PROFESSOR LACEY BALDWIN SMITH - GREENSBORO - Professor Lacey Baldwin Smith died peacefully in his home on Sept.. 8, 2013, at almost 91 years old.. Professor Emeritus at.. Northwestern University.. , Evanston, Ill.. , a Guggenheim fellow, twice a Fulbright recipient, and twice recipient of the National Endowment for the Humanities award, he was considered one of the "big name" historians.. Yet, his writing was as entertaining as it was erudite.. From scholarly tomes to "English History Made Brief, Irreverent, and Pleasurable," Lacey was a consummate author, and after 60 years of writing, the majority of his books remain in print.. The biography, "Henry VIII: The Mask of Royalty," is one of the most referenced books concerning that famous and willful king.. While a historian of the distant past, in his own life, Lacey was not a man to look backwards or rest on the laurels of his youth, and so, at the age of 89, the professor penned "Anne Boleyn: The Queen of Controversy" (published 2013).. Then, 70 years after having attempted a novel during W.. W.. II in a military tent in India, he again turned his hand to what he considered the hardest form.. He completed his first work of historical fiction and sent it to the publishers days before his health began failing.. Although Lacey's writings often focused on the cut-throat and treacherous world of Tudor and Stuart monarchs, Lacey himself was a gentle and gracious man.. While he loved to talk history, he was equally happy to read mystery stories, play poker, or watch his three-year-old grandson run circles around him.. Having retired to Greensboro, the small village where he spent every summer of his life, he was a champion of the Greensboro Library, the Greensboro Historical Society, and the Greensboro Land Trust.. In the wider community, he served on the board of the American Historical Association, the American Historical Review, the Conference on British Studies, and as editor of the Journal of Modern History.. As devoted a teacher as he was a writer, he rarely forgot a student's name.. One of his last actions before his death was to write to a former undergraduate, whom he hadn't seen in decades, but who had contacted him regarding his most recent book.. The devotion he showed his students was only rivaled by that he showed his wife and children.. He was preceded in death by his wife of 43 years, Jean Reeder Smith; and is survived by his son, MacAllister Smith; daughters, Dennison Smith, and Katherine Chandler Smith-Brannon; grandsons, Chandler Smith and Steven Brannon; and granddaughter, Oceana Masterman-Smith.. A funeral and memorial will be held in Greensboro next July when Lacey's many friends and relatives return to the lake for the summer.. The family requests that, in lieu of cards or flowers, donations be made in Lacey's name to the Greensboro Land Trust:.. www.. greensborolandtrust.. org..

What emerges is a nuanced and kaleidoscopic view of the British Empire in the decades around 1800, when the British were still grappling with their new global power.. This is history simultaneously revelatory and readable, as Epstein leads his readers through a world in which very little was fixed and much was in flux, never losing his footing.. Jordanna Bailkin, University of Washington:.. The Afterlife of Empire.. (University of California Press, 2012).. Jordanna Bailkin’s boldly original.. opens up entirely new ground and maps out an ambitious agenda for future scholars of 20.. century British history.. By placing into a single analytic frame decolonization and welfare, post-war and post-colonial, Bailkin brilliantly “decolonizes” the history of welfare while showing the role of welfare in decolonization.. She allows us to see each of these much-studied developments in new ways that attend to the human dimensions of large-scale impersonal global processes through the quotidian lives of ordinary people.. Bailkin focuses on the post-WWII decades, but this compassionate study powerfully shows us that these processes continue to unfold in unexpected and profoundly consequential ways for us today..

Erik Linstrum, University of Michigan: "The Politics of Psychology in the British Empire, 1898-1960,".. Past Present.. 215 (May 2012).. Erik Linstrum’s analysis of experimental psychology and psychoanalysis in the British Empire challenges our assumptions about colonial science and what we often assume are intrinsic links between the acquisition of imperial knowledge and the project of empire itself.. While imperial infrastructures and imbalances of power certainly enabled and shaped psychological studies in African, Asia, and the West Indies, Linstrum convincingly demonstrates the importance of those studies in undermining and eventually displacing the commonplace European belief that so-called primitives had no inner lives or individual psychological complexity.. The impact of British Imperial psychology, then, was not to strengthen British Imperial racism but rather to build new, post-colonial models of the human psyche, and thus to promote the role of social scientific expertise in the emerging post-colonial states of the twentieth century..

Athens, OH 45701.. ingramr@ohio.. NACBS Dissertation Year Fellowship (2013).. Hillary Taylor, Yale University: "Voices of the People: Language, Class and Politics in Early Modern England.. ".. Ms.. Taylor’s dissertation investigates the causes and consequences of plebeian “inarticulacy” amid such socio-economic changes in Early Modern England as the expansion of the gentry, the growth of commercial and professional classes, and the emergence of a larger population of landless permanent laborers.. This innovative and ambitious approach to examining the social soundscape of plebeian England revolves around the binaries of universality/particularity and inclusion/exclusion that characterize the development of language.. Taylor’s research engages not only with the overlooked subject of the language of the lower classes, but with the daily experiences and attitudes of those at the bottom and how these affected politics, economics, and social developments during this period.. Dissertation Year Travel Grant.. Jennifer Wells, Brown University: “Prelude to empire: state-building in Cromwellian Ireland and Scotland, 1649–1660”.. In this dissertation, Ms.. Wells seeks to provide the first comprehensive analysis of state-building in Scotland and Ireland during the Interregnum from the English, Irish and Scottish perspectives.. Her project focuses on the ways that England’s proto-imperial network subdued and integrated two neighboring countries through various legal, financial, administrative, educational and religious measures as forms of legitimation to consolidate power and establish authority in the wake of violent conquest.. Its goal is to demonstrate further how English domestic state-formation evolved into an imperial framework in Ireland and Scotland in the 1650s and the ways in which modern state- and empire-building borrowed from each other during this transformation..
