FA-55067-10Research Programs: Fellowships for University TeachersEdlie L. WongFrom Emancipation to Exclusion: Contract, Citizens, and Coolies7/1/2010 - 6/30/2011$50,400.00EdlieL.Wong   University of Maryland, College ParkCollege ParkMD20742-5141USA2009American LiteratureFellowships for University TeachersResearch Programs504000504000

From Emancipation to Exclusion charts the complex intellectual legacies of slavery in the era of emancipation, when the ideals of freedom and free labor began to coalesce into a political worldview. It explores how legislators, writers, and reformers drew on the anachronistic specter of slavery in the figure of the Asiatic "coolie" to contest and configure the legal disenfranchisement of Chinese labor migrants. While some black and Asian writers protested Chinese Exclusion as an outgrowth of slavery's racial proscriptions, pro-exclusion agitators defended it as an antislavery measure in a democratic country committed to freedom. This book illuminates how these contests over post-war citizenship and national belonging led to the ratification of America's first race-specific immigration law. It adds to the growing scholarship in comparative race studies and broadens our understanding of racial slavery as historical experience, idea, and metaphor in American literary and cultural studies.

Research, writing, and development of a digital monograph on the design, construction, and changing meaning of contemporary monuments to the history of slavery.

My digital publication investigates how we visualize, interpret, and engage the slave past through contemporary monuments created for public spaces. In the past twenty-five years, there has been an upsurge in the building of three-dimensional monuments that commemorate the Middle Passage and slavery, the resistance to enslavement, the Underground Railroad, the participation of black soldiers in the Civil War, and emancipation and freedom. From Mississippi to Illinois to Rhode Island, governments (local, county, state), colleges and universities, individuals, communities, and artists are in difficult conversations about how to acknowledge the history and legacy of the slave past and its visual representation for their towns, cities, states, and higher educational institutions. These monuments and conversations are the subject of Contemporary Monuments to the Slave Past: Race, Memorialization, Public Space, and Civic Engagement.
