I am organizing a panel for the 2020 annual meeting of the American Historical Association which brings together scholars who are interested in presenting new research about women and slavery in the Atlantic world.

We are seeking contributors for a panel on "Marital Economies in Early America" at the AHA 2020 in NYC. The exact description will be determined by the final composition of the panel.
I am looking for a third presenter for a panel on U.S. women who brought down powerful men in the nineteenth and twentieth centuries. The first paper will address the New York Female Benevolent Society's lawsuit against a fellow moral reformer in the 1830s. The second paper will be on the first all-female city government in Kansas in the early 1900s.
