  1. Blood at the Root: Lynching as American Cultural Nucleus Winner of the 2009 SUNY Press Dissertation/First Book Prize in African American Studies Examines the relationship of lynching to black and white citizenship in the nineteenth- and twentieth-century U.S. through a focus on historical, visual, cultural, and literary texts. In Blood at the Root, winner of the 2009 SUNY Press Dissertation/First Book Prize in African American Studies, Jennie Lightweis-Goff examines the centrality of lynching to American culture, focusing particularly on the ways in which literature, popular culture, and art have constructed the illusion of secrecy and obsolescence to conceal the memory of violence. Including critical study of writers and artists like Ida B. Wells-Barnett, Richard Wright, William Faulkner, George Schuyler, and Kara Walker, Lightweis-Goff also incorporates her personal experience in the form of a year-long travelogue of visits to lynching sites. Her research and travel move outside the American South and rural locales to demonstrate the fiction of confining racism to certain areas of the country and the denial of collective responsibility for racial violence. Lightweis-Goff seeks to implicate societal attitude in the actions of the few and to reveal the legacy of violence that has been obscured by more valiant memories in the public sphere. In exploring the ways that spatial and literary texts replace lynching with proclamations of innocence and regret, Lightweis-Goff argues that racial violence is an incompletely erupted trauma of American life whose very hiddenness links the past to still-present practices of segregation and exclusion. “This spirited study offers a challenge to the quarantining of racist atrocities to the South by bringing back the ‘ghosts of the past,’ as Morrison does in Beloved.” — Carole Boyce Davies, author of Left of Karl Marx: The Political Life of Black Communist Claudia Jones, Professor of Africana Studies and English, Cornell University Jennie Lightweis-Goff is the American Council of Learned Societies New Faculty Fellow in English and Gender and Sexuality Studies at Tulane University. She received a PhD in English and Graduate Certificates in Gender and Africana Studies from the University of Rochester. http://www.sunypress.edu/p-5167-blood-at-the-root.aspx (Disclosure: board posting submitted by the author's partner, Phillip Lightweis-Goff.
