Making men: Enlightenment ideas of racial engineering.

Am Hist Rev 2010 ;115(5):1364-94

Univ. of Texas, Austin, and Univ. of Cambridge, UK.

This essay suggests a colonial and Enlightenment genealogy for racial ideas more commonly associated with the nineteenth and twentieth centuries.

Rival ecologies of global commerce: Adam Smith and the natural historians.

Am Hist Rev 2010 ;115(5):1342-63

Univ. of Chicago.

This essay explores how the defense of global commerce pioneered in the Enlightenment was tied to the improvement of the natural order.

Together they constitute the beginnings of an ongoing quarrel over the environmental foundation of capitalism. Read More

The League of Nations' rescue of Armenian genocide survivors and the making of modern humanitarianism, 1920-1927.

Am Hist Rev 2010 ;115(5):1315-39

Univ. of California, Davis.

The essay centers of the efforts by the League of Nations to rescue women and children survivors of the 1915 Armenian Genocide. This rescue -- a seemingly unambiguous good -- was at once a constitutive act in drawing the boundaries of the international community, a key moment in the definition of humanitarianism, and a site of resistance to the colonial presence in the post-Ottoman Eastern Mediterranean. Drawing from a wide range of source materials in a number of languages, including Turkish, Armenian, and Arabic, the essay brings the intellectual and social context of humanitarianism in initiating societies together with the lived experience of humanitarianism in the places where the act took form.
