Union, Commerce, and Slavery in the U.S. Constitution from the War of 1812 to the Civil War

A book-length study of Constitutional debates during the period 1815 to 1861.

“The Interbellum Constitution” argues that the decades between the War of 1812 and the Civil War were a dynamic era characterized by both constitutional crisis and conviction. My project shows that the struggle over the interbellum Constitution was the source of some of the most fundamental values, and the most troubling problems, of U.S. law and politics. Public debate in the period was dominated by the issues of commerce and concurrent power, both of which were framed but left unresolved by the Constitution. Commerce became a source of national identity, a zone of regional conflict, and a touchstone of legal and political debate. Contemporaries were also consumed by fights over concurrent power – areas in which federal and state authority overlapped, including slavery, taxation, and public works projects. Drawing on popular and legal sources, my account demonstrates that the period generated a new set of constitutional ideas that bridged the founding and Reconstruction periods.

The American Prison Writing Archive

Cataloging and digitization of 1,200 original, non-fiction essays written by prisoners in the American criminal justice system.

We seek funding to support The American Prison Writing Archive (APWA), the largest and first fully searchable digital archive of first-person, non-fiction essays by incarcerated people and prison workers writing about their experience inside. Currently holding over 1,100 essays in its paper files, and gathering 1,200 more before and during the grant period, the APWA fills a yawning gap in the literature on a prison-jail system that holds 2.26 million Americans and affects millions of others. Based in first-person narratives, the APWA will re-open the prison to humanities scholars sidelined from prison studies in face of the sheer size of the U.S. prison system. It will build and maintain a national, collaborative archive serving scholarly and general audiences, and it will bring together faculty and students, library and technology specialists, and members of the larger community to develop the most innovative and sustainable digital features to serve all interested parties.

Marshall was highly involved in the decisions made in international relations during the early Cold War period. He was responsible for the creation of the European Recovery Plan (Marshall Plan), the impact of which continues in this volume, and was involved in military and foreign relations issues with Palestine, the entire Middle East, Germany, the Soviet Union, most of Eastern Europe, the genesis of NATO, the Korean War, and the early "Red Scare."

Editing part of Volume 6 (1947-50) of The Papers of George Catlett Marshall

Completion of volume 6 and preliminary work on volume 7 of The Papers of George Catlett Marshall.

Edit the sixth of seven volumes of George C. Marshall's papers. The sixth volume includes documents (telegrams, letters, memorandums, speeches, etc.) written during his tenure as U.S. Secretary of State (January 1947-January 1949) and as head of the American Battle Monuments Commission and the American Red Cross (January 1949-September 1950). Nearly all documents published will be by Marshall, as opposed to staff-drafted for Marshall's signature. The decisions taken and activities undertaken in international relations by the United States during the early Cold War period (1945-50) continue to be controversial, much studied by students and professionals in many disciplines, and of influence in recent events.

Establishment and support for the Center for Textual and Editorial Studies in Humanistic Sources, a program for instruction of graduate students in the handling and editing of manuscript sources and printed texts. Consideration will be given to the transmission of literary and historical texts and to the principles of textual criticism and literary and historical editing. Primary purpose of center is to reintroduce American students of history and literature to concern for the integrity of the text upon which conclusions in the fields is based. Will prepare some of these students for careers as scholarly editors. Arrangements have been made with the University of Virginia Library, the Virginia Historical Society, the Library of the College of William and Mary, and the Research Department of colonial Williamsburg, Inc., to provide photographic copies of unedited manuscripts and printed materials to serve as texts for instruction in editorial procedures, which will result in a body of edited texts which have contributed to the training of the student editors which can then be published without further editing. Plans have been made for apprentice programs and/or lectures by the editorial staffs of the paper of George Washington, the John Marshall papers, the James Madison Papers and Stephen Crane's literary texts. Cooperation also planned with the Modern Language Association's Center for Editions of American Authors. Fund for first 2 years of projected 5 year project. Covers salaries, graduate fellowships, honoraria, travel, supplies, indirect costs.
