Empires of Love: Europe, Asia, and the Making of Early Modern Identity (Book) [show prizes]
Title: Empires of Love: Europe, Asia, and the Making of Early Modern Identity
Author: Carmen Nocentelli
Abstract: Drawing on a wide range of European sources on polygamy, practices of male genital modification, and the allegedly excessive libido of native women, Empires of Love emphasizes the overlapping and mutually transformative construction of race and sexuality during Europe's early overseas expansion, arguing that the encounter with Asia contributed to the development of Western racial discourse while also shaping European ideals of marriage, erotic reciprocity, and monogamous affection.

Universities of Social and Political Change: Slaves in Jail in Antebellum America (Book Section)
Title: Universities of Social and Political Change: Slaves in Jail in Antebellum America
Author: O'Donovan, Susan
Editor: Michele Lise Tarter
Editor: Richard Bell
Abstract: Buried Lives offers the first critical examination of the experience of imprisonment in early America. These interdisciplinary essays investigate several carceral institutions to show how confinement shaped identity, politics, and the social imaginary both in the colonies and in the new nation. The historians and literary scholars included in this volume offer a complement and corrective to conventional understandings of incarceration that privilege the intentions of those in power over the experiences of prisoners. Considering such varied settings as jails, penitentiaries, almshouses, workhouses, floating prison ships, and plantations, the contributors reconstruct the struggles of people imprisoned in locations from Antigua to Boston. The essays draw upon a rich array of archival sources from the seventeenth century to the eve of the Civil War, including warden logs, petitions, execution sermons, physicians' clinical notes, private letters, newspaper articles, runaway slave advertisements, and legal documents. Through the voices, bodies, and texts of the incarcerated, Buried Lives reveals the largely ignored experiences of inmates who contested their subjection to regimes of power.

Making Modernism: Literature and Culture in Twentieth-Century Chicago (Web Resources)
Title: Making Modernism: Literature and Culture in Twentieth-Century Chicago
Author: Liesl Olson
Abstract: The focus of Making Modernism is the literature of Chicago in connection with the unique urban, economic, and cultural history of the city. Chicago’s contributions to international modernism have predominantly focused on architecture, which we acknowledge with a design derived from the windows of Frank Lloyd Wright. This exhibit, however, gives emphasis to the literature of Chicago and its connections to developments across the arts. Making Modernism emphasizes four thematic lines of inquiry relating to twentieth-century Chicago’s literary and cultural life: (1) the geographic centrality of Chicago both locally and internationally; (2) modernism’s distinctive reception history in Chicago; (3) the historically overlooked women in Chicago who served as important cultural arbiters; and (4) the connections between the “Chicago Renaissance” in the arts, which occurred between 1910 and the mid-1920s, and the “Chicago Black Renaissance,” which began in the 1930s and continued through mid-century.

100 Years of Poetry: ‘In the Middle of Major Men’ (Article)
Title: 100 Years of Poetry: ‘In the Middle of Major Men’
Author: Liesl Olson
Abstract: Monroe is the most celebrated woman of Poetry magazine—and arguably its most important editor—though many women helped to edit Poetry both in Monroe’s time and throughout the magazine’s 100-year history. They include Monroe’s indispensible first assistant, Alice Corbin Henderson; writer and war correspondent Eunice Tietjens; poets Jessica Nelson North and Marion Strobel; and Margaret Danner, a highly successful African American poet who worked with Karl Shapiro and Henry Rago in the 1950s and 1960s. Like Monroe, these women navigated a larger literary culture dominated by men.

Representing Chicago: The City in Art, Literature, and Music (Public Lecture or Presentation)
Title: Representing Chicago: The City in Art, Literature, and Music
Abstract: Guest lecturer for ENGL 28815: From the late nineteenth century onward, writers and artists have been inspired by Chicago and have also created its most enduring representations. Six different creative communities, three from the city's past and three from its present, serve as access points for a broader consideration of the creative "infrastructure" (libraries, cafes, print shops, studios, theaters, newspapers, bars, magazines, radio) that has made and sustained cultural production. Collaboration and cross-disciplinary work distinguish these communities, which stretch from the "Little Room" of the nineteenth century to the Poetry Foundation of today, from the Dil Pickle Club in Towertown to the Hideout in Lincoln Park, and from the Parkway Community House of the WPA era to the Arts Incubator of the Obama age. While the focus is on Chicago-produced literature, all of the arts are explored. Students are expected to produce critical and creative work and to collaborate with a contemporary creative community in producing a public experience.

White City, Black Metropolis (Conference/Institute/Seminar)
Title: White City, Black Metropolis
Author: Liesl Olson
Abstract: This paper begins with a look at the relationship between Gwendolyn Brooks and Richard Wright within the larger context of the Chicago Black Renaissance. Drawing upon new and extensive archival research, the paper maps out what was distinctive about Chicago’s literary culture at this time-especially in comparison to Harlem. It tells a story of interracial collaborations supported by the Works Progress Administration, and explores the question of how black writers conceived of an audience for their writing, when they were dependent upon white publishers. Ultimately the paper puts forth two claims: that the art and literature of Bronzeville balanced the aims of social realism with the experimental forms of literary modernism; and that the Chicago Black Renaissance was a movement with its own distinctive energy even as it was informed by a set of aesthetic concerns characteristic to Chicago more broadly. Writers and artists discussed in the paper include: Nelson Algren, Arna Bontemps, Gwendolyn Brooks, Horace Cayton, Jack Conroy, Eldzier Cortor, Ralph Ellison, Vivian Harsh, Zora Neale Hurston, Langston Hughes, Wayne Miller, Inez Stark, Gertrude Stein, Era Bell Thompson, Margaret Walker, Richard Wright.

Invited Participants: Christopher Reed, English and Visual Culture, Penn State; Liesl Olson, American History and Culture, Newberry Library.

Hemingway in Chicago (Public Lecture or Presentation)
Title: Hemingway in Chicago
Abstract: Ernest Hemingway lived in Chicago for a year and a half, from 1920 to 1921, when he was 21 years old. At the same time, H.L. Mencken claimed that Chicago had become “the literary capital of the United States.” Living in various apartments in Towertown–the then bohemian neighborhood surrounding the Newberry Library–Hemingway was influenced by a vibrant literary and artistic scene, including the writers Carl Sandburg and Sherwood Anderson. But it is the untold story of Hemingway’s relationship with another young journalist starting out in Chicago, Fanny Butcher, that illuminates Hemingway’s lifelong conception of Chicago and the American Midwest.
