WAWH Conference Panel CFP

Hi all-

I'm interested in putting together a panel for the Western Association of Women's Historians in Denver this year on Mormon History.  My project would focus on a comparative analysis of the ways slavery and Mormon polygamy were considered threats to the family in the mid-19th century.  We could put the panel together in any way we wanted, really.  The conference is May 12-14, and conference proposals are due September 18.  A link to the CFP is here:
