SMH 2019: Panel on World War II

Regards to everyone,

We are currently looking for a third panelist or additional panelists interested in presenting on aspects of World War II. I will be presenting a paper on the experiences of Italian-American servicemen serving in Italy and their relationship with Italians there, while another Ohio State peer (Carson Teuscher) will be focusing on the experiences of the Brazilian servicemen of the Brazilian Expeditionary Force in Italy. We also have a chair and a commentator for the panel, but need a third panelist to be able to submit a complete panel proposal.
