Forming a Panel for 2018 SHEAR Annual Meeting

I'd like to put together a panel for the 2018 SHEAR conference (proposals are due December 1).  My work is concerned with presidential politics and the territorial system.  Currently I am working on a comparative history of Kansas, Utah, and Washington territories in the 1850s.  I can envision a panel on any of a number of topics depending on interest.  If your work corresponds with my own and you are interested in presenting a paper (or chairing or commenting), please contact me at pponce@ithaca.edu.  Thanks!
