Looking for panel or panelists on law, religion, crime, education

Hi,

I am hoping to organize a panel or find a panel being organized for the ASLH annual meeting for 2017. Which means a deadline of March 15th. 

I would like to offer a paper looking at how 19th-Century advocates of public schools identified the elimination of crime through religious education as a one of their selling points for tax funding for schools, and how that argument evolved over time. I can see this paper fitting in with papers on topics on the history of church-state doctrine, on criminal law and criminal offenders, education and the state, etc.

CfP for the Panel: Europe and the European Union: Politicizing Europeanness, Porto, Portugal, 28 – 29 April 2017
