Hello! I am a Senior Lecturer at Wayne State University who is looking for researchers interested in proposing a panel for the 2019 meeting of the Organization of American Historians. I am planning on presenting from a recent article, which looks at how teenage responses to crossover records on the Billboard charts between 1953 and 1958 reflected shifting views of integration movements. Since the conference theme is "The Work of Freedom," I am thinking that any research that looks at social movements and popular culture might be a good fit.
