H-Louisiana is sponsored by the Louisiana Historical Association. The purpose of the network is to facilitate communication and the exchange of scholarly and pedagogical ideas and digital projects among researchers, teachers, scholars, advanced students, and related professionals (e.g. local historians, librarians, archivists, genealogists) interested in Louisiana history as well as those who work in Louisiana.
Louisiana supplies 30% of America’s oil and gas, extracted largely from the state's coastal freshwater marshes, which are also the home to the region’s unique Cajun culture and the source for 30% of the nation’s seafood.
I seek one or two other presenters to compose a panel for the Louisiana Historical Association meeting in Baton Rouge, March 17-19, 2016. The topic of the panel is the domestic slave trade to New Orleans and the Lower Mississippi Valley. My paper concerns the domestic slave trade and the law. Anyone interested in presenting with me is invited to contact me at email@example.com. Submission deadline for the panel proposal is September 1, 2015.
