I'm organizing a panel for the upcoming annual meeting of the Society for the History of American Foreign Relations, held in Alexandria, VA in June 2011. The following is a description of the panel I'm organizing:
Panel Title: “Traffic: The Movement of Illicit Natural Resources Across Borders.”
Panel Description: This panel explores the creation of international regulatory regimes and the individuals and institutions that sought to move illegal natural resource commodities across borders during the twentieth century. It focuses on the diverse manifestations of “trafficking” and the contested authorities that sought to regulate and crack down on the movement of such illicit products. In doing so, this panel seeks to explain the multiple origins of the understandings of “traffic” in a variety of natural resources, and how and where authority was created to manage such transnational movements.
My paper will focus on American sportsmen and illicit overseas hunting during the early twentieth century. Any geographic specialty is open. Please email me a one paragraph paper proposal no later than Nov. 10. Thank you.
