Sent: Wednesday, October 30, 2013 Subject: Query: CFP 2014 Indiana Association of Historians Conference Panel [Editor's Note: The IAH conference will be held at Anderson University's Flagship Center on March 8, 2014.] I am currently searching for a third presenter and a commentator & chair to complete a panel on race, memory, and Civil War veterans’ organizations and their auxiliaries for the 2014 Indiana Association of Historians conference. In keeping with the conference’s theme of “conflict and transformation”, the panel will broadly examine the role of race in influencing conflicting and transforming Unionist and Confederate memories of the conflict advocated by veteran and like-minded groups during the late nineteenth and twentieth century. The presenter’s paper can have a focus on Indiana, the Midwest, or nation generally. My paper will scrutinize the role of race within the Woman's Relief Corps and how it influenced the group's promotion of a Unionist memory of the war. The second paper will address the issue of race, reconciliation, and the Indiana Department of the Grand Army of the Republic. Individuals interested in presenting a paper on the panel or acting as a commentator & chair should email me directly at firstname.lastname@example.org by Friday, November 15. The deadline for submissions is Friday, December 13. Thank you, John C. Kennedy PhD Candidate Department of History Purdue University [ --
