Call for Panelists/SHCY 2021 - education and resistance

Hello all,

My name is Rachael A. Beyer and I'm a PhD candidate at the University of Delaware, writing my dissertation on the Future Farmers of America and the influential role of its students on U.S. farm policy. I am hoping to present a paper on Japanese American students who, upon imprisonment in WW2 internment camps, formed FFA chapters despite directives from the national office that they could not do so. I am hoping to form or join a panel related to education, resistance, and agency and can be reached at rachaelb@udel.edu
