Collective Statement by Scholars in U.S. History and Related Fields on Civil Rights and Liberties in Dangerous Times

As scholars of United States history and related fields, we have experienced concern and alarm as we went from a divisive campaign season to the election of Donald Trump as our president-elect. On the eve of a new administration whose key players have traded in hateful rhetoric and emboldened the harassment of various targets, we urge Americans to be vigilant against a mass violation of civil rights and liberties that could result if such troubling developments continue unchecked.

We sign this statement as individual scholars. Institutions are listed for identification purposes only.

Click here to see the full statement as well as the list of over 1,200 scholars who have signed.

Call for Proposals for November 2017 National Humanities Conference

National Humanities Conference
The Federation of State Humanities Councils & The National Humanities Alliance
Call for Proposals
Boston, Massachusetts
Thursday, November 2, 2017 through Sunday November 5, 2017

The Federation of State Humanities Councils and the National Humanities Alliance are pleased to announce the 2017 National Humanities Conference. The National Humanities Conference brings the humanities community together as a whole to explore how we can achieve broader public impact and advance the role the humanities play in addressing both local and global challenges.

The 2017 conference asks how humanities practitioners and scholars can deepen, expand, and even re-envision the public role of the humanities. Increasingly, humanists are working to ensure that scholarship, pedagogy, public programs, and preservation play a key role in addressing complex issues of public concern. Cutting-edge scholarship has engendered productive public conversation on divisive issues. Public humanities programs have addressed challenges ranging from climate change to closing the achievement gap. Preservation projects have created the foundations to explore community identity and placemaking. New trends in pedagogy—both at the K-12 and college levels—challenge students to integrate the humanities and STEM in order to think about social and scientific problems holistically and develop novel solutions. These projects take on a multitude of shapes, but they are all impact-driven and all have the humanities at their core.

Together, we will explore these practices and identify ways that a wide-range of collaborations might be drawn on to think even more expansively about the humanities and public life. Building on the 2016 conference's outcomes, we will explore how collaborative approaches can expand the ways that scholars work in a public context; showcase the importance of the humanities in addressing local and global challenges; redefine and expand audiences; and enable new approaches to case-making that draw on quantitative and qualitative data to tell the story of the humanities. We will also examine how collaborations that extend beyond the humanities community—to civic and community organizations, government agencies, STEM fields, and the private sector—create new areas of impact.

Frank Lloyd Wright and the Buffalo School of Arts and Crafts

At the turn of the century, the Buffalo, NY region was an innovative hub of U.S. industry as well as the epicenter of the American Arts and Crafts movement. The area boasted the lion's share of the most influential figures in American Arts and Crafts such as Frank Lloyd Wright, Charles Rohlfs, Gustav Stickley, Adelaide Robineau, Elbert Hubbard, Dard Hunter, Karl Kipp, among so many others—not to mention Buffalo Pottery, Heintz Metalwork, The Arts and Crafts Shop, etc. On the occasion of the 150th birthday of architect Frank Lloyd Wright, this international conference seeks to address the relation between Buffalo's Arts and Crafts innovators, the industrial prowess and character of the region, and the forces that shaped the Buffalo School of Arts and Crafts in this country and abroad.

Please visit www.art.buffalo.edu/buffaloschoolconference for more information. We invite scholars and graduate students to submit abstracts (maximum 500 words) along with a CV by April 15th, 2017. Sponsored travel and accommodations available for selected participants.

Inheritance Practices in the 20th Century

Workshop at the German Historical Institute Washington, DC
"Inheritance Practices in the 20th Century"

Tentative dates: 9/14/2017 – 9/16/2017
Conveners: Jürgen Dinkel (University of Gießen), Simone Lässig (GHI Washington), Vanessa Ogle (University of Pennsylvannia)

Topic
American baby boomers stand to inherit about $11.6 trillion in the coming years. The distribution of this wealth will be highly unequal, however. Households in the wealthiest decile will receive by far the biggest inheritances, an estimated $1.5 million per heir on average. By contrast, heirs in the poorest decile will receive an average of $27,000. Enormous and unequal intergenerational wealth transfers are expected in other regions of the world as well.
Despite the substantial contribution of inheritance practices to social inequality in societies and individual families, we know very little about the distribution of inherited money and assets in the period since the late nineteenth century. Thomas Piketty's bestselling Capital in the Twenty-First Century has spurred heightened interest in the question of inherited wealth and its relation to rising inequality over the course of the past century.
Although historians have published extensively on inheritance law and practices in earlier periods in a variety of world regions and among different social groups, the twentieth century remains largely unexplored. This workshop thus seeks to bring together the history of inheritance and contemporary history. We want to examine and compare how property and property rights were distributed upon death in different world regions, urban settings, and social groups from the late nineteenth century to the present. We want to analyze how wealth transfers influenced family and kinship in terms of individual life plans, intra-family relations (including sibling and gender dynamics), intergenerational relations, questions of race, social inequality, notions of risk and entrepreneurship, and mobility (including transnational migration). While the legal frameworks for inheritance are important and will be considered in connection with the questions the workshop address, we are primarily interest ed in inheritance practices. Specifically, we seek to analyze what strategies (wills, trusts, inheritance agreements, etc.) testators used to distribute which parts of their property to which heirs and what factors determined their choice of heirs and the apportionment of property and assets among them. We are also interested in increasingly common strategies used to minimize different taxes on inheritances, such as the use of tax havens and low-tax jurisdictions for setting up trusts and the like. Additional questions include: What significance did kinship possess vis-à-vis personal relationships with persons who were not kin to the testator? What conditions were placed on inheritances and what role did inheritance play in the lives of the heirs?
By examining inheritance practices, the workshop aims to provide new insights into the structure and meaning of personal networks (like family and kinship relations) in the twentieth century. The workshop's focus on inherited property is also intended to shed new light on continuities and discontinuities in social inequality in families and in societies. Finally, the workshop will explore the interdependence between public, social, and economic welfare structures, on the one hand, and private family and kinship networks, on the other hand, in the modern age.

