Over the last couples of weeks, I’ve written about why I think we should get rid of paper panels, how to create a great round table, and how to find panel participants. SHEAR recently posted their Call for Papers, the Omohundro Institute will do so in September, and the OAH and AHA shouldn’t be far behind for the 2021 season.
