  • Faith in Black Power: Religion, Race, and Resistance in Cairo, Illinois by
           Kerry Pimblott (review)

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Faith in Black Power contextualizes the relationship between Black power and Black Christianity through a discussion of political activism that emerged from African American religious institutions in Cairo, Illinois, in the nineteenth and twentieth centuries. Employing archival research and interviews, author Kerry Pimblott references social movement theory to discuss political organization in spaces of Black faith as a necessary response to fluctuations in anti-Black rhetoric and violence. She further employs borderland theory to consider the particular challenges faced by liberation struggles in cities located in northern states but in close proximity to the South to uncover how Cairo's freedom struggles adapted ...

  • Woman Suffrage and Citizenship in the Midwest, 1870–1920 by Sara
           Egge (review)

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: In this fascinating and important work, Sara Egge recaptures the story of the upper midwestern fight over suffrage in the five decades prior to the passage of the Nineteenth Amendment. Drawing on newspapers, archival sources, voluntary association records, and other materials, Egge takes readers on a deep dive into three counties that, over the period between 1870 and 1920, weighed the question of whether women should vote. She uses the histories of the suffrage debate in Clay County, Iowa; Lyon County, Minnesota; and Yankton County, South Dakota, to analyze midwestern political discourse surrounding not just suffrage but citizenship.In five succinct and well-argued chapters, Egge traces the five-decade trajectory ...

  • The Federalist Frontier: Settler Politics in the Old Northwest,
           1783–1840 by Kristopher Maulden (review)

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: The names of Manasseh and Ephraim Cutler, Rufus Putnam, and Arthur St. Clair are undoubtedly well-known to readers of the Middle West Review, if not as the central figures of a midwestern origin story in late eighteenth-century Ohio than as the luminaries whose records birthed David McCullough's The Pioneers: The Heroic Story of the Settlers Who Brought the American Ideal West (2019) and a related symposium in a recent issue of this journal. Although Kristopher Maulden's The Federalist Frontier: Settler Politics in the Old Northwest, 1783–1840 treads upon much of the same hallowed ground, scholars of the Midwest will be remiss to ignore this latter work. Maulden grounds his story of the Old Northwest not in the ... Read More

           and Women United for Abolition by Jane Ann Moore and William F. Moore
           (review)

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: With the Northwest Ordinance (1787), the Confederation Congress prohibited slavery in the states that would become the Midwest. Nonetheless, slavery did exist in midwestern states. The state of Illinois, for example, subjected African Americans to Black Codes, servitude contracts, racial mob violence, and other forms of White terrorism. Shadrach Bond, the state's first governor, owned several enslaved African Americans. Against this backdrop of blatant support for an institution supposedly banned since 1787, forces began organizing to abolish slavery in Illinois and the United States. Owen Lovejoy and the Coalition for Equality: Clergy, African Americans, and Women United for Abolition explores the relationship ... Read More

           Wright and Dawson Barrett (review)

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: In Punks in Peoria, Jonathan Wright's and Dawson Barrett's account of the underground youth music scene in Peoria, Illinois, Gared O'Donnell of local band Planes Mistaken for Stars remarks on their decision to move to Denver: "I guess in your early twenties … Peoria was a great place to be from, but it wasn't a great place to stay" (171). Many of us who first encountered underground music in the declining Rust Belt towns that dotted the Midwest did indeed find our hometowns better places to be from than to stay, and Wright's and Barrett's account of youth seeking escape from the stifling confines of their culturally conservative and economically stagnating surroundings is a welcome addition to studies that ...

  • Goths and Visigoths: Jon Hassler and the Midwestern Moral Universe

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Jon Hassler was born in Minneapolis but mostly grew up in the small towns of Staples and Plainview, Minnesota. His father ran a grocery store and his mother was a teacher. As a young Catholic, he went to leafy and intellectual St. John's University in Collegeville, Minnesota, studying with the monks up where farming Minnesota turned into wooded and riverine Minnesota. He later earned a master's degree in English from the University of North Dakota in Grand Forks (his thesis was on the moral choices in the novels of Hemingway, a fellow Midwesterner).1 Hassler's first and most remembered novel is Staggerford (1977), about a little Minnesota town of the same name and the goings-on of its teachers, school ...

