    A senior historian at the Thomas Jefferson Foundation at Monticello, Stanton assembles nine essays published from 1993 to 2010, and adds two that appear here for the first time. The only changes she has made to the earlier essays is to cite sources that have been published subsequently, and to provide the full name of enslaved people if that has become known. Among the topics are Jefferson and his slaves, domestic servants in his White House, rational plantation management at Monticello, Jefferson through the eyes of his slaves, the Hemings family and Charlottesville, and descendants of Monticello's African American families.

  • The 'White Other' in American Intermarriage Stories, 1945-2008 (Signs of Race)

    By Lauren S. Cardon

    Fictional depictions of intermarriage can illuminate perceptions of both 'ethnicity' and 'whiteness' at any given historical moment. Popular examples such as Lucy and Ricky in I Love Lucy (1951-1957), Joanna and John in Guess Who's Coming to Dinner (1967), Toula and Ian in My Big Fat Greek Wedding (2002) helped raise questions about national identity: does 'American' mean 'white' or a blending of ethnicities? Building on previous studies by scholars of intermarriage and identity, this study is an ambitious endeavor to discern the ways in which literature and films from the 1960s through 2000s rework nineteenth- and early-twentieth-century intermarriage tropes. Unlike earlier stories, these narratives position the white partner as the 'other' and serve as useful frameworks for assessing ethnic and American identity. Lauren S. Cardon sheds new light on ethno-racial solidarity and the assimilation of different ethnicities into American dominant culture.
