1. Bartels, Rusty. "“Where American Armed Forces Have Served Overseas”: The American Battle Monuments Commission and the Implications of Overseas American Military Commemoration" Paper presented at the annual meeting of the American Studies Association Annual Meeting, TBA, Denver, Colorado, <Not Available>. 2019-06-25 <http://citation.allacademic.com/meta/p1133327_index.html>
Publication Type: Internal Paper
Abstract: War’s legacies continue to haunt civilian communities long after the end of war, whether it’s the disabled veteran returned home to domestic life in the United States, or the transformation of communities, landscapes, and geographies near war zones. For the United States, war has almost always been a global phenomenon, and with global wars comes global commemoration. Many Americans travel overseas to visit sites of famous historical conflicts and trauma - the Western Front, Verdun, Auschwitz, the Berlin Wall, Manila - often inspired by family connections, patriotic duty, or intellectual curiosity.

Once overseas, these visitors will likely encounter a site managed by the American Battle Monuments Commission (ABMC), an agency of the executive branch of the US Government, designated the “guardian of America’s overseas commemorative cemeteries and memorials,” that “honors the service, achievements and sacrifice of U.S. Armed Forces.” These overseas sites of American martial memory shape the domestic fabric of the surrounding communities, serving as a constant reminder of the legacy of war. While most of ABMC’s memorials are dedicated to WWI and WWII in Europe and the Pacific Theater, they also include sites marking the Korean War, Spanish-American War, Mexican-American War, and defense of the Panama Canal. These cemeteries and memorials continue to mark the US’ imperial reach, commemorating in place servicemen who fought and died for imperial endeavors. This paper will follow the origins, mission, current organization of the ABMC to theorize the implications that overseas American military commemoration has for domestic daily life and political relations

Abstract: In the wake of 9/11, intelligence reforms have sought to resolve problems of stovepiping, intelligence sharing, and program management in Washington. The result has been the increase in centralized bureaucracy. However, analysis of the future challenges to national security have highlighted the importance of improved policies and practices related to collection and joint operations far away from Washington, in very dynamic operating environments. Advocates of recent proposals for reform argue that greater authorities at the top of the intelligence establishment will aid operations in the field; others say they will confuse and frustrate long standing relationships among the military, law enforcement, diplomatic and intelligence officers, leading to losses in capabilities that may last for years. In addition, critics of aggressive cooperation among these officers within the US, point to civil liberties issues that have yet to be resolved. Five years after 9-11, what does the record show and how do we measure success and failure?

Abstract: The experience of female Overseas Filipino Workers (OFW), particularly domestic workers in the United States, is characterized by isolation from the nuclear family and has often resulted in alienation from children and spouses. The popularity and affordability of cellphones in the Philippines coupled with the adoption of the Global System for Mobile Communications (GSM) in the U.S. has led to the frequent use of the Short Message Service (SMS) or text messaging. This capacity for real-time communication has facilitated the reassertion of mothering, mitigating the isolation and dislocation that comes with a transnational family structure. Cellphone technology has empowered these women, creating new ways to “mother” their children across time and space. While allowing the deep-seated ideological beliefs of traditional mothering to continue, these mothers are also simultaneously reinventing transnational motherhood. Furthermore, this use of cellphone technology can be read as both a form of resistance against and repression from the political economic reality that has led these women to leave their families in the first place.