  • Detroit dir. by Kathryn Bigelow (review)

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: The Midwest is commonly associated with images of solitary farmhouses, water towers, grain silos, and football fields that dominate the high schools next to them. In this view, the Midwest is rural and predominantly White. However, these images ignore the reality of the Midwest's diverse populations (in both urban and rural spaces), many of whom have seen little onscreen representation and much oppression throughout this country's history. Director Kathryn Bigelow's historical drama Detroit (2017) gives viewers a chance to reimagine midwestern experiences of the civil rights era via a recreation of the 1967 Detroit Rebellion. The film depicts events at the Algiers Motel, where police officers killed and tortured ... Read More

  • Breaking Away dir. by Peter Yates (review)

      Abstract: For a Taiwanese immigrant to critique the 1979 film Breaking Away—set in the midwestern college town of Bloomington, Indiana, where the Little 500 bicycle race is held annually—may seem downright odd. Interests usually denote self-interest, however the self is defined. When I arrived at Indiana University Bloomington (IU) in 1982 for graduate studies in the English department, I soon became familiar with the film that won an Oscar (Steve Tesich's screenplay) and a Golden Globe (Best Motion Picture—Musical or Comedy). Tesich himself had been trained at IU in the 1960s; in one shot, "English Major" was intentionally scrawled across a used car's windshield. As I had just embarked on my PhD, I should have attended to ... Read More

  • Internal/Rural Disaster and Recovery in Take Shelter dir. by Jeff Nichols
           (review)

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: American culture is so obsessed with self-destruction that it has internalized such fears. Film scholar Christopher Sharrett has noted "the difficulty the American mind has in conceiving its own destruction," which has led to films focused on this topic.1 The disaster film genre has reflected these preoccupations from the birth of cinema. Its golden age came in the 1970s, which was a time of spectacle filmmaking with star ensembles.2 The post-9/11 trend of U.S. disaster films, however, has boiled down the ensemble struggles of 1970s films to a single sufferer, as in works such as Danny Boyle's 127 Hours (2010).3 This practice is a hybrid of what David Bordwell describes as the "art film" and what critics and ...

      Abstract: Tell us about your roots in the American Midwest.I was raised in East Lansing, Michigan. Both of my parents taught at Michigan State University, and they still live in Okemos, Michigan. My dad is a big outdoorsman, so I grew up around rivers, particularly the Au Sable. Watching the canoe marathon in Grayling, Michigan, is a big family affair. My sister and her husband attended the University of Michigan. I also have a lot of cousins in Detroit. A whole branch of my mother's family moved up from Mississippi to Detroit during the Jim Crow era to work in the auto plants, and they still live there now. Many of my cousins work two or even three jobs to get by. My husband spent some time working at Albion College, so we ... Read More

      Abstract: Of course you've lived in North Dakota and know it well, but you've also been in Michigan and Iowa for much of your life. Do you consider yourself a Midwesterner'Yes, of course. I also traveled extensively in my twenties as a road musician, and I saw other parts of the country, but I was always based out of midwestern cities. I did live for one year in Rapid City, South Dakota, which felt to me, when I lived there, more like the West. But I consider myself a Midwesterner. The differences between the places listed above (Iowa, Michigan, North Dakota) feel significant and complex to me within the larger question of what constitutes the Midwest.Michigan, for example, is considered a midwestern state along with ...

      Abstract: Virgil Abloh, a pioneer in the worlds of fashion, design, visual art, and music, whose creativity regularly both crossed and challenged disciplinary boundaries, has died at age forty-one, after a private battle with cancer. An innovator and leader in global fashion, named one of Time magazine's one hundred most influential people in the world in 2018, Abloh maintained a deep connection to his midwestern roots throughout his life.Abloh was born in 1980 in Rockford, Illinois, to Ghanaian immigrant parents (his father managing a paint factory and his mother working as a seamstress). Abloh did not receive any formal training in fashion design and credited his mother with teaching him how to sew. A 1998 graduate of ... Read More

