"Immigrant Lawyers and the Changing Face of the U.S. Legal Profession"
Ethan Michelson (pp. 105-111)
As sites of globalization, law schools are creating new legal experts who will reinvent the future meaning of being a lawyer and doing a lawyer's work.
History and Memory
“'An Apartment to Remember': Palestinian Memory in the Israeli Landscape"
Barbara E. Mann (pp. 83-115)
This essay offers a site-specific reading of Jaffa Slope Park, a newly opened public space on the city's coastal border, in relation to both Ajami, the largely Arab neighborhood upon whose ruins it was built, and Ayman Sikseck's memoiristic novel, To Jaffa (Hebrew, 2010).

"The Anthropology of Transcultural Storytelling: Oui mon commandant! and Amadou Hampâté Bâ's Ethnographic Didacticism"
Justin Izzo (pp. 1-18)
This article examines the relationship between literary virtuosity and ethnographic exposition in Oui mon commandant!, the second volume of memoirs by Malian writer and anthropologist Amadou Hampâté Bâ. Oui mon commandant!'s ethnographic didacticism provokes us to reimagine anthropology and cosmopolitanism as narratives of modernity with African genealogies.
Transactions of the Charles S. Peirce Society
"The Structure of C. S. Peirce's Neglected Argument for the Reality of God: A Critical Assessment"
J. Caleb Clanton (pp. 175-200)
The aim of this essay is to clarify the basic structure of Peirce's three-part argument and to show how it falls prey to several objections.
"Regulating 'Nigger': Racial Offense, African American Activists, and the MPPDA, 1928-1961"
Ellen Scott (pp. 1-31)
The MPPDA's shifting policy on antiblack epithets was driven less by respectful consideration of Black spectators than by concern about state censors and the specter of Black revolt. It tells us much about how industry self-censors sought to mask American race relations through encoded textual signification.
"Robben Island University"
Aaron Bady (pp. 106-119)
Mandela was “the world's most famous (former) prisoner,” and Aaron Bady explores how prison served as a necessary prerequisite for political leadership in much of post-colonial Africa, then asks us to consider in what ways Mandela may still be imprisoned.
