Panelist Solicitations: The Western History Association 2010, and the Mormon History Association 2010

By August 19, 2009

I’m looking to fill a few panels for some conferences in 2010.

1) I’m looking for a panelist for the 2010 Western History Association Conference (See the Call For Papers here). I am proposing a paper on native Mexicans (Mormons and not) in the Mormon Colonies of Chihuahua, Mexico in the 19th century. A second panelist is proposing a paper on Pancho Villa and the Mormon Colonies.  A third panelist would ideally deal with some aspect of Mormonism in the US-Mexico borderlands, the Mormon Colonies, or Mormons and some other western context (the theme of the Conference is “Many Wests” which invites studies of international and non-traditional “wests”).  This request is time critical as proposals are due September 1.

2) I would like to put together a panel on Mormonism in Latin America for the 2010 Mormon History Association Conference (see CFP here). Proposals are due October 1.

Let me know if you’d be interested and please feel free to pass this word along to anyone you know who might be interested in participating.
