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. In Jeremiah's Scribes, 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.

“Confronting Taboo: Photography and the Art of Jacob Lawrence.” (Article)
Title: “Confronting Taboo: Photography and the Art of Jacob Lawrence.”
Author: Tanya Sheehan
Abstract: Among the most celebrated African American artists of the twentieth century, Jacob Lawrence is known for depicting black life in post-Depression Harlem and exploring social and political realities through abstraction. Scholars have noted regular overlaps in the subject matter of Lawrence’s paintings and that of contemporary documentary photographs, especially the images produced by white photographers under the Farm Security Administration. And yet little has been said of the recurring references to vernacular photography across his oeuvre or of their relation to the documentary tradition. Through a reinterpretation of Taboo (1963), this essay asks how and why Lawrence turned to “everyday” photographic practices as a formal element in his painting and as a carrier of political meaning. My aims are twofold: to shed new light on an understudied aspect of Lawrence’s painting, and to expand our understanding of African American modern art as reaching across the history of photography.

The Voyage of the Slave Ship Hare: A Journey into Captivity from Sierra Leone to South Carolina (Book)
Title: The Voyage of the Slave Ship Hare: A Journey into Captivity from Sierra Leone to South Carolina
Author: Sean M. Kelley
Abstract: "From 1754 to 1755, the slave ship Hare completed a journey from Newport, Rhode Island, to Sierra Leone and back to the United States--a journey that transformed more than seventy Africans into commodities, condemning some to death and the rest to a life of bondage in North America. In this engaging narrative, Sean Kelley painstakingly reconstructs this tumultuous voyage, detailing everything from the identities of the captain and crew to their wild encounters with inclement weather, slave traders, and near-mutiny. But most importantly, Kelley tracks the cohort of slaves aboard the Hare from their purchase in Africa to their sale in South Carolina. In tracing their complete journey, Kelley provides rare insight into the communal lives of slaves and sheds new light on the African diaspora and its influence on the formation of African American culture.
