OAH 2019 or SHEAR 2018 panel participants

I am seeking to create a paper panel for OAH 2019 (or SHEAR 2018) that examines topics in Early America, either late colonial or early republic.  My work explores the shift of historic narratives through the long 18th century, from colonial times to the early republic, and engages themes of identity, nostalgia, memory, and nationalism, among others. This is a topic that can be accessed and applied widely.

Feel free to contact me directly at reason@purdue.edu

I look forward to hearing from you!

Best wishes,

Amanda Rumba

SHEAR 2018: panel on the history of celebrity

Jane Calvert (University of Kentucky) and I are putting together a panel on the history of celebrity in the early American republic and would welcome ideas for more panelists. Whereas once scholars insisted that the phenomenon of celebrity could only appear by the twentieth century, a wide range of new works -- particularly in British history and literature -- have demonstrated a far earlier emergence. SHEAR hasn't featured a panel on the topic in many years; please join us!

Forming a Panel for 2018 SHEAR Annual Meeting

I'd like to put together a panel for the 2018 SHEAR conference (proposals are due December 1).  My work is concerned with presidential politics and the territorial system.  Currently I am working on a comparative history of Kansas, Utah, and Washington territories in the 1850s.  I can envision a panel on any of a number of topics depending on interest.  If your work corresponds with my own and you are interested in presenting a paper (or chairing or commenting), please contact me at pponce@ithaca.edu.  Thanks!
