The Indian Great Awakening: Religion and the Shaping of Native Cultures in Early America (Book)
Title: The Indian Great Awakening: Religion and the Shaping of Native Cultures in Early America
Author: Linford D. Fisher
Abstract: This book tells the story of American Indians' attempts to wrestle with the ongoing realities of colonialism between the 1670s and 1820. Fisher's analysis of church records, court documents, and correspondence reveals a complex reality. Placing the Awakening in context of land loss and the ongoing struggle for cultural autonomy in the eighteenth century casts it as another step in the ongoing, tentative engagement of native peoples with Christian ideas and institutions in the colonial world. Charting this untold story of the Great Awakening and the resultant rise of an Indian Separatism and its effects on Indian cultures as a whole, this book challenges long-held notions about religion and Native-Anglo-American interaction.

Jeremiah's Scribes: Creating Sermon Literature in Puritan New England (Book)
Title: Jeremiah's Scribes: Creating Sermon Literature in Puritan New England
Author: Meredith Marie Neuman
Abstract: New England Puritan sermon culture was primarily an oral phenomenon, and yet its literary production has been understood mainly through a print legacy. Meredith Marie Neuman turns to the notes taken by Puritan auditors in the meetinghouse in order to fill out our sense of the lived experience of the sermon. By reconstructing the aural culture of sermons, Neuman shifts our attention from the pulpit to the pew to demonstrate the many ways in which sermon auditors helped to shape this dominant genre of Puritan New England. Tracing the material transmission of sermon texts by readers and writers, hearers and notetakers, Jeremiah's Scribes challenges the notion of stable authorship by individual ministers. Instead, Neuman illuminates a mode of textual production that pervaded communities and occurred in the overlapping media of print, manuscript, and speech. Even printed sermons, she demonstrates, bore the traces of their roots in the oral culture of the meetinghouse. Bringing material considerations to bear on anxieties over the perceived relationship between divine and human language, Jeremiah's Scribes broadens our understanding of Puritan literature. Neuman examines the controlling logic of the sermon in relation to nonsermonic writing—such as conversion narrative—ultimately suggesting the fundamental permeability among disparate genres of Puritan writing.
