Call for papers on health care in the South for a proposed panel at the 2013 Southern Historical Association Conference in St. Louis, Missouri (October 3- November 3, 2013). My specific paper is on the desegregation of the Jackson VA hospital during the 1950s and how white southern veterans reacted to this desegregation. The deadline for the panel proposal is September 15, 2012. Please, email me at firstname.lastname@example.org, if you are interested. Below is information on the conference:

The Program Committee for 2013, chaired by Cynthia Kierner, George Mason University, invites proposals on all topics related to the history of the American South from its pre-colonial era to today.
The Program Committee accepts proposals for single papers but encourages session proposals that include two or three papers. Individuals interested in using the SHA website to organize a session with complementary papers may send an e-mail to Sheree Dendy with their name, e-mail address, and proposed paper topic. She will post this information on the SHA website, which others seeking compatible co-panelists may consult. Click to view current postings of those seeking related proposals.
According to SHA policy, no one who appeared on the previous two programs, those at Baltimore and Mobile, can be part of the program in St. Louis.
All proposals for the 2013 program must be submitted online. Click "back" to access proposal forms.
The deadline for proposals is September 15, 2012.
