Call for Papers
2017 edition of the West Tennessee Historical Society Papers
I am organizing a panel for the 2018 SAWH Conference next summer, June 7-10, 2018, at the University of Alabama in Tuscaloosa. The panel will address Appalachian history and is tentatively titled: “No Longer Isolated: New Directions in Appalachian Women’s History.” My paper will explore regional identity in Appalachia in the mid-nineteenth century through a comparison of marriage patterns in two rural and urban West Virginia communities. I would welcome papers on a broad range of topics in Appalachian history for the rest of the panel.
