Seeking Panelists for Southern Historical Association 2019

I am a doctoral candidate seeking panel participants for the 2019 SHA meeting. My research examines white women in South Carolina and their evolving political consciousness before and during the state's secession in December 1860. I argue that women's views are uniquely shaped by their gender and religious beliefs. I am flexible in creating a panel theme--it could be gender and the Civil War Era, emotions and politics, women and the politics of white supremacy, etc.

I am currently asking a professor to chair but if you have a professor who would be interested do ask them as well!
