  • When Blood Won't Tell: Integrated Transfusions and Shifting Foundations of
           Race
    • Abstract: On May 29, 1956, nurses climbed aboard USS Lake Champlain to collect a thousand pints of crew member blood. A US military photographer was on hand to document the event, not because blood drives were rare but rather to spotlight a marked change. In the single shot selected for print, the photographer captured the moment of exchange between a white nurse and the only African American navy man in line [Figure 1]. The image was part of a series of military photographs taken during the 1950s intended to chronicle an integrated army. However, despite the photographer's objective to offer visual evidence of purportedly seamless racial integration, the image could not contain the awkwardness of that blood drive. To keep ...

  • Traveling Yellow Peril: Race, Gender, and Empire in Japan's English
           Teaching Industry
    • Abstract: Chris, a 42-year-old white man from the U.S. West Coast, had been living in Japan for eight years when I spoke with him. During our three-hour semistructured interview he described a long line of bad luck, marked most memorably by a rocky U.S.-based employment record and a history of run-ins with the Japanese police. Despite these setbacks, he had recently been offered a lucrative, direct-hire, English teaching position by a local public school district. When marveling about his stroke of good luck, Chris presented a vision that was to reappear throughout my fieldwork with U.S. citizens working in Japan's English teaching industry: the specter of Filipino labor threat. In his own words:This job . . . two hundred ... Read More

  • A Children's History of (Native) America: The Tales of Peter Parley, about
           America
    • Abstract: I hope my little readers will learn this story, so that they can tell it all without the book.In 1830 the Indian Removal Act passed the Jackson White House, forcing indigenous peoples of the Southeast into territories west, past the Mississippi River. The act came into being after years of legislative debates over Indian treaties, projecting onto the river all the significations of a political border–a physical division between nations and races. In one of many examples, James Barbour in a House debate in 1828 argues "that the plan of collecting the Indians on suitable lands West of the Mississippi, contains the elements of their preservation," thus embedding the river in a legal codification of removal, exclusion ...

  • Performance in the Wartime Archive: Michio Ito at the Alien Enemy Hearing
           Board
    • Abstract: From the Report of the Alien Enemy Hearing Board, February 13, 1942.Courtesy of World War II Japanese Internee Cards, 1941–1947, The National Archives.The day after the bombing of Pearl Harbor, the recently formed Federal Bureau of Investigation ordered the incarceration of 770 Japanese and Japanese American "alien enemies."1 These arrests came two months before Executive Order 9066, which infamously called for the mass incarceration of 110,000 people of Japanese descent on the West Coast of the United States.2 Among these initial 770 alien enemies was the modernist dancer and choreographer Michio Ito. In the documents establishing his detention, the Alien Enemy Hearing Board found Ito to be "an artist of artistic ... Read More

  • It's Cool Inside: Advertising Air Conditioning to Postwar Suburbia
    • Abstract: Everything worth saying about the American way of life I could put in thirty pages. Topographically the country is magnificent—and terrifying. Why terrifying' Because nowhere else in the world is the divorce between man and nature so complete.1The amenities of modern life, such as panel-heating or air conditioning, humidifying and dehumidifying, have fostered the belief that we have "conquered" the inconveniences of our climate. We have ice-skating rinks in summer, and warm outdoor swimming pools in winter. . . . Still, nobody could say that we have come to terms with the outdoors. We merely retreated after a spiritless campaign to, what defeated generals referred to as, pre-arranged positions.2In July 1945, as the ... Read More

  • Raising Hell in the Heartland: Filipino Chicago and the Anti-Martial Law
           Movement, 1972-1986
    • Abstract: At the age of twenty-six, Leo Constantino moved from the Philippines to the United States. The year was 1961, a time when Asian immigration was limited mostly to students, businessmen, and diplomats. Five years prior to his move, he was ordained a Methodist minister. He decided to pursue a doctorate at the University of Chicago's Divinity School. Initially, his time in Chicago was planned as a temporary sojourn, but Constantino wound up establishing roots in the city. Over the next four decades, he served as an influential Methodist pastor on the South Side, working closely with Chicago's Filipino Protestants. While he spent his earliest years in the Philippines, Constantino lived most of his life making a home in ... Read More

  • Propaganda and the Deed: Anarchism, Violence and the Representational
           Impulse
    • Abstract: Anarchism literally exploded onto the American political scene on May 4, 1886, with the now famous Haymarket riot. A relatively commonplace labor rally in Chicago began to break up as rain clouds rolled in. As the crowd was dispersing and the day's final speaker—an anarchist—was concluding, police moved to end the meeting prematurely. A skirmish ensued, a bomb was thrown into a group of police officers, and they opened fire: soon, numerous civilians and officers were dead. Suddenly everyone was talking about anarchism. The Haymarket affair has dominated critical attention to pre–World War II American anarchism, a focus that signals the convergence of popular caricature—the bomb-wielding anarchist depicted in ...

  • White Boy: Prison Life Writing and White Male Victimhood in T. J.
           Parsell's Fish and Jack Henry Abbott's In the Belly of the Beast
    • Abstract: Most white Americans tend not to distinguish race as an important or even identifiable part of their identity. As Paula M.L. Moya and Hazel Rose Markus write in Doing Race: 21 Essays for the 21st Century (2010), "Many whites are quite comfortable with the idea that race (especially) and ethnicity are things that Asians, Latina/os, and blacks have to contend with, but that white people do not. They regard themselves as a neutral or standard, without race or ethnicity, or as a member of the 'human race.'" "Moreover," Moya and Markus continue, "when experimental social psychologists ask people to describe themselves on open-ended questionnaires, white people tend not to mention the racial or ethnic aspects of their ...

  • Selected Letters of Langston Hughes ed. by Arnold Rampersad and David
           Roessel with Christa Fratantoro (review)
    • Abstract: Assembling a collection of correspondence can be as loose as what Richard Wright once said about anthology-making: get a pot of glue and a pair of sharp scissors, and cut and paste the works together. Or, the process can be exacting, following the model of Arnold Rampersad and David Roessel, who crafted Selected Letters of Langston Hughes. The editorial principle determining which of the voluminous body of letters to include illustrates their careful thought. Overall, their goal was to offer "a life in letters." In so doing, they created a documentary record that complements Hughes's two autobiographies, the artfully-conceived biographies of Hughes, and previous collections of correspondence, especially The ...

  • How to Talk about Videogames by Ian Bogost (review)
    • Abstract: Given his scholarly expertise in media studies and interactive computing as well as his critical and commercial successes as a videogame designer for Persuasive Games LLC and as a contributing editor for The Atlantic, Ian Bogost is ideally suited to help readers in the arts, humanities, and social sciences find their bearings in this age of ne mediar, mobile apps, and smart technology. In this hyper-digitalized age, hastening at such a frenzied pace that, as Bogost acidly notes, "the test of time" for a product is measured in "mere years rather than generations" (161). Crucially, Bogost wants How to Talk about Videogames to reach other readers, too, because the "era of fields and disciplines has ended" (187); a ... Read More

  • The Associational State: American Governance in the Twentieth Century by
           Brian Balogh (review)
    • Abstract: This volume assembles half a dozen essays published over the past generation by historian Brian Balogh limning the evolution of the field of American Political Development. Political historians have, in Balogh's nomenclature, moved away from an older "Progressive synthesis," which cast American politics as a function of "activist government" versus "limited government" antagonisms, toward a new "associational" synthesis, in which scholarly attention focuses on exploration of the state itself as a potent and interested actor in policy matters.Attempts to understand the development of the American state, asserts Balogh, must reckon with the fact that American abhorrence of powerful central government is matched by ...
