SHEAR 2023 Panel: Alcohol and drug use and/or slavery and slaveholders

Kelly Gray's picture

I am assembling a panel for SHEAR 2023 that will focus on alcohol and drug use in the Early Republic, or on slavery and slaveholders, or on some combination of the two topics. My paper will focus on the consequences of slaveholders’ heavy drinking on the people who they enslaved.

If you are interested in participating on the panel, please email me ( I plan to assemble a diverse panel.
