Seeking co-panelists at SHAFR conference 2019

Hello, I am interested in forming or joining a panel on Franco-American relations or on the Spanish-American-Filipino War of 1898-1904. My interest is in French Algeria's role in Franco-American relations and in American territorial expansion. I wish to give a paper on how American jurists and diplomats drew on French Algeria in determining how to treat U.S. territories gained from Spain in 1898. Please reply to tm-roberts@wiu.edu .

Many thanks.
