Abstract: This paper centers on a longstanding puzzle of political and comparative historical sociology, namely, “what is the relationship between politics and society?” A potentially fruitful site for the working out of that relationship is the literature on working class formation, but that field of inquiry has been divided between objectivist and subjectivist approaches, both of which are largely silent on the impact of political parties. Objectivists claim that class formation proceeds logically from actors’ structural location vis-à-vis the relations of production. Subjectivists by contrast insist that workers come to identify as a class through experiences such as labor disputes. Drawing on the case of mid-nineteenth-century Chicago, I take a subjectivist stance, but suggest that workers recognized themselves as a class in the context of party politics. Specifically, I argue that Chicago workers began to understand themselves as a class when Republicans and Democrats embraced free market liberalism after the Civil War. The city's workingmen viewed the shift in political discourse as a betrayal of their military service and the promise of the war, which they understood to be nothing less than the emancipation of industrial workers.

3. Barlow, Tani. "Area under Erasure: Commodity Markets and Distribution in Treaty Port China, 1844-1949" Paper presented at the annual meeting of the Association for Asian Studies - Annual Conference, Sheraton Hotel & Towers, Chicago, Illinois, <Not Available>. 2019-06-17 <http://citation.allacademic.com/meta/p931228_index.html>
Publication Type: Panel Paper
Abstract: An area under erasure means that no matter how one seeks to deny its necessity, area will always rematerialize, so it is futile to propose area studies abandon area. Instead rather than presume an area when national sovereignty is invoked why not discern other area, corporate imperialist marketing systems for instance. Seeing as how British American Tobacco, Standard Oil of New York, Toyoda Automatic Loom Works (later Toyota Motor Company) and Brunner Mond Corporation successfully marketed product on the China mainland during the late Qing (1844-1911), Beiyang (1911-28), and Republican (1928-49) periods the paper notes what surfaces when sovereignty is not the default. Commodity markets are not self-explanatory or spontaneous events but liminal and strategically designed. Transnational corporations market tested advertising campaigns and developed effective zones for selling. Smaller firms developed distribution avenues in lieu of old peddling circuits. Finally, brands registered in China were also distributed in other parts of Asia, e.g., French Indo China, South Asia, Korea, North China – which further complicates the meaning of the terms sovereign, region and area. “Area” ends up being inescapable, but area is not simply a region, a nation or a language, but evidentially and meaningfully a “market,” as well.

4. Cordin, Carla. "The 'Noble' Russian Jurist: Anatoly F. Koni (1844-1927) and the Creation of Exemplary Figures and Professional Images Through Biographical and Autobiographical Writing" Paper presented at the annual meeting of the ASEEES Convention, Philadelphia Marriott Downtown, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, <Not Available>. 2019-06-17 <http://citation.allacademic.com/meta/p1020781_index.html>
Publication Type: Panel Paper
Abstract: Anatoly Koni was a well-known jurist in late Imperial Russia and one of the first to work in the modern judicial system, implemented by Tsar Aleksandr II in 1864. As a state prosecutor he was constantly involved in conflicts between autocratic rule and individual rights. This presentation focuses on Koni’s use of biographical and autobiographical writing to shape his profession (and himself). A close look at these practices will give an insight not only into affinities and values, which were important for a liberal figure such as Koni to play a worthwhile role in Tsarist Russia but allows also to understand how powerful this creation of exemplary figures and professional images remains unto the present day.

Review Method: Peer Reviewed
Abstract: This paper is part of a dissertation that explores how the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, commonly called Mormons, managed changes in key religious beliefs and practices across their history. This paper demonstrates how the church managed the sudden death of their founder and economic, social, political, legal, and military leader, the charismatic Joseph Smith, in the absence of any plan for succession and in the context of immense contestation from within and attacks from without. I argue that Brigham Young was able to gain control of most of the church during this period via a strategy that combined the cultural schema of divine revelation with the material resources of power in the church in a way that produced a new enduring social structure, routinized charisma that remained charismatic.
