CfP: "Crowd Control," SHOT 2021 (Abstracts 4/7)

Dear H-SPORTSters,

I'm proposing an open session called "Crowd Control" for the 2021 meeting of SHOT, the Society for the History of Technology, which will be held November 18-21 in New Orleans.  I think it may be of interest to sport historians who work on the infrastructures of staging sport events.  I hope you'll submit an abstract.  Queries and abstracts (by 7 April) to scottkushner@uri.edu.  See below or visit https://tinyurl.com/CrowdControlSHOT2021.
