SHAFR Panelist seeking

I am seeking to join a panel for SHAFR 2019. I am working on a project about POW/MIAs of the Korean War, and my paper is on the U.S.-North Korea talks over the recovery of American soldiers' remains from North Korea in the late1980s and early 1990s.  I could shift my chronological scope a little bit (in both directions).

Here is my email zhaokun1@andrew.cmu.edu

SHAFR 2019 Panel: Migration in the Americas

I am a doctoral candidate at UC Berkeley organizing a panel that deals with migration in the Americas in the latter half of the twentieth century, for SHAFR's 2019 annual meeting. Papers dealing with exile, refugee stories, asylum policy, and/or the intersection between US foreign policy (including the Cold War and drug wars) and migration are especially welcome. If you're interested in participating or have questions, please contact me at culpepper@berkeley.edu.
