    • Abstract: Despite occasional efforts, the promise of digital history in the pages of the American Historical Review has been long deferred. The December issue begins to redress this by featuring an interactive digital article based on the analysis of a database of more than 15,000 mid-nineteenth-century bank depositors whose assets were held by New York’s Emigrant Savings Bank. In “Networks and Opportunities: A Digital History of Ireland’s Great Famine Refugees in New York,” Tyler Anbinder (George Washington University), Cormac Ó Gráda (University College Dublin), and Simone A. Wegge (College of Staten Island) scour these digitized records to show that even some of the most wretched of the refugees fleeing the Great Irish Famine (1845–1849) accumulated surprising savings and made strides up the American socioeconomic ladder. Digitized data rendered in highly localized maps of both Irish parishes and Manhattan wards allow the authors—and readers—to surmise why certain emigrants succeeded. Visualized data on emigrant networks by Irish birthplace, by New York residence, by employment niche, and by the acquisition of resources and skills reveal the characteristics of successful famine refugees. Utilizing tools increasingly common in the digital humanities, the authors flesh out the life stories of many of the immigrants found in the database, using census records, ship manifests, and bank ledgers hyperlinked to the electronic version of the article. Part of a larger digital project on Famine immigrants, “Moving beyond ‘Rags to Riches’” (http://beyondragstoriches.org/), the electronic version of the article provides access to the digitized bank ledgers, interactive maps, and supplementary documents, enabling readers to ask their own questions. For example, with a few clicks readers can access the bank records of the more than two dozen Irish immigrant saloonkeepers in the database, correlating their savings with place of birth, residence, date of emigration, and other data. The overall goal of the digital version of the article, then, is to give students and scholars the ability to do history rather than merely read it.

  • From the Editor’s Desk: How to Read the AHR
    • Abstract: I edit this journal in the throes of a delusion. Even though I know better, I continue to imagine that readers regard each issue as a coherent bound edition that arrives in the mail, containing between its covers a disparate collection of articles, reviews, and other types of material that somehow touch on common themes, even if only tangentially. Readers of this issue, for instance, will find a wide-ranging conversation on the contemporary role of museum collections and displays in presenting history to the public, reviews of seven such museums, a “History Unclassified” essay about slavery and “living history museums,” and four separate reviews of Peter Jackson’s World War I documentary They Shall Not Grow Old (2018), a film very much driven by montage and manipulation of archival holdings rooted in museum practice. To put it differently: if read with this particular theme in mind, the December issue contains the distinct voices of eighteen scholars addressing a common set of historical questions.

  • Networks and Opportunities: A Digital History of Ireland’s Great
           Famine Refugees in New York
    • Authors: Anbinder T; Gráda C, Wegge SA.
      Pages: 1591 - 1629
      Abstract: AbstractFor decades, historians portrayed the immigrants who arrived in the United States in the mid-nineteenth century fleeing the great Irish Famine as a permanent proletariat, doomed to live out their lives in America in poverty due to illiteracy, nativism, and a lack of vocational skills. Recent research, however, primarily by economic historians, has demonstrated that large numbers of Famine refugees actually fared rather well in the United States, saving surprising sums in bank accounts and making strides up the American socioeconomic ladder. These scholars, however, have never attempted to explain why some Famine immigrants thrived in the U.S. while others struggled merely to scrape by. Utilizing the unusually detailed records of New York’s Emigrant Savings Bank in conjunction with the methods of the digital humanities, this article seeks to understand what characteristics separated those Irish Famine immigrants who fared well financially from those who did not. Analysis of a database of more than 15,000 depositors suggests that networking was the key to economic advancement for the Famine immigrants. Those who lived in residential enclaves with other immigrants born in the same Irish parish saved significantly more than other immigrants, and those who created employment niches based on an Irish birthplace also amassed more wealth than those who did not. The electronic version of the article provides easy access to the database and interactive maps, allowing readers to ask their own questions of the data. The article also fleshes out the life stories of many of the immigrants found in the database, using documents found on genealogy websites such as Ancestry.com. These handwritten census records, ship manifests, and bank ledgers are hyperlinked to the electronic version of the article. That makes this essay ideal for classroom use—students can move effortlessly to the documents that underpin each paragraph and see clearly how historians use archival evidence to formulate arguments and shape historical narratives.

      Pages: 1673 - 1675
      Abstract: On June 28, 1919, Article 22 of the Covenant of the League of Nations came into force, establishing three types of “mandatory” power over the territories that had fallen into the hands of the victors of the Great War. The now cringe-worthy text of Article 22 seems worth quoting at length:

      Abstract: AbstractA century after the victorious Allied powers distributed their spoils of victory in 1919, the world still lives with the geopolitical consequences of the mandates system established by the League of Nations. The Covenant article authorizing the new imperial dispensation came cloaked in the old civilizationist discourse, entrusting sovereignty over “peoples not yet able to stand by themselves under the strenuous conditions of the modern world” to the “advanced nations” of Belgium, England, France, Japan, and South Africa. In this series of “reflections” on the mandates, ten scholars of Europe, Africa, the Middle East, Asia, and the international order consider the consequences of the new geopolitical order birthed by World War I. How did the reshuffling of imperial power in the immediate postwar period configure long-term struggles over minority rights, decolonization, and the shape of nation-states when the colonial era finally came to a close' How did the alleged beneficiaries—more often the victims—of this “sacred trust” grasp their own fates in a world that simultaneously promised and denied them the possibility of self-determination' From Palestine, to Namibia, to Kurdistan, and beyond, the legacies of the mandatory moment remain pressing questions today.

