Intellectual Manhood

University, Self, and Society in the Antebellum South

In this in-depth and detailed history, Timothy J. Williams reveals that antebellum southern higher education did more than train future secessionists and proslavery ideologues. It also fostered a growing world of intellectualism flexible enough to marry the era's middle-class value system to the honor-bound worldview of the southern gentry. By focusing on the students' perspective and drawing from a rich trove of their letters, diaries, essays, speeches, and memoirs, Williams narrates the under examined story of education and manhood at the University of North Carolina, the nation's first public university. Every aspect of student life is considered, from the formal classroom and the vibrant curriculum of private literary societies to students' personal relationships with each other, their families, young women, and college slaves. In each of these areas, Williams sheds new light on the cultural and intellectual history of young southern men, and in the process dispels commonly held misunderstandings of southern history. Williams's fresh perspective reveals that students of this era produced a distinctly southern form of intellectual masculinity and maturity that laid the foundation for the formulation of the post–Civil War South.

Slavery on trial

law, abolitionism, and print culture

Author: Jeannine Marie DeLombard

DeLombard examines how debates over slavery in the three decades before the Civil War employed legal language to "try" the case for slavery in the court of public opinion via popular print media. The country's legal consciousness was high during the era that saw the imprisonment of abolitionist editor William Lloyd Garrison, the execution of slave revolutionary Nat Turner, and the hangings of John Brown and his Harpers Ferry coconspirators. DeLombard discusses how this consciousness was evident in the "trials" over slavery found in the autobiographies of Frederick Douglass, a scandal narrative about Sojourner Truth, a speech by Henry David Thoreau, fiction by Harriet Beecher Stowe, and a proslavery novel by William McCreary Burwell.

„Welch gesegnetes Unterfangen und rühmenswerter Eifer, den Menschen mit der (schreibenden) Hand zu predigen und ihnen das Heil schweigend darzureichen!“ Mit diesen Worten preist Cassiodor die Arbeit seiner Mönche in dem von ihm gegründeten Kloster Vivarium bei Squillace in Unteritalien. Diese Arbeit bestand vor allem im Kopieren der Werke der antiken Literatur; Cassiodors spätantiker Klosterbetrieb wurde in der Folgezeit Vorbild für viele Schreibstuben des Mittelalters, und ohne die Mönche des Vivarium wäre die Literatur der Antike größtenteils verlorengegangen. Ziel der vorliegender Arbeit ist es, neben der quellengeschichtlichen Analyse des langen und vielfältigen Traditionszusammenhanges, in welchem Cassiodor steht, auch diejenigen Aspekte an Cassiodors Schaffen und Persönlichkeit aufzuzeigen, die von der bisherigen Forschung eher vernachlässigt worden sind ( u.a. kompositorische Eigenart und stilistischer Rang der Institutiones). “What a blessed purpose and praiseworthy zeal to preach to men with the (writing) hand and silently to offer them salvation!” In these words, Cassiodorus praised the work of his monks in the monastery he founded at Vivarium near Squillace in southern Italy. This work consisted primarily of copying works of classical literature; Cassiodorus’s monastic workshop in late antiquity later became the model for many scriptoria of the Middle Ages, and without the monks of Vivarium, much of classical literature would have been lost. As well as examining and analysing the historical sources of the long and varied tradition in which Cassiodorus stands, this study seeks to show those aspects of Cassiodorus’s work and character which have been somewhat neglected in previous research (including compositional characteristics and the stylistic level of the institution).
