Seeking labor scholars of the American South to join a panel for the 2020 AHA.

Current papers include William Horne's exploration of caracerality, contractual labor, and land ownership in later 19th century Louisiana, and Lauren Angel's examination of gendered War on Poverty rhetoric tying white preservation to the Appalachian mountains.
