CfP: Panelist Replacement Needed for RMCLAS 2019 - Cold War in Central America

Due to unforeseen circumstances, one of our panelists unfortunately can no longer attend the RMCLAS meeting in Santa Fe this April. The title of the panel is "New Approaches to the Cold War in Central America." Any papers dealing with revolutions, counterrevolutions, civil wars, transnational networks, social movements, foreign intervention, diplomacy, and/or out-migration during the Cold War period in Central America would fit in perfectly, as would virtually any topic dealing with late twentieth century Central America.
