The Huntington-USC Institute on California and the West (ICW) seeks applications from recent PhDs for a two-year postdoctoral fellowship in aerospace history, beginning in the fall of 2018. The Institute on California and the West is a research and teaching collaboration between the Huntington Library and the University of Southern California.
An article of interest to California historians may be found in the current issue of Southern California Quarterly [Warren Wood, "Fraud and the California State Census of 1852: Power and Demographic Distortion in Gold Rush California," Southern California Quarterly, Vol. 100, No. 1, pp. 5–43].

"The California State Archives has completed one of its largest digitization projects ever. The collection features nearly 3,000 photographs taken by native Californians William M. and Grace McCarthy from approximately 1905 to 1938. The McCarthys traveled extensively during the early years of automobile travel, as newly constructed highways connected people and places throughout the United States and beyond, providing pictorial documentation of a pivotal period in our nation’s history."
I would like to join or put up a panel for the Western History Association conference in San Antonio in Oct. 2018 (general theme : re-imagining Race and Ethnicity in the West).
I am working on two very different projects that I could present if scholars of the network would be interested in co-organizing a panel (I am located over seas).
