    Thavolia Glymph

    ABOUT THE FEATURED BOOK & AUTHOR Out of the House of Bondage (Cambridge University Press, 2008) views the plantation household as a site of production where competing visions of gender were wielded as weapons in class struggles between black and white women. Mistresses were powerful beings in the hierarchy of slavery rather than powerless victims of the same patriarchal system responsible for the oppression of the enslaved. Glymph challenges popular depictions of plantation mistresses as "friends" and "allies" of slaves and sheds light on the political importance of ostensible private struggles, and on the political agendas at work in framing the domestic as private and household relations as personal. Out of the House of Bondage is co-winner of the 2009 Taft Labor History Prize and a finalist for the 2009 Frederick Douglass Book Prize.

    Thavolia Glymph is Associate Professor of African and African American Studies and History at Duke University. In addition to Out of the House of Bondage, Professor Glymph is the author of several essays on slavery, emancipation and the U.S. Civil War and Reconstruction, economic history, and southern women. She is co-editor of Freedom: A Documentary History of Emancipation, 1861-1861, ser. 1, vol. 1;
    The Documentary of History of Emancipation, 1861-1867, ser. 1, vol. 3; The Wartime Genesis of Free Labor: The Lower South and Essays on the Postbellum Southern Economy.

    Freedom Struggles: African Americans, World War I, and Civil Rights

    Clashing with white American soldiers in the ports and villages of wartime France, African Americans fought their own "War for Democracy." In this talk, she will discuss how fighting in a Jim Crow army on foreign soil spurred black soldiers to rework their notions of nation and belonging, empire and diaspora, manhood and citizenship. This changing political consciousness spurred a dogged political activism in soldiers and civilians alike. World War I mobilized a generation and laid the groundwork for the movement that emerged in World War II.

    Lunch will be served at noon.

  • Outer Banks History Center to Help Use of Collection
    Carla Ivey, for faculty, 2009/07/21 12:19:05

    Lots of researchers turn to the Outer Banks History Center (OBHC) in Manteo for information on lighthouses, shipwrecks or even pirates. Thanks to a $40,327 grant awarded to the center from the National Historical Publications and Records Commission, that task could prove more productive. The grant will support work of a full-time archivist who will arrange and describe some of the collections for the center's "Reaching New Audiences" program.

    The Outer Banks History Center is a regional archives and research library whose collections document the social, economic, and ecological history of the Outer Banks and surrounding areas. Subjects include maritime history, commerce, local and regional history, African American, American Indian, European and Elizabethan history, the Civil War, outdoor theater, and much more.

    "This project will make finding aids available for most of the collections we have received in the last few years," explains Curator Kaeli Spiers. "The finding aids will have background information on the organization or individual and on the collection's size and format with a detailed inventory."

    Finding aids will be available at the OBHC and online. The aids indicate the number of boxes of minutes, letters or other materials in the collection. Work on the project should begin Aug. 1.

    For additional information, call (252) 473-2655. The Outer Banks History Center, within the Office of Archives and History, is part of the N.C. Department of Cultural Resources, the state agency dedicated to the promotion and protection of North Carolina's arts, history and culture. It is now podcasting 24/7 with information about the Department of Cultural Resources, all available at www.ncculture.com <http://www.ncculture.com/>

  • April 18, 2008 - Research Triangle Seminar in the History of the Military, War, and Society
    Carla Ivey, for grad, 2008/04/08 11:31:07


    Sigrun Haude (University of Cincinnati)

    Dealing with the Reality of the Thirty Years' War (1618-1648): The Story of Two Religious Women

    Friday, April 18, 2008 4:00 - 6:00 pm, Duke University
    East Campus, Carr Building, Room 229, 114 Campus Drive

    The seminar starts at 4:15 pm. Refreshments will be served before the seminar.

    A pre-circulated paper is available a week in advance at dirk.bonker@duke.edu.

