OAH 2019 or SHEAR 2018 panel participants

I am seeking to create a paper panel for OAH 2019 (or SHEAR 2018) that examines topics in Early America, either late colonial or early republic.  My work explores the shift of historic narratives through the long 18th century, from colonial times to the early republic, and engages themes of identity, nostalgia, memory, and nationalism, among others. This is a topic that can be accessed and applied widely.

Feel free to contact me directly at reason@purdue.edu

I look forward to hearing from you!

Best wishes,

Amanda Rumba

CFP: Monument Culture: International Perspectives on the Future of Monuments in a Changing World

In 2017, a year of difficult and often appalling events both on the national and international stage, monument culture unexpectedly became the centerpiece of discussion, protest, activism, and vandalism. Scholars and preservationists witnessed monument culture move from the margins to the center of society, both in the United States and in many other countries around the world.
