I'd like to propose a panel on American engagement with Africa in the 19th century to the OAH, which meets in Philadelphia in early April, 2019.

I am seeking a chair for a panel on Early American foreign relations for SHAFR (Society for Historians of American Foreign Relations) in Philadelphia from June 21-23, 2018 (NOT SHEAR, which is in Cleveland in July). The title of the proposed panel is "The Caribbean as a site of self-imagining in Early U.S. Foreign Relations."
SHAFR understands "foreign relations" broadly, so anybody who does Atlantic World would fit that description. We currently have 3 panelists and a commentator, but no chair, and the chronological scope is roughly 1798-1830.
