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.

Campaign History and the Current Race
New article from Origins: Current Events in Historical Perspective - "Madame President: A History of the Women Who Ran before Hillary," by Kimberly A. Hamlin
Hillary Clinton will be the first woman nominated by a major political party to run for president of the United States, but she is certainly not the first woman to seek the office. In this article, historian Kimberly Hamlin profiles women who have tried to win the Presidency—an office that thus far has been a club for men only.
The James K. Polk Project, at the University of Tennessee, Knoxville, is pleased to announce that all twelve published volumes of the "Correspondence of James K. Polk" are now available online.
