Panel on Plantation Afterlives for 2021 SHA

Together with Martyn Bone, associate professor of English at the University of Copenhagen, and Tjalling Valdés Olmos, a PhD student in Cultural Studies at the University of Amsterdam, I am trying to put together a panel on plantation afterlives for the 2021 Southern Historical Association Conference in New Orleans. I currently work as assistant professor in American Studies and History at the University of Groningen, the Netherlands. We already drafted the following panel proposal: "Plantation legacies continue to haunt societies around the globe until this day.

Panelist for SHA 2021

I am looking for a panelist to join me, an assistant professor at the University of Houston-Victoria, and Laura June Davis, an assistant professor at Southern Utah University, on a panel exploring the uses and misuses of American Civil War Memory for the 2021 Southern Historical Association Conference in New Orleans, LA. We are particularly interested in a scholar who will add racial and ethnic diversity to the panelists.
