Seeking Panelists for SHA 2023

Nathan Smith's picture


I am a 5th year PhD Candidate at Mississippi State University working on 20th century labor in the Sunbelt South. I am seeking other scholars for a panel focused on 20th century southern labor, unionization, recreation/theme parks, and/or political realignment. 

My paper will examine narratives of labor at the Walt Disney parks and contrast them with the work done by cast members and explore thier unionization efforts. 

If you are interested in being a part of this panel, or are creating a similar panel, please contact me via email

Thank you,

Nathan Smith
