In the wake of the deaths of Michael Brown, Aiyana Jones, Eric Garner, John Crawford, Tamir Price, Ezell Ford, and too many others, and the ostensible inability of the law or the legal system to provide something resembling "justice" in the aftermath of these deaths by police violence, it is impossible not to consider the implications of a legally imposed condition of misery on Black bodies in the U.S. This panel takes up the meeting's call to consider a "long and changing past" of misery by asking how the historical imbrication of U.S. law and race - most obvious and yet still most crucial to analyze in slavery - further structures conditions of misery for Black Americans.

Taking up the 2015 SSAWW conference theme of "Liminal Spaces, Hybrid Lives," this panel will investigate work produced by women in the United States at the turn of the twentieth century for whom human interaction with the landscape was a central artistic concern. These women oriented themselves to the landscape through travel and exploration, desire and consumption, and through artistic representation reimagined the body, history, social-sexual formations, racial and gender categories, and sometimes humanness itself. Such reorienting encounters with landscape, meanwhile, formed part of late-nineteenth-century leisure class tourism and the romantic consumption of the natural world at a moment of expanded U.S. imperialism both at home and abroad.
