Call for Added papers - AHAs 2024

I am planning to attend the AHAs next January and would really love to join a panel. Those of you who are familiar with my work know that I work with colonial Nahuatl religious texts. I recently finished a critical English translation of Sahagún's collection of Nahuatl sermons while on an NEH fellowship and would like to present a paper – but I have no panel as of yet. Please let me know if you or anyone you know is looking for another presenter!
