NWSA Panel

Hi Everyone. I'm hoping to submit a panel to the November 2019 NWSA conference in San Francisco. The conference is themed, with sub-themes. The theme is "Protest, Justice, and Transnational Organizing," and the sub-theme I'm considering is "Politics of the State." My paper would be about Sonia Johnson's 1984 presidential candidacy.  Any takers for a more thorough discussion off list at crimson underscore 1995 at hotmail dot com.
