CFP: Seeking SHEAR 2018 panelists

Hello H-Shear,    

I’m trying to assemble a panel to submit to the 2018 SHEAR conference. My paper will be on Virginia politics and print culture in the 1820s. A panel description might be “print culture and ideology in the south, 1790-1860,” potentially including political ideology, religious belief, gender norms, and racial ideology.  Another option might be to compare print culture in the construction of ideology in the north and the south, 1790-1860. 

If you might be interested in joining me, please contact me. 

Sincerely,

Sydney M

CALL FOR PAPERS Special issue of The Journal of Hate Studies: Hate and Heritage

In the spring of 2015, actor Ben Affleck appeared on PBS’s Finding Your Roots, hosted by Henry Louis Gates. In preparation for the show, which traces the genealogies of famous Americans, Affleck requested that information about his family’s ownership of black slaves be omitted from the broadcast, though details about Affleck’s more noble ancestors, including his mother, who was a Freedom Rider, were highlighted. When the omission was publically revealed, Affleck admitted that he was “embarrassed” by ancestors who owned slaves.
