Seeking presenters for a panel which will examine the role geography played in the lives of African Americans during the Civil War at the 2013 OAH conference in San Francisco.
My own presentation will focus on the lives of free African Americans in the Confederate states of Louisiana and Virginia. I plan to discuss how geography defined their existence and, in keeping with the theme of the conference, led to certain constraints. Proposal topics could include regional studies about the experiences of free, as well as enslaved, African Americans during the war. Proposal topics should not be limited to the Civi War South. In your proposals, please specify how geography shaped the experiences of African Americans.
Please send a 250-word proposal and a short CV of no more than 500 words to Lynette Garrett at firstname.lastname@example.org no later than February 6, 2012.
