I seek to organize a panel for the 107th Annual Meeting and Conference of the Association for the Study of African American Life and History (ASALH). The conference theme is "Black Health and Wellness" and the panel title is "Progressive Era Medical Advice Literature." My paper will treat an 1898 advice manual, Hints on the Care of Children, authored by Lucy E. Hubert, wife of African Methodist Episcopal minister, the Rev. Ellwood G. Hubert. Accompanying papers might cover additional Black-authored books or periodical literature treating the topics of health and wellness published from roughly 1880 to 1930. Please send 150-word paper proposal and a one-page research CV to Dr. Cynthia Patterson at by Friday, March 4, 2022. "Early Bird" panel submissions due to ASALH conference organizers March 18, 2022.
