SHAFR Panelist Wanted: Travel and Tourism

SHAFR Panelist Needed:

I looking for one paper to join a SHAFR panel. The two papers we have deal with broad travel/tourism issues in the pre-WWII period, and both focus on the U.S. and Mexico. I would welcome papers about travel and tourism (broadly defined) that deal with any country. A paper on U.S.-Mexican relations, especially if it explores cross border cultural perceptions, would also fit.

Please email me at taffetj@usmma.edu if you are interested.
