Chair: Joshua Rothman
Panelists: Stephen Kantrowitz, Chandra Manning, Kate Masur, Manisha Sinha, and Kidada E. Williams

This panel brings together leading scholars to consider these new historiographies, their significance for understanding the history of the nineteenth century, and their lessons for our contemporary politics.
