Hello H-CivWar readers,
Good morning! Brianna Kirk (University of Virginia) and Molly Mersmann (Purdue University) are interested in putting together a panel for the 2020 American Historical Association.
The Panel "New Approaches to the Long Tradition of US-Brazil Comparative Histories," sponsored by the Latin American and Caribbean Section at the Southern Historian Association, was a reminder of how important a transnational lens is to the study of the nineteenth century. The conversations about abolition, frontier expansion, and the movement of people were never confined to the limitations of a nation state.