  • In Living Color: Early “Impressions” of Slavery and the Limits
           of Living History
    • Authors: Swanson D.
      Pages: 1732 - 1748
      Abstract: AbstractIn the 1970s, American historical sites began to more thoroughly and critically interpret slavery’s history, with a few institutions employing living history as an interpretive form. At sites like Virginia’s Mount Vernon and Colonial Williamsburg, the hope is that these historical “impressions” will engage audiences with a more authentic or credible representation of racial bondage. An earlier wave of living historical representations of slavery suggest the challenges and hazards of embodied history, however. In the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries, a significant number of southern sites employed African American interpreters who claimed to have been born into slavery, often on the very sites where they were currently working. Historical attractions used the “authenticity” and “credibility” of these interpreters to advance the narrative of a happy Old South. Historians have noted these performances as part of the sectional reconciliation of the Jim Crow era, but have rarely interpreted them as public history. Although the contemporary living history of slavery has different—and far better—goals than impressions of a century past, this long history of embodied bondage suggests the implicit dangers of interpreting slavery and race through living people.

  • Steps in the Tumen River
    • Authors: Song N.
      Pages: 1749 - 1757
      Abstract: AbstractThis article records my field experiences with the Tumen River, which forms the boundary between China and Korea. Based on my field notes at three different locations—the river mouth, where territories belonging to China, North Korea, and Russia adjoin; a small town midway along the river where pioneer Korean immigrants risked their lives to cross the border; and the “source” of the contemporary border in a dense mountain forest—my narrative links historical memories of the Tumen border from the seventeenth century to the present. The trips, which were taken over the course of thirteen years, urged me to inquire about and rethink the meaning of state borders from the perspective of local residents, trespassers, and the environment. The article questions the popular notion that boundaries are naturally formed, static, and always clearly defined. On the contrary, they are arbitrarily made, fluid, and often ambiguous. As my physical and intellectual journey along this river revealed the humanistic aspect of boundaries, I myself completed a transformation from journalist to historian.

      Abstract: AbstractKeletso Atkins’s 1993 book The Moon Is Dead! Give Us Our Money! The Cultural Origins of an African Work Ethic, Natal, South Africa, 1843–1900, remains as prescient now as it was a quarter-century ago. Atkins’s insistence on a methodology that foregrounded African labor regimes as logically consistent, rational, and deserving of full consideration within a proto-capitalist colonial market has had a significant impact in Southern African historical scholarship, and these calls have been taken up with earnest by subsequent scholars. Perhaps most important, however, has been her self-aware approach as a black scholar writing to and for members of the diaspora, an academic achievement rarely repeated in her subfield.

  • Introduction
    • Pages: 1769 - 1770
      Abstract: Peter Jackson’s stunning documentary film They Shall Not Grow Old (WingNut Films, 2018) brought to bear all of the technical resources at his considerable command to reanimate both visual and audio archives of World War I. Drawing on the enormous collection of moving images and oral histories held at the Imperial War Museum in London, Jackson and his team wove this material into a compelling account of men and combat on the Western Front. Most notably, by colorizing and adjusting the speed of the filmic archive to the modern eye, the resulting documentary achieves—or claims to—a heretofore impossible verisimilitude, right down to using lip reading to insert the occasional spoken word into once silent film clips. Combining the visual archive with carefully selected and closely edited oral histories—recorded, it seems, with aging veterans almost a half-century after the fact—Jackson’s wizardry renders a perhaps unprecedented kind of historical visual narrative. The result is at once profound and problematic, as the four essays in this special review roundtable suggest. Much as we did with our roundtable on the prize-winning 2018 film Bisbee ’17 in the June 2019 issue, we asked a collection of scholars with different potential approaches to the film and the history it recounts to offer their critical reflections on a form of historical narrative that reaches far more people than the typical monograph.

  • Colors of the Past: Archive, Art, and Amnesia in a Digital Age
    • Authors: Das S.
      Pages: 1771 - 1781
      Abstract: AbstractThis roundtable offers four diverse perspectives on Peter Jackson’s innovative and controversial World War I documentary film They Shall Not Grow Old (2018). Jackson’s film breaks the mold of the documentary genre in its manipulation and montage of the visual and audio archives held at the Imperial War Museum in London. Yet he puts his technical virtuosity and resources at the service of a very traditional interpretation of the war, focusing almost entirely on the experience of young Englishmen on the Western Front. Scholars Santanu Das, Susan R. Grayzel, Jessica Meyer, and Catherine Robson offer their reflections on both the gains and losses of Jackson’s paradoxical original use of historical documents and old-fashioned rendering of the war’s experiential elements. They consider, respectively, the experience of colonial troops, the place of women in the war, and Jackson’s creative, if controversial, interpretation of the visual and aural archive.

      Abstract: AbstractThis roundtable offers four diverse perspectives on Peter Jackson’s innovative and controversial World War I documentary film They Shall Not Grow Old (2018). Jackson’s film breaks the mold of the documentary genre in its manipulation and montage of the visual and audio archives held at the Imperial War Museum in London. Yet he puts his technical virtuosity and resources at the service of a very traditional interpretation of the war, focusing almost entirely on the experience of young Englishmen on the Western Front. Scholars Santanu Das, Susan R. Grayzel, Jessica Meyer, and Catherine Robson offer their reflections on both the gains and losses of Jackson’s paradoxical original use of historical documents and old-fashioned rendering of the war’s experiential elements. They consider, respectively, the experience of colonial troops, the place of women in the war, and Jackson’s creative, if controversial, interpretation of the visual and aural archive.

The AHR now reviews films, historical fiction, graphic histories, document collections, pedagogical materials, digital sites, and even historically themed video games.
