Incommensurate Narratives: the Problem of Synthesis and New Paradigms. October 16, 2011


Invited Lectures ; Sarah Deutsch ; The paper discusses new paradigms, including New Imperial and transnational, and their benefits and drawbacks for rewriting a history of the U.S. West in the early 20th century. For example, while these paradigms have heightened attention to the circuits by which white supremacy movements travelled with skilled workers from the British Isles to Australia, South Africa, and the Pacific Northwest, they have elided other circuits by which more inclusive anarchist movements travelled (including the circuits of the Spanish empire) and the hemispheric circuits of women's movements.
