, rumors of fifth column conspiracies proliferated, and anti-Japanese sentiments quickly escalated. This tense situation culminated on February 19, 1942, when President Roosevelt signed Executive Order 9066, giving the government the right to create military exclusion zones and paved the way to the internment of enemy aliens on the West Coast. More than 110,000 Japanese Americans were interned. Roughly two-thirds were United States citizens.The losses of those affected by internment were great. Forced to quickly leave their homes, most had to abandon, destroy, or sell (at greatly deflated ... Read More

  • Can Islam Be Satirized' Celeb Jihad's "Explosive Celebrity Gossip" and
           the Divide between Islam and Mainstream American Culture
    • Abstract: The Selena Gomez nipple parade continues as she once again walks the streets of New York City in a sheer top with no bra on in the photos below. What the hell does this Mexican skank have against bras' While us Muslims would certainly prefer to see women like Selena in thick black wool burkas (or better yet on the ground crumbled in a heap after a lapidation), we can at least tolerate ones (for now) that wear undergarments and do not just allow their sex organs to be out flapping in the breeze like Selena is doing in these picsThe above epigraph exemplifies the crass satirical commentary of celebrity gossip website Celebjihad.com, which reports its news as if written by Islamist fundamentalist extremists.

  • Destroyer of Confidence: James Gordon Bennett, Jacksonian Paranoia, and
           the Original Confidence Man
    • Abstract: Zachary Taylor's 1849 inaugural address began, "The confidence and respect shown by my countrymen in calling me to be the Chief Magistrate of a Republic holding a high rank among the nations of the earth have inspired me with feelings of the most profound gratitude." With his opening invocation of confidence, Taylor echoes two tropes characteristic of Jacksonian presidential rhetoric. First, confidence signifies the democratic mandate that empowers the executive branch. William Henry Harrison ended his marathon address by emphasizing the "entire confidence" he shared with "a just and generous people" in his ability to "discharge the high duties of [his] exalted station." This latter phrase, like Taylor's "high rank ... Read More

  • Dirty Harry's America: Clint Eastwood, Harry Callahan, and the
           Conservative Backlash by Joe Street (review)
    • Abstract: On August 30, 2012, Clint Eastwood addressed a wildly enthusiastic crowd on the final day of the Republican National Convention in Tampa, Florida. Eastwood's bizarre conversation with an empty chair representing Barack Obama attracted the most media attention in the days that followed. But equally intriguing were the speech's opening and closing remarks, which repeated two phrases famously used by Eastwood's best-known cinematic character, "Dirty Harry" Callahan. Eastwood's first words—after thanking the crowd—were "I know what you are thinking," which references his taunting a bank robber who isn't sure if Callahan fired five or six shots with his .44 Magnum handgun in Dirty Harry (1971). Eastwood's ended his ... Read More

  • Martyrs Mirror: A Social History by David L. Weaver-Zercher (review)
    • Abstract: Though the demographics of worldwide Anabaptism—a Christian movement that rejects infant baptism and its historic connection to citizenship in a state in favor of adult baptism and the divorcing of church and state—have shifted to South America, Asia, and Africa, their historic roots are in the Netherlands. It was here, in the 1660, that Thieleman J. van Braght published Martyrs Mirror, stories of Christian martyrdom from the time of Jesus. Also known as The Bloody Theater, the books takes nearly 2000 pages to cover the stories of the apostles, early Christians, and those who were coming to identify as Anabaptists in the 1500 and 1600s. Approximately 2500 early Anabaptists embraced martyrdom at the hands of both ... Read More

  • Origins of the Dream: Hughes's Poetry and King's Rhetoric by W. Jason
           Miller (review)
    • Abstract: In a meticulous combination of close reading, biblical exegesis, and literary analysis, W. Jason Miller, in Origins of the Dream: Hughes's Poetry and King's Rhetoric, offers an intriguing reinterpretation of Langston Hughes by demonstrating the influence Hughes's poetry exerted on the rhetoric of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Miller focuses on the metaphor of the dream, which, in his formulation, derives principally from three of Hughes's poems: "Youth," "I Dream a World," and "A Dream Deferred." King, according to this argument, rewrote, revised, recycled, paraphrased, alluded to, rewrote, merged voices, and sampled Hughes's works for the thematic and rhetorical force to embellish his own sermons and speeches. The ... Read More

  • Tourist Attractions: Performing Race and Masculinity in Brazil's Sexual
           Economy by Gregory Mitchell (review)
    • Abstract: Tourist Attractions offers the reader an intimate look at American men who travel to Brazil in search of commercial sex with straight butch men. Conducting ethnographic fieldwork for more than 16 months between 2005 and 2016, in Rio, Manaus, and Bahia, Mitchell combines anthropological theory and performance studies to disentangle the sexual economy in this transnational mirror cabinet of racialized sexual desires and "commissioned performances." In the burgeoning literature on global sex tourism, gay sex tourism has received much less attention. Tourist Attractions provides a powerful contribution to the small number of studies on gay sex tourism in Latin America, adding profound insights into the affective and ... Read More

