I am looking to organize a panel for the Organization of American Historians conference in Chicago April 15-18, 2021. In keeping with the conference theme of "Pathways to Democracy," this panel will seek to explore the historical relationship between migrants, citizenship, and democracy in American history. My own paper for this panel will discuss migrants' conceptions and deployment of revolutionary and democratic citizenship during the period of eighteenth-century Atlantic revolutions. If you are interested in participating, please email me directly at okeefe at ohio dot edu with a 100-200 word abstract.