    The presentation concentrates on two autobiographical documents, the diaries of Klara Staiger, prioress of the Augustinian cloister Mariastein near Eichstaett, and the recordings of Anna Maria Junius, nun of the Dominican cloister Heiligengrab in Bamberg. By looking at personal accounts of the war, we turn the focus on the individual, and, with the two religious women, on a couple of very select persons. However, their diaries and chronicles regularly direct their attention beyond the personal and thus reflect a wider circle of contemporaries. A critical reading of these two testimonies in the broader context of other contemporary voices reveals both the commonalty and the uniqueness of their experience, and sheds light on how people managed to survive the war. Klara Staiger led her convent through flights, the destruction and rebuilding of their cloister, poverty, and other frightful experiences of the war, while Anna Maria Junius was part of a group of nuns that held out in their convent as the war raged on around them. Though their situations were quite different, the two women showed great pragmatism in navigating the war and a willingness to exploit all options - orthodox and unorthodox - to ensure their survival.

    SIGRUN HAUDE is Associate Professor of History at the University of Cincinnati. Her main fields of research are the history of reformation, Early Modern European History, and the history of Christianity, European History, in particular the history of Anabaptism and the Radical Reformation, and the history of the Thirty Years' War. Her publications include: In the Shadow of "Savage Wolves": Anabaptist Munster and the German Reformation during the 1530s (Boston, 2000).

    Carla Ivey, for grad, 2008/03/25 16:29:48

    "The Stench of Success: Anchovies, protein politics, and the making of a fishmeal empire in Peru and Chile, 1950-2000" presentation by Kristin Wintersteen (PhD candidate, Duke Department of History)

    Kristin will present some preliminary findings from her dissertation research, which traces the history of the fishmeal industry as Peru and Chile grappled with environmental limits and powerful interest groups within a shifting international political, socio-economic, and legal landscape since the 1950s. Fishmeal is a flour-like substance used in fertilizers and high-protein animal feeds. This global commodity helped fuel the rapid expansion of chicken, hog, and fish farming in the developed world after World War II and catapulted Peru and Chile into the ranks of the world's top fishing nations. Kristin's research seeks to understand how actors in these two states--linked by a shared marine ecosystem and the devastating consequences of El Niño--responded to common challenges, and how together they shaped this massive protein transfer along global food commodity chains from the world's most productive marine ecosystem to the dinner plates of first-world consumers.

  • July 10, 2007 - Job Diarists for Chronicle of Higher Education
    Carla Ivey, for grad, 2007/07/10 14:35:57

    The Chronicle's Careers section is looking for graduate students, postdocs, faculty members, and administrators who will be on the job market in the 2007-8 academic year and would be interested in keeping a diary of their job search.

    Since 1998, we've featured the job-market stories of academics in a variety of disciplines. They've written regular, first-person accounts throughout the year of their attempts to find a faculty or administrative job in academe, and in a few cases, a nonacademic job.

    (You can read their columns at http://chronicle.com/jobs/news/archives/author_list_fp.html on the site.)

    If you have a flair for writing, here's an opportunity to use it and get paid. We select about 8 to 12 diarists a year; each writes three to five columns over the course of the year about his or her job search. Those selected will be paid $500 for each column they write that is accepted for publication. What you need to do:

    • Send us a sample column submission by August 14. If selected, your column will be published on our site in the fall as the first entry in your job-search diary.
    • The sample column should be between 1,200 and 1,600 words, written in a conversational, journalistic style. It should tell us about your background, career goals, constraints, and job situation in the context of broader issues involving the job market in your field and academic culture.
    • Humor is a plus!

  • May 16, 2007 - May 16, 2007 - Transatlantic (Post) Graduate Workshop - UNC, Institute for Arts & Humanities, Hyde Hall
    Carla Ivey, for grad, 2007/04/11 09:37:00

    The University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill and Duke University are pleased to announce the Transatlantic (Post) Graduate Workshop GENDER, EXPERIENCE, AND MEMORY, 18th - 20th CENTURIES


    This workshop is designed to bring together graduate and postdoctoral students from Britain, Germany, and the United States to discuss recent approaches to the history of experience and memory from a gendered perspective. The workshop will discuss case studies from East and West European, Caribbean, Latin American, and North American history (18-20th centuries). Its goals are to help (post)graduate students to integrate the gender dimension more systematically into their research on experiences and memory and to conceptualize more clearly terms such as/ Erfahrung/, experience,/ Gedachtnis/, memory, and memoire/.  More broadly, the workshop will promote comparative and trans-national research that includes gender as one important category of analysis.

    The themes of this workshop will complement the subsequent international conference, "Gender, War, and Politics: Wars of Revolution and Liberation - Transatlantic Comparisons, 1775-1820," which will take place at the UNC Center for Arts and Humanities from 17-19 May 2007.  The workshop will thus provide a crucial link between ongoing research at the senior level and the emerging interests and work of graduate students.