We seek papers that deal with one or more of the following groups of questions:

1. Social differentiation: Which kinds of relationships influenced inheritance practices (age, gender, social milieu, religion, generation, status, race, cultural, political, and legal context)? What impact did inheritance practices have on the structure of social milieus and family networks? In certain colonial and post-colonial contexts as well as in some countries, including the United States, anti-miscegenation laws at times prohibited passing on inheritances to spouses and offspring from interracial marriages. How did inheritance practices contribute to the growth and reproduction of social and racial inequality?

2. Property: How did the amount and composition of wealth to be passed down affect inheritance practices? What if there was no property? What about the inheritance of debts? How did the relative significance of different types of property change over the course of the twentieth century? What impact did the rise of finance and financialization have on inheritance?

3. Social actors: What forms did estate planning take over the course of the twentieth century? How did the outlooks of testators and heirs toward the future affect inheritance practices? How did expectations of an inheritance (or of not receiving an inheritance) affect the life planning of heirs? What organizations and professionals – so-called wealth managers – (lawyers, accountants, bankers, notaries, religious institutions) influenced the transfer of wealth in the twentieth century?

4. Periodization: The history of bequeathing and inheriting has barely been periodized. What continuities and/or discontinuities can we see in inheritance practices during the twentieth century? How might we periodize and explain possible changes?

Format
Papers will be pre-circulated four weeks in advance, and at the workshop participants will deliver short introductory remarks to start the discussion. These remarks will be no longer than ten minutes. A publication might follow. The language of the papers and the workshop will be English.
The GHI will provide a lump sum to participants for travel, and we are currently seeking further financial support. To apply, please send a 500 word abstract and a one-page cv to fabricius@ghi-dc.org by Feb 28, 2017. If you have further questions please contact Jürgen Dinkel: dinkel@ghi.dc.org

Vernacular Architecture Forum Buchanan Award

The Vernacular Architecture Forum seeks nominations for the Paul E. Buchanan Award.

The award was instituted by VAF in 1993 to recognize contributions to the study and preservation of vernacular architecture and the cultural landscape that do not take the form of books or published work. Hundreds of studies, reports, documentation projects, restoration plans, National Register nominations, exhibits, video/digital media productions and public programs are completed each year without the benefit of distribution or recognition beyond the limited audience for which they were commissioned. Nonetheless, many of these efforts can serve to inform and inspire us all. The award is named for Paul E. Buchanan who served for over thirty years as the Director of Architectural Research at the Colonial Williamsburg Foundation. Buchanan set the standard for architectural fieldwork in America and inspired many VAF members in the rewards of fieldwork. This award honors the valuable work that most of our members and professional associates perform.

Eligibility:
Projects completed in the last two years are eligible for consideration and may include, but are not limited to:

The application deadline for the 2017 Buchanan Award is February 17, 2017.

Mark S. Foster

Mark S. Foster, Professor Emeritus, University of Colorado Denver, (May 2, 1939 - October 21, 2016) was a prolific scholar of twentieth-century American history, authoring eleven books, plus dozens of articles. Among his most well-known books are From Streetcar to Superhighway: American City Planners and Urban Transportation 1900 1940 (1981); Henry J. Kaiser: Builder in the Modern American West (1989); and Castles in the Sand: The Life and Times of Carl G. Fisher (2000). Foster was a life member of the Organization of American Historians, and had been a member for almost 50 years.

Foster taught at the University of Colorado Denver for thirty-three years, beginning in 1972 at what was then a young campus, and retiring in 2005, having helped the university grow toward maturity. His dynamic teaching and intense dedication transformed many students into enthusiastic historians. He loved nothing more than sharing his excitement and apparently infinite knowledge about history with everyone—students and colleagues, as well as friends in any setting.

That excitement about history combined with Foster's avid sportsmanship to produce three scholarly books and many articles on the history of baseball in Colorado. The combination also energized decades of participation in nineteenth-century vintage baseball. In addition, that blend of historian and sportsman animated countless guest lectures in which Foster wore his vintage baseball uniform, alternating between the voice of an 1870s-era gentleman with decidedly illiberal attitudes and his historian's voice.

Foster earned his B.A. in Philosophy at Brown University in 1961. At the University of Southern California, he earned a Master's degree in 1968 and a Ph.D. in 1971, both in American history. His research and teaching won numerous honors at CU Denver, including Teacher of the Year in 1983 and Researcher of the Year in 2001, plus the University of Colorado Medal in 2007.

Contributions are welcome to the Mark Foster Scholarship in History Fund at the University of Colorado Denver.
