Call for Panelist- Abuse of Governmental Power (Conference on Policy History, June 2016)

My name is Michael Koncewicz and I'm a recent PhD from UC Irvine who now works at the Tamiment Library and NYU's Center for the United States and the Cold War. My research deals with the moderate Republicans who said no to President Nixon's unethical orders. I'm interested in putting together a panel that will focus on the larger theme of abuse of governmental power for the Conference on Policy History in June 2016 (Nashville). However, I'm fairly flexible when it comes to adjusting the theme of the panel to incorporate a range of papers.