  • From #BlackLivesmatter to Black Liberation by Keeanga-Yamahtta Taylor
           (review)
    • Abstract: Similar to Herbert Marcuse's An Essay on Liberation (1969), Keeanga-Yamahtta Taylor's latest contribution is a timely and much needed intervention. Both intellectually rigorous and accessible, From #BlackLivesMatter to Black Liberation is a historical exposition of the conditions that contributed to the reemergence of Black radicalism in the United States. It is also a persuasive case that #BLM's fight against racism must also be a fight against capitalism.In chapter one, Taylor looks at the mutually reinforcing ideas of American exceptionalism and "culture of poverty." Through a meticulous analysis of public policy and political rhetoric, she explains that the manufactured connection between Black poverty and ... Read More

  • Cool Characters: Irony and American Fiction by Lee Konstantinou (review)
    • Abstract: In this timely and well-researched monograph, Lee Konstantinou (University of Maryland, College Park) offers a literary history of irony in post-World War II U.S. fiction. Rather than opting to treat irony as just a "trope or figure," Konstantinou (invoking Randolph Bourne) implements a "characterological approach" that illustrates how irony might also be construed as "a life, a specific (often oppositional and critical) way of being in and interpreting the world" (xi). Dividing the book into five sections that correspond to distinct "characterological types" that he identifies as emerging since 1945—the Hipster; the Punk; the Believer; the Coolhunter; the Occupier—Konstantinou seeks to chart the "transition from ...

  • Desis Divided: The Political Lives of South Asian Americans by Sangay K.
           Mishra (review)
    • Abstract: Sangay Mishra's book breaks new ground in South Asian American studies because he moves beyond the work of earlier scholars such as Vijay Mishra, Kamala Visweswaran, Monisha Das Gupta who had critiqued the model minority discourse used to frame the experiences of South Asian Americans. Mishra builds on this earlier work but provides a systematic analysis of the divergences and schisms within the ethnic group to study how this immigrant community has mobilized politically in recent years and in particular post 9/11. Based on interviews with South Asians in New York city and Los Angeles as well as analysis of national data from the 2000–2001 Pilot Study of the National Asian American Political Survey and the 2008 ...

  • My Dear Boy: Carrie Hughes's Letters to Langston Hughes 1926–1938 eds.
           by Carmaletta Williams and John Tidwell (review)
    • Abstract: The mother-daughter relationship is said to be one that often is fraught with complexities. The relationship that Carrie Hughes had with her son, renowned poet and author, Langston Hughes, demonstrates that the mother-son relationship too, can have major complexities. In My Dear Boy: Carrie Hughes's Letters to Langston Hughes 1926–1938 editors Carmaletta M. Williams and John Edgar Tidwell present a collection of Carrie's letters to her son over the course of 12 years at the beginning of the 20th century. The goal they outline is to do that which has yet to be done: "probe her [Carrie Hughes's] collected letter for their own integrity or the significance they hold for Langston's aesthetic development and output" ...

    • Abstract: Graphic Borders is a welcome collection of essays for anyone interested in the intersection of Latino studies and Popular Culture. Editors Frederick Luis Aldama and Christopher González—who have literally written the book on Latino comics and popular culture-- bring together 13 articles and one interview, organized into five cleverly titled sections: "Alternativas", "Cuerpo Comics", "Tortilla Strips", "A Bird, a Plane … Straight and Queer Super Lats", and "Multiverses, Admixtures, and More". The result is a collection that is critically astute and timely, and moreover is simply fun to read.As the title of the text suggests, Graphic Borders, is a collection that is critically aware of itself as positioned in a ...

  • Plagiarama! William Wells Brown and the Aesthetic of Attractions by
           Geoffrey Sanborn (review)
    • Abstract: Geoffrey Sanborn's Plagiarama! William Wells Brown and the Aesthetic of Attractions is a valuable addition to American literary criticism. Sanborn introduces William Wells Brown, the author of Clotel (1853), the first novel published by an African-American. Sanborn presents Brown as if the text were an autobiography, first as an author, abolitionist, and opponent of Frederick Douglass. Sanborn blends Brown's authorship and abolitionist background seamlessly into a critical narrative of the widespread plagiarism found throughout his work. Sanborn's data collection identifies 87,000 instances of plagiarism in a canon of nearly 300 written works. Sanborn contends that the plagiarism was a clever, intentional ... Read More

