CfP: Panelist in search of panel for 2017 AHA

Dear H-Diplo Colleagues:

I am seeking to join a panel for the 2017 AHA conference that deals with recent American political history. My own research examines the life and career of H.R. Haldeman. My research addresses a number of issues regarding American political history after 1945 including, but not limited to, the history of political campaigns, advertising, private business’ interactions with politics, political advisers, and the history of the Nixon administration/era.
