Seeking panelist(s) for a panel on transnational scientific and or medical exchange, broadly conceived, with the Greater Caribbean from the mid-18th to the mid-19th century. At present we have two panelists working on medical exchange between New Orleans, Europe and the region and a commenter. While we are open to any and all scholars within that framework, we especially welcome up and coming as well as international scholars as we are trying to expand our cohort. Interested parties should contact me directly at warden@ucsb.edu .
