imperialism · womanhood

made for now

Happiness is getting through an “American Civilization Since 1865” lecture and saying all that you want to say and then some about empire – even as it emerges in complex ways around one of your favorites singers.  The correspondences between how she’s seen and sees others poses tensions with Sojourner Truth and the unnamed “colored” belle in turn of the century Puerto Rico.

Looking forward to pushing my own thinking as I return to these matters and more in my “Antebellum America” class Wednesday.
