CFP: Climate Change and Policy

Last month, I issued a CFP (see original below) for a special issue of the Marine Corps University Journal, focusing on climate change and policy.

Panel Search: Policy History Conference Panel on Bilingualism and Urban Politics

I am looking to put together a panel on bilingualism and urban politics in American history for the 2016 Policy History Conference.  My own work focuses on the Cuban community in Miami and I plan to present on the politics surrounding the 1973 bilingual ordinance in Dade County.  I would like to gather two or three papers on bilingualism in the United States.  Ideally this panel would seek to go beyond just English-Spanish bilingualism, but I am open to alter the panel as needed.
