3 ‘Confusion turns to fear’ – race in the 1940s and 1950s In 1956, J. W. Milam told Time magazine that ‘Niggers ain’t gonna vote where I live. If they did, they’d control the government’.1 Milam and those who shared his views used violence and intimidation to prevent the enfranchisement of black citizens; he was one of the two men who murdered fourteen-year-old Emmet Till in 1955 after Till interacted with a white woman.2 Milam was not necessarily representative of white Americans at the time, but his assertion makes overt a recurring anxiety in national

6 Viola Bernard and the case study of race in post-war America Joy Damousi The writings and political activism of Viola Bernard, a psychoanalyst of German-Jewish background who practised in New York during the twentieth century, provide a further prism through which to consider the genre of the case study, as well as broader questions concerning intersections between culture, politics and the discourses of psychiatry and psychoanalysis. A resilient political and social activist, Bernard was committed to many progressive causes. These included support of trade

armies to the European threat created the preconditions for the rise of martial race ideology and discourse. As such, martial race ideology must be viewed not only as a construct brought about by the interconnections between ‘home’ and ‘empire’, but also between ‘home’, ‘empire’ and the global system within which they were enmeshed. In this case, Europe – whether Russia, France, Germany, or all three in

Ideology and the Gothic in Hagars Daughter
Eugenia DeLamotte

Delamotte examines the representation of race in Pauline Hopkins‘s Hagar‘s Daughter (1901/2). She argues that the novel provides a revision of the Female Gothic and also exploits narrative devices familiar from detective fiction. The solving of the ‘mystery’ that lies at the heart of the novel is one which explodes the ideological ‘mystery’, and the national crime of slavery, which separates Black and White, masculine and feminine, home and state, and African American and Euro-American families.

a combination of racial hostility, paternalism and settler political ambitions. This chapter will shed light on eugenics in Kenya through an examination of the social composition and interests of the eugenicists and by contextualising their ideas, showing how eugenic thought shaped itself to the local social and political situation.

). The aid sector and the environments in which it functions are often much more diverse in reality. Quite apart from ‘the locals’, a vast array of less-privileged foreigners (or ‘third country nationals’) play key enabling parts in the humanitarian industrial complex but are left out of heroic white saviour narratives. 5 Nationality effectively becomes a shorthand for race, and non-white aid workers and their experiences are invisibilised and

After all West Indians are coming over here in increasing numbers, and they’d like to know what sort of person they’re going to meet, and how they’re going to be treated.

A Session at the 2019 Modern Language Association Convention
Robert Jackson, Sharon P. Holland, and Shawn Salvant

“Interventions” was the organizing term for the presentations of three Baldwin scholars at the Modern Language Association Convention in Chicago in January of 2019. Baldwin’s travels and activities in spaces not traditionally associated with him, including the U.S. South and West, represent interventions of a quite literal type, while his aesthetic and critical encounters with these and other cultures, including twenty-first-century contexts of racial, and racist, affect—as in the case of Raoul Peck’s 2016 film I Am Not Your Negro—provide opportunities to reconsider his work as it contributes to new thinking about race, space, property, citizenship, and aesthetics.

An Interview with James Baldwin (1969)
Rich Blint and Nazar Büyüm

This is the first English language publication of an interview with James Baldwin (1924–87) conducted by Nazar Büyüm in 1969, Istanbul, Turkey. Deemed too long for conventional publication at the time, the interview re-emerged last year and reveals Baldwin’s attitudes about his literary antecedents and influences such as Richard Wright, Langston Hughes, and Countee Cullen; his views concerning the “roles” and “duties” of a writer; his assessment of his critics; his analysis of the power and message of the Nation of Islam; his lament about the corpses that are much of the history and fact of American life; an honest examination of the relationship of poor whites to American blacks; an interrogation of the “sickness” that characterizes Americans’ commitment to the fiction and mythology of “race,” as well as the perils and seductive nature of American power.
