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

Greetings:

I'm looking for 1-2 more individuals who are interested in presenting a paper at the upcoming 2019 SHAFR conference on a topic related to citizen's tribunals, truth commissions, truth and reconciliation, and/or transitional justice during the 20th century.

If interested, please send an email to Cody Foster at codyfoster@uky.edu as soon as possible (the proposal deadline is December 1). 

Thanks!
