I am seeking to form a panel for the 2005 SHAFR Conference. My own paper deals with President Carter's decision to boycott the 1980 Moscow Summer Olympics. The paper examines Carter's personal stake in the decision to boycott as well as the rationale for adding an Olympic boycott to the long list of sanctions Carter pursued in response to the Soviet invasion of Afghanistan. Depending on the response to this query, the panel could focus on the general themes of Carter's foreign policy or the role of sports in Cold War diplomacy. If you are interested please respond to Krister Swanson at email@example.com. Thanks for your consideration- Krister Swanson PhD Student in United States History University of California at Santa Barbara
