Seeking SHEAR 2015 Panel

Dear SHEAR members,

I would like to organize a SHEAR 2015 Annual Meeting panel (or, alternatively, to join a current panel) that explores New England reactionaries in the early American Republic, broadly conceived. My paper makes use of Massachusetts statesman Francis Baylies's correspondence to General John E. Wool between 1848 and 1852. Using Baylies's letters of correspondence to Wool during Wool's stint in the Mexican-American War, my research will examine how Baylies challenged New England traditions of political and intellectual progressivism and radicalism.
