CFP: NACBS 2018 Panel on Scottish culture during the Restoration Era

I am trying to assemble a panel that examines various aspects of Scottish culture during the Restoration Era, 1660-1688/9. My work examines Clan MacKenzie from c. 1651-1707. Would anyone be interested in helping form a panel?

Many thanks,

Edwin Sheffield, History PhD Candidate at The University of Glasgow

CFP: NACBS Panel on the military and state formation

Greetings Everyone,

I am assembling a panel proposal examining the impact of the military (broadly defined as armed state agencies including the army, navy, and militia) upon state formation in the British Empire for this October's NACBS. Thus far, the panel has two participants: myself and Sarah Kinkel of Ohio University. My work examines the impact of the British military justice system on state formation, while Sarah's explores the Navy and state formation, both during the eighteenth century. Would anyone be interested in joining us?

A range of time periods as well as disciplines are welcomed.
