Have we always been international? The essays in this issue of Common-place suggest that the answer is yes. Kevin D. Murphy uncovers the global networks that shaped folk art created on a remote Maine island while Brian Rouleau follows nineteenth-century mariners (and their blackface performances) to Japan. Matthew Karp alerts us to the global ambitions of slaveholding politicians on the eve of the Civil War. And Christopher Hodson offers a witty, personal account of one historianís international turn.
