We are two graduate students in history seeking a third to round out a panel for OAH 2012 on interracial encounter in urban contexts. One of our projects takes a fresh look at African American expressive culture in a handful of city spaces during the antebellum period, and the other examines the political culture of AIDS in relation to race from the mid-1980s to the end of the century. We have a common interest in the intersections of the histories of the raced body and the city as sites in which a variety of actors construct and contest meanings of citizenship and identity. Ideally, we would like to find a faculty member working on a similar project in a historical period not covered by either of our projects, but we will consider other participants and topics as well. Please send a brief self-introduction and description of the paper you would be presenting. We look forward to hearing from you!