  • Fish Sticks, Sports Bras, and Aluminum Cans: The Politics of Everyday
           Technologies by Paul R. Josephson (review)
    • Abstract: Paul R. Josephson's Fish Sticks, Sports Bras, and Aluminum Cans is intended to be "engaging and readable," not "deeply theoretical" (4), enabling it to serve as "a textbook for a high school or college course" concerned about "the place of technology in the modern world" (5). His central argument is that "we cannot look at objects in isolation, but must consider the messy interaction of engineering, scientific, financial, governmental, consumer, and social institutions in giving impetus—or creating obstacles—to the dissemination of technology, and [that] we must recognize all of the actors involved in their history" (4). The first part of the claim would be banal if not for the kind of audience imagined for the ... Read More

  • Terrorizing Latina/o Immigrants: Race, Gender, And Immigration Politics in
           The Age of Security by Anna Sampaio (review)
    • Abstract: Anna Sampaio's Terrorizing Latina/o Immigrants: Race, Gender, And Immigration Politics in the Age of Security provides a comprehensive and engaging analysis of how Latina/o immigrants exist in a paradox: in that, they are portrayed as terrorists by a nation that in fact terrorizes them.While steeped in contemporary concerns about the enforcement policies of such agencies as the Department of Homeland Security (DHS), the Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE), and the Citizenship and Immigration Services (CIS), the book effectively links these phenomena with the nation's history of dealing with Latina/o persons, beginning with the Guadalupe Hidalgo Treaty, which created the U.S.-Mexico border we know today, up ...

  • City of Inmates: Conquest, Rebellion, and the Rise of Human Caging in Los
           Angeles, 1771–1965 by Kelly Lytle Hernandez (review)
    • Abstract: Lytle Hernandez's Cities of Inmates: Conquest, Rebellion, and the Rise of Human Caging in Los Angeles is a study of the rise of imprisonment, broadly speaking, and the buildup of Los Angeles's prison system, which by 1950 was the largest of any US city. The book makes significant contributions to US history, urban history, the study of race and ethnicity, and carceral history. Incarceration is foundational to Los Angeles; the city was literally built by convict labor, which was perfectly legal under the Thirteenth Amendment's dual provisions of ending black slavery while allowing the use of unfree labor as criminal punishment. As a scholar exploring race as a relational concept, I am fascinated by Lytle Hernandez's ... Read More

  • Race and Retail: Consumption Across The Color Line eds. by Mia Bay and Ann
           Fabian (review)
    • Abstract: Over recent years, the phrase "shopping while black" has entered common parlance to describe the experience of being denied service, being given poor service, or being racially profiled in a retail setting. Indeed, the prevalence of misplaced accusations of theft by department store officials against black customers prompted a number of prominent retailers such as Bloomingdale's and Macy's to introduce a "Customer Bill of Rights" in 2013. The Bill outlined a commitment to "ensuring that all shoppers, guests, and employees are treated with respect and dignity and are free from unreasonable searches, profiling, and discrimination of any kind in our store." While this initiative has been dismissed by detractors as a ... Read More

  • Black Mosaic: The Politics of Black Pan-Ethnic Diversity by Candis Watts
           Smith (review)
    • Abstract: The 2010 United States Census featured the racial category of "Black or African American" and talk of the "Black vote" is a regular feature of American election coverage. Like any socially constructed, instrumental racial category, "Black" has its limitations as globalization and migration flows from Africa, Latin America, and the Caribbean continue to complicate what "Blackness" means in the United States. Political scientist Candis Watts Smith's Black Mosaic takes on the necessary and considerable task of examining the nuances within this sweeping racial category by posing these core questions:"Considering the fact that ethnicity continues to be a salient identity within a racialized context, how do African ...

  • Atomics in the Classroom: Teaching the Bomb in the Early Postwar Era by
           Michael Scheibach (review)
    • Abstract: Books on American culture during the early Cold War are numerous, but one sorely neglected aspect of this culture was the integration of nuclear issues into the curricula of American schools. There has been significant scholarship on the teaching of Civil Defense concepts in schools, but these have largely failed to place those teaching modules into the larger context of postwar education. Michael Scheibach's book takes a more holistic look at "atomics" in American schools during the early postwar period, from 1945 to the early 1960s. Scheibach's book is rich in source material and each chapter includes a primary document in its entirety at the end of the chapter. Scheibach makes abundantly clear that the advent of ... Read More

  • In Memoriam: Stuart Levine
    • Abstract: Stuart G. Levine was many things: educator, scholar, writer, editor, musician. I encountered him late in his life and career, and he introduced himself as the founder of the American Studies Department at the University of Kansas, where, at the time, I was a graduate student. As luck would have it, I had recently been tasked with researching the history of the American Studies Department by its then-chair Cheryl B. Lester. Levine and I visited in person twice about his role in developing American studies as a field of study at KU and in the region and his editorship of American Studies. In addition to my conversations with Levine and others intimately familiar with American studies on campus and in the region, I ... Read More
