I am organizing a panel proposal on the fate of liberal Republicanism for the 2012 OAH conference, and I seek participants. The panel aims to assess and explain the rise and fall of liberal Republicanism. One paper will examine the role that cultural politics played in both fueling and subverting the liberal Republican movement during the 1920s. The second paper assesses liberal Republicans who embraced the New Deal's regulatory agenda but fought to blunt its social democratic impulses during the latter 1930s. A third panelist presenting material exploring the decline of liberal Republicans during the mid-twentieth century would be ideal, but all inquiries will be considered. Those interested should contact Charles Delgadillo at firstname.lastname@example.org by January 30, 2011 and be capable of producing a prospectus of no more than 250 words for their paper and a vita of no more than 500 words before the final submission deadline of February 1.
