Seeking a panel at 2021 AHA (Seattle) Conference

Hi all,

I am looking to join a panel at the AHA conference in Seattle, WA in January 2021. My research is, broadly, in the area of the intersection of domestic politics and U.S. foreign relations, focusing primarily on the Pacific Northwest states in the post-WWII era. I've just finished a book manuscript on this topic, and the paper I want to present at the AHA will focus on Oregon U.S. Representative Edith Green (1955-74) and the ways in which her nominally domestic work on education and labor issues contained international, transnational Cold War elements.
