Seeking Panelists for SHAFR 2020

Hello all!

I'm interested in putting together a panel for SHAFR 2020 roughly about/around the theme (still working it out) of slavery/race/Atlantic history and US foreign relations (broadly defined).  My own paper will be about Negro education in Africa in the late 19th/early 20th centuries.  Email me if you might be interested in contributing: kburlingham@fullerton.edu

Best,

Kate Burlingham
