First panel of the #2018SHA (it's what's being used by the @JourSouHist) is the Hanger Memorial Panel on Belief, Belonging, and Blasphemy in the Haitian Revolution Era, featuring @JuliaGaffield, @DrEricaJohnson, Chaz Yingling, and Maria Cecilia Ulrickson #SHA2018
Matt Childs opens up by acknowledging the work of Dr. Kimberly Hanger, a past president of the Latin American and Caribbean Section and distinguished scholar of Spanish New Orleans / Louisiana. #2018SHA
I'm very excited for this panel, as some of these scholars I've known since our (very) early grad school days. #2018SHA

#2018SHA #Policing the New South πŸ”₯πŸ”₯πŸ”₯
@HerecomesDrBob @ProfEFP @SouthernLaborSA
#2918SHA O'Hara: policing is done by a variety of different agents. Wood: SC Gov. Cole Blease (rabid racist & passionate defender if lynching), but also used pardon powers liberally; wrote about penal reform = Southern exceptionalism?
#2018SHA Wood: reinforced the racial hierarchy of Jim Crow = what @Lankwa calls the paradox of Southern #Progressivism. Blease directly appealed to poor whites, engendering racism. But also ended convict leasing.
