Abstract:Wide Open Spaces: Place, Empire, and U.S.-Indigenous Relations, 1816-1907 investigates the changing borders of the U.S. settler nation-state and Native nations throughout the nineteenth century. The project looks at three key sites, Florida, Cuba, and Oklahoma, to unpack how statehood debates challenged the U.S. to determine who and what to include within its borders. Print culture narrated these moments of particular geopolitical and cultural flux and operated (often on both sides of the colonial divide) to establish a narrative cartography of place.
