I’m trying to assemble a panel to submit to the 2018 SHEAR conference. My paper will be on Virginia politics and print culture in the 1820s. A panel description might be “print culture and ideology in the south, 1790-1860,” potentially including political ideology, religious belief, gender norms, and racial ideology. Another option might be to compare print culture in the construction of ideology in the north and the south, 1790-1860.
If you might be interested in joining me, please contact me.
