Calling for papers to be on a panel at the 2018 annual conference by the Society for U.S. Intellectual History at the Warwick-Allerton Hotel in Chicago from November 8-11. This year's theme is "Anti-Intellectual Sensibilities," and the panel I am seeking to form is tentatively titled "100 Years Since the Bolshevik Revolution: Reflecting on Communism in the "Post-Truth" Era." I am looking for 4 papers from graduate students in any discipline that concentrate on the conference's theme of "anti-intellectual sensibilities" and also focuses on some aspect of U.S. History and Communism. Please send a brief CV and a 500-word abstract to Nathan Moore.
Deadline to email papers is March 20, 2018.
