Mime-Version: 1.0 I would like to pull together a panel for next year’s American Historical Association annual meeting.The theme is “Lives, Places, Stories.” http://www.historians.org/perspectives/issues/2011/1109/1109ann4.cfm I am seeking papers that examine the stories Americans told to make sense of the changing world around them in the mid 18th and early 19th centuries. In my own paper, I propose to examine the ways Americans made sense of mental illness in period of transition from colony to nation. The medical literature proposed that good government and civilization created the conditions that would lead to insanity. If this were true, what were Americans to do? If you have a paper or topic you believe would fit in with this, please contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org <mailto:email@example.com>. The deadline for proposals in February 15 so we need to act fast.
