Seeking panelist for SHEAR on the topic of advertising

Jennifer Black at Misercordia University (PA) and I are putting together a panel on the topic of advertising for SHEAR. We are seeking one or two more panelists. We have comments and a chair already lined up. Jen's paper deals with authenticity and anxiety in antebellum advertising, and mine looks at the use of nature. Any period within SHEAR's range is fine.

The deadline is approaching fast, so please do get in touch as soon as possible.
