  1. Review of Emily Sun's Succeeding King Lear: Literature, Exposure, and the Possibility of Politics [Download]

    Title: Review of Emily Sun's Succeeding King Lear: Literature, Exposure, and the Possibility of Politics
    Author: Joubin, Alexa Alice
    Description: English Romantic reception of King Lear is an important part of Shakespeare's afterlife. This book investigates Anglo-American post-Romanticist readings and appropriations of Lear as a seminal text on the relationship between literature and politics, specifically succession as a philosophical and political issue in British Romanticism and American modernism. The book suggests that King Lear helps William Wordsworth, journalist James Agee, and photographer Walker Evans articulate their anxieties about literary representation and political successions.

  2. Rethinking Empowerment: Evidence from Local Empowerment Zone Programs [Download]

    Title: Rethinking Empowerment: Evidence from Local Empowerment Zone Programs
    Author: Rich, Michael
    Description: The legacy of the federal government's Empowerment Zone initiative is contested. The evidence undergirding the initiative's legacy, however, is based primarily on models that estimate national effects. We use an alternative evaluation strategy that places greater emphasis on local Empowerment Zones as distinct programs. Our findings show that several cities did produce improvements that likely can be attributed to the EZ initiative. The results, however, are not consistent across outcomes or cities. Our findings suggest that what happens locally is a vital concern for federal urban policy and also informative for local communities with responsibility for crafting and executing revitalization strategies.