    Participation is free, but prior registration is required.  Please register by April 30, 2007.
    Send an email to Laurence Hare (hare@email.unc.edu) and indicate, in which of the parallel panels you wish to participate.

  • Method & Meaning Workshop, 31 March-1 April 2006
    Carla Ivey, for grad, 2006/03/02 15:19:44

    As part of the Carnegie Initiative, the second- year graduate students in the Department of History have organized a two-day event on 31 March and April 1, 2006: METHOD & MEANING: A WORKSHOP IN HISTORICAL APPROACH AND INTERPRETATION The purpose of the workshop is to bring together scholars and graduate students to interrogate the relationship between method and meaning in historical inquiry. We have invited participants to discuss their current research while addressing this central question. Although we aim to engage scholars who practice a wide variety of approaches, we are particularly interested in centering the workshop on those historical fields and approaches that are 1) untraditional, or 2) have experienced a recent revival and/or re-imagining in recent years. In six different panels, our participants will explore the problems and possibilities of studying visual culture, religious experience, biography, environmental history, premodern sexualities, and transnationalism. All panels will convene in the Boyd Seminar Room. Scheduling details have yet to be confirmed, but will follow soon. Our panels and panelists thus far include: UNDERSTANDING VISUAL CULTURE Peter Wood, Department of History, Duke University John Thompson, Department of History, Duke University Patricia Leighten, Department of Art History, Duke University Katharine French-Fuller, Department of History, Duke University WRITING ABOUT RELIGIOUS EXPERIENCE Thomas Robischeaux, Department of History, Duke University Susan Thorne, Department of History, Duke University Jenny Wood Crowley, Department of History, Duke University Jacob Remes, Department of History, Duke University WRITING BIOGRAPHY Gerda Lerner, Department of History, Duke University Alex Roland, Department of History, Duke University Yvonne Wallace-Fuentes, Department of History, Duke University CENTERING NATURE: HUMANS, HISTORY AND THE ENVIRONMENT John Richards, Department of History, Duke University Matthew Booker, Department of History, North Carolina State University Kristin Wintersteen, Department of History, Duke University INTERPRETING PREMODERN SEXUALITIES: CATEGORIES, REPRESENTATIONS AND PRACTICES Marc Schacter, Department of Romance Studies, Duke University Christina Ramos, Department of History, Duke University Maren Wood, Department of History, UNC Chapel Hill MAPPING THE TRANSNATIONAL Sucheta Mazumdar, Department of History, Duke University Janet Ewald, Department of History, Duke University Eric Weber, Department of History, Duke University We hope to see you at the workshop!

    This year there will be new procedures regarding applying for replacement teaching (for 2006-07). In the past, we have asked graduate students who are interested in teaching to propose their own courses. We have found, however, that new courses do not enroll well, as a rule, so we are asking you to inform us of two different kinds of courses you could offer: We ask that you tell us 1)which of the courses already "on the books" and offered by our faculty you would be able to teach, as well as 2) what appealing, broadly conceived special topics course you could offer. This second kind of course is what we formerly asked of you, but we often got VERY idiosyncratic offerings. Specialized courses based on your own research are NOT appropriate, nor is anything that is not transparent to undergraduates. We are willing to consider courses which have been offered successfully beforeI order to put your name "in the hat" you will, of course, have to consult with the relevant faculty members to find out what they're planning to offer and/or whether it is likely that they will be on leave. Please note that all courses taught by graduate students are capped at 35, but you will assume the curricular "codes" of any existing course you stand in for. A completed application for teaching will consist of the following, submitted both in hard copy and electronically to me, Kristen Neuschel (kneusche@duke.edu), by December 10: 1)A cover letter in which you a) name the courses already on the books for which you wish to be considered b)identify your own course(s) you would be ready to teach c) briefly outline your previous teaching experience d)discuss the results of your conversations with relevant faculty and e) describe your current status in the graduate program and the appropriateness of the teaching obligations you seek for your own progress towards the degree (note that independent teaching assignments are usually reserved for students who are ABD). 2)A c.v. 3)Syllabi or, failing that, outlines for your own proposed course(s ) and/or for any faculty course you are proposing to take over. 4)Teaching evaluations, if any are available.
