Men of War: British Sailors and the Impressment Paradox (Article)
Title: Men of War: British Sailors and the Impressment Paradox
Author: Denver Brunsman
Abstract: In the long eighteenth century, the British Royal Navy established dominance of the seas with the widely despised forced labor system of impressment. Previous attempts at explaining this paradox have erred either in deemphasizing the devastating personal and communal costs of impressment or by stressing that the navy’s oppressive system of discipline left sailors with no choice but to serve admirably. In fact, sailors exercised their agency both by resisting British press-gangs and by serving to the best of their ability on naval vessels. The British navy created incentives that appealed to mariners’ professional self-interests and male gender aspirations. Through naval service, sailors regained some of their dignity and sense of manhood that capture by press-gangs had taken away.

Vico and Naples: The Urban Origins of Modern Social Theory (Book) [show prizes]
Title: Vico and Naples: The Urban Origins of Modern Social Theory
Author: Barbara Ann Naddeo
Abstract: This book explores the life of Neapolitan philosopher Giambattista Vico (1668-1744), revealing the politics and motivations of one of Europe’s first scientists of society. He has traditionally been seen as removed from the larger community: however, the author shows that at the beginning of his career Vico was very engaged in the life of his city and argues that these experiences helped shape his future inquiry. She also shows how these and other events in his life eventually lead to the origins of his powerful notion of the social.

"Perhaps Our Lord, God, has Forgotten Me": Intruding into the Colonial Nahua (Aztec) Confessional (Book Section)
Title: "Perhaps Our Lord, God, has Forgotten Me": Intruding into the Colonial Nahua (Aztec) Confessional
Author: Sell, Barry
Editor: Susan Schroeder
Abstract: The Spaniards typically portrayed the conquest and fall of Mexico Tenochtitlan as Armageddon, while native peoples in colonial Mesoamerica continued to write and paint their histories and lives often without any mention of the foreigners in their midst. Their accounts took the form of annals, chronicles, religious treatises, tribute accounts, theatre pieces, and wills. Thousands of documents were produced, almost all of which served to preserve indigenous ways of doing things. But what provoked record keeping on such a grand scale? At what point did precontact sacred writing become utilitarian and quotidian? Were their texts documentaries, a form of boosterism, even ingenious intellectualism, or were they ultimately a literature of ruin? This volume seeks to address key aspects of indigenous perspectives of the conquest and Spanish colonialism by examining what they themselves recorded and why they did so.

"An invincible force meets an immovable object": Gertrude Stein comes to Chicago (Article)
Title: "An invincible force meets an immovable object": Gertrude Stein comes to Chicago
Author: Liesl Olson
Abstract: This article draws on unpublished archival material to illuminate Gertrude Stein’s visits to Chicago during the 1930s. Stein caused a sensation all over the city--especially among the city’s literary ladies--but also met with resistance at the University of Chicago. Stein’s time in Chicago reveals the complex relationship among gender, literary celebrity, and the reception of literary modernism, as well as the ways in which an avant-garde lesbian writer becomes a “great” writer in a tradition that is dominated by men. Most importantly, Stein’s reception in Chicago is central to understanding new arguments not only about Stein’s identity but also about Stein’s aesthetic, which was significantly impacted by her experiences in a city characterized by its “middle”-ness and mobility.
