Hi, I am looking for a panelist to add to a proposed panel dealing broadly with Modern Imperialism in Southeast Asia for the AAS (Asian Studies Association) Conference which will be held in Denver on March 21-24, 2019. This is a bit last minute as the final proposals are due the afternoon of August 1st. The other panelists are doing topics dealing with knowledge production, national identity, material culture, and health. If you think your paper would fit, please email me.
