I am seeking a replacement panelist for an accepted session (Saturday, May 19, 2018: 3:00-4:30PM) at the Southern Labor Studies Association Meeting in Athens, GA.
I am especially interested in papers examining regimes of labor and control in the Lower Mississippi Valley during the colonial, antebellum, Civil War, or Reconstruction periods.
Here is the original panel description, subject to change based on the submissions to this post:
Throughout the nation’s history Americans have loved to be on the move, embracing a pioneering spirit that is embedded deep within the country’s democratic ideals of opportunity and expansion, of dreams and reinvention. With the widespread availability of cars and the establishment of a vast highway system by the mid-20th century, many Americans had more opportunities than ever before to explore their nation and to reinvent themselves, taking untraveled roads to seek out their own American dreams.
