Open-access edition of Footprints of War: Militarized Landscapes in Vietnam, by David Biggs

Footprints of War by David Biggs (FA-57319-13) traces the long history of conflict-produced spaces in Vietnam, from the French colonial invasion in 1885 through the collapse of the Saigon government in 1975. The result is a richly textured history of militarized landscapes that reveals the spatial logic and social impact of key battles. It also explores how the militarized landscapes here, as in many historic conflict zones, continue to shape post-war land-use politics. We published a hardcover edition in 2018 and propose to publish an open-access edition with a Creative Commons license. We will post it on leading OA repositories including JSTOR, MUSE Open, OAPEN, Internet Archive, and HathiTrust. We are also piloting the Manifold platform, which will enable the author to link additional resources to the book for further research and teaching purposes. We will promote the OA edition at professional conferences and via direct mail and social media. We will pay the author a $500 royalty.

Photographic Presidents: Taking History from Daguerreotype to Digital by Cara A. Finnegan

Photographic Presidents tells a history of photography through stories of how presidents shaped and participated in transformative moments in the history of the medium. Cara A. Finnegan analyzes a wealth of newspaper and magazine articles, letters to the editor, trial testimony, books, and speeches produced by viewers in response to specific photos they encountered in public. Finnegan treats the photograph as a locus for viewer engagement and constructs a history of photography's viewers that shows how Americans used words about images to participate in the politics of their day. As she shows, encounters with photography helped viewers negotiate the emergent anxieties and crises of U.S. public life through not only persuasion but action as well. Telling a new story about a medium and an institution that have largely grown up together, this book offers readers an accessible, visually engaging story about photography, the presidency, and public life.

Funding for an Open Access edition of A Player and a Gentleman: The Diary of Harry Watkins, Nineteenth - Century U.S. American Actor Written by Amy Hughes and Naomi Stubbs

This project will publish the book A Player and a Gentleman: The Diary of Harry Watkins, Nineteenth-Century US American Actor edited by Amy E. Hughes and Naomi J. Stubbs an electronic open access format under a Creative Commons license, making it available for free download and distribution. This book offers selections from the diary of actor, playwright, and stage manager Harry Watkins (1825–94) providing a rare glimpse into American theater and society in the mid-nineteenth century. For fifteen years Watkins regularly recorded the plays he saw, the roles he performed, the books he read, and his impressions of current events. His travels included encounters with P. T. Barnum, Junius Brutus Booth, Edwin Forrest, Anna Cora Mowatt, and Lucy Stone, among other notable figures. His is the only known diary of substantial length and scope written by a U.S. actor before the Civil War—making Watkins, essentially, the antebellum equivalent of Samuel Pepys.

Open Access edition of Thought Crime: Ideology and State Power

In Thought Crime Max M. Ward explores the Japanese state's efforts to suppress political radicalism in the 1920s and 1930s. Ward traces the evolution of an antiradical law called the Peace Preservation Law, from its initial application to suppress communism and anticolonial nationalism—what authorities deemed thought crime—to its expansion into an elaborate system to reform and ideologically convert thousands of thought criminals throughout the Japanese Empire.

Open Access Edition of Listening for Africa: Freedom, Modernity, and the Logic of Black Music's African Origins.

In Listening for Africa David F. Garcia explores how a diverse group of musicians, dancers, academics, and activists engaged with the idea of black music and dance’s African origins between the 1930s and 1950s. Garcia examines the work of figures ranging from Melville J. Herskovits, Katherine Dunham, and Asadata Dafora to Duke Ellington, Dámaso Pérez Prado, and others who believed that linking black music and dance with Africa and nature would help realize modernity’s promises of freedom in the face of fascism and racism in Europe and the Americas, colonialism in Africa, and the nuclear threat at the start of the Cold War. In analyzing their work, Garcia traces how such attempts to link black music and dance to Africa unintentionally reinforced the binary relationships between the West and Africa, white and black, the modern and the primitive, science and magic, and rural and urban.
