Call For Panelist/Commentator: Regulation across Borders (Conference on Policy History, June 2016)

Colleagues, We are looking for a third presenter and a commentator to round out our panel proposal for next year’s Conference on Policy History. The panel will focus on various aspects of regulatory diffusion across political borders. One paper looks at Cecil B. DeMille’s role as policy entrepreneur in the spread of Right-to-Work laws in the United States between 1944 and 1960, while the other addresses the diffusion of international standards for aircraft registration and operation into the United States in the years immediately following World War I. Papers on a multitude of subjects within the area of regulatory diffusion would work well with this panel. Information on the conference and the CFP can be found at https://jph.asu.edu/2016-about , and you can reach me at seanseyer@ku.edu . Proposals are due December 4, 2015.

The biennial conference is not exclusive in terms of its theme, and reflects the diversity of the discipline of the social history of medicine. Call for Papers Proposals that consider all topics relevant to the history of medicine broadly conceived are invited, but the 2016 committee encourages pro
