My name is Isabela Morales, and I am a historian of slavery and emancipation with a PhD in history from Princeton University. I am currently the Editor and Project Manager of the Princeton & Slavery Project.

I am planning on attending the SHA 2022 annual meeting, which will be helding in Baltimore, MD from November 10-13, 2022. The conference theme is "Southern History Now! Upheavals, Reckonings, and Reimaginings."

I would like to propose a full panel centered around an overarching theme of "Challenging 19th-century Racial Hierarchies."

This theme could lend itself well to papers set in the antebellum period, Civil War, or Reconstruction eras; papers that examine slave resistance and antislavery movements; Native American history in the South; and other topics. My paper would focus on an enslaved family -- the children of a white Alabama cotton planter -- who were freed and inherited their father's fortune when he died in 1856.

Graduate students, early career scholars, and independent historians are especially welcome! The dealine to submit proposals is September 15, 2021, so please contact me before this date if you are interested in forming a panel.
