I am trying to put together a panel for next year's SHEAR conference on the history of the 3/5ths Clause, from its incorporation into the Constitution through the end of slavery in the Civil War. Scholars who are interested in presenting papers on the history of the 3/5ths Clause, covering any time period between 1787 and 1865, are encouraged to reach out to me at ncgreen@nvcc.edu. If possible, please send a 1-page CV and a brief abstract (no more than 100 words) of your paper.

Please reach out to me by Nov. 15 at the very latest, so I can put the panel together by the Dec. 1 deadline.

Expressions of interest prior to Nov. 15 are also welcome, even if you do not have a paper abstract yet, but you should be able to provide a 100-word abstract by Nov. 15.