      Abstract: Internationally renowned Minnesota native Robert Bly died on November 21, 2021, twelve years after telling us in a poem: "I know that each of us will die alone."1 After a decade of dementia, he may have felt alone, but Bly did not pass unappreciated. Newspapers from the New York Times to the Washington Post announced his departure with obituaries focusing mostly on his opposition to the Vietnam War and his prose book Iron John: A Book About Men. The real story, however, is the rise of a farm kid from flyover country—who did not publish a book of poems until his thirty-sixth year—to a spot in the Norton Anthology of American Literature, fourth edition (1974). Bly's grounding in the Minnesota Middle West made it ... Read More

  • How the Midwest Shaped the Way We Bank: Early Twentieth-Century Banking
           Politics

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Banking and monetary issues occupy a prominent place in midwestern political history. Narratives of the region's nineteenth-century politics have long recounted the financial reform agendas of the Greenbacker and Populist movements. Yet the "money question" included broader concerns that remained at the center of progressive and populistic politics in the Midwest into the 1940s. My research on banking politics in Money, Power, and the People: The American Struggle to Make Banking Democratic reveals the previously neglected campaigns of workers and farmers for financial reform during the early twentieth century.1 Although grassroots banking politics existed nationwide, this political force was particularly robust in ...

      Abstract: In a 1966 interview, Bob Dylan said "I'm not a New Yorker. I'm North Dakota-Minnesota-Midwestern. I'm that color. I speak that way. I'm from someplace called the Iron Range. My brains and feeling have come from there." Dylan was the son of Abe and Beatrice Zimmerman, both products of Jewish immigrant families. The Zimmermans lived up on Minnesota's northern mining range in the town of Hibbing, where Abe sold appliances with his brother. Beatrice, known as "Beatty," recalled having served latkes to all her Christian neighbors on Hanukah and embraced her identity "as an American … who went to school and enjoyed every one of my Christian friends." She sent young Bob off to college at the University of Minnesota, where ... Read More

      Abstract: A small red brick building stands on the corner of 4th Avenue and 5th Street South in Virginia, Minnesota. On the day of its dedication, April 8, 1910, the front page of the local newspaper, The Virginia Enterprise, featured a photo of the building and an article describing it as a beautiful, well-built temple that cost approximately $10,000, a goodly sum for the time.1 Constructed for the town's small Jewish community, the temple was given the name B'nai (sons of) Abraham. Beautifully restored and rededicated in 2010, the building, now known as the B'nai Abraham Cultural Center and Museum, is used for a variety of community events and houses a permanent display of photographs, artifacts, and other material ...

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: In 1981, a local Chicago television station asked Saul Bellow to lead a walking tour through Humboldt Park, his childhood home. Although Bellow was born in Quebec, he moved with his family to Chicago in 1924 when he was nine years old. The Bellows settled in Humboldt Park, a neighborhood on the northwest side of the city. Originally settled by Germans and Scandinavians, by the 1920s Humboldt Park was home to a diverse mix of European immigrants, among them Italians, Poles, and Russian Jews. The Bellows lived on Cortez Street, just south of the intersection of Division and Damen. Walking west on Division from Damen in the 1920s, one might pass by a meeting of the Zionist Organization of America at Budapest Hall or a ... Read More

      Abstract: Yiddish poet Pessie Pomerantz-Honigbaum's poem "Vintn" ["Winds"] depicts Chicago by following the path of winds that sweep through the city, rushing in from Lake Michigan where the poet loves to stroll, making their way through the smog of the city and back out of the dense cityscape to its wide parks at the city's outskirts.1 The poem begins and ends with beauty and natural expanse, the pleasures of a walk on the shoreline, the elegant symphony of the winds dancing through the parks. In its center, though, winds howl through crowded, dusty streets, past the "raykh zaln" [halls of wealth], presumably the business district and stock exchange, and the "geshtank fun dayne shlakht-heyzer" [stink of your ...

      Abstract: "One might even say, with a measure of justification, that Minneapolis is the capital of anti-Semitism in the United States."In the seventy-five years since the publication of Carey McWilliams's article, "Minneapolis: The Curious Twin," the notion of Minneapolis as the capital of mid-twentieth-century American anti-Semitism has achieved meme status. From major overviews (including by this author) to History Day papers, it is hard to find a single account of Minnesota Jewish history that does not note the shocking (and quoteworthy) appellation penned by McWilliams.1Minneapolis was indeed fertile ground for a variety of anti-Semitic activity in the decades before and after the 1946 publication of "Curious Twin" in ...
