I am seeking panel mates to present on the subject of philanthropy and corruption in nineteenth century America at the 2012 Urban History Association Conference. The conference will be held October 26-28 2012. For more information on the conference, please visit http://uha.udayton.edu/conf.html
My paper explores how the vacuum created by massive immigration enabled organizations who provided social services to both intentionally and unintentionally garner social and political capital as consequence of their service.
Ideal papers to serve on this panel would examine issues such as urban neediness and charity, political corruption in cities or exploitation of immigrants by patrician classes in a nineteenth century urban environment.
Would any interested presenters please contact me no later than March 1st 2012.
