CFP: AHA Panel on Kennedy and East Asia
From: Brian Hilton

A colleague and I are seeking additional panelists, a commentator, and a chair for an AHA panel focusing on Washington’s views and policies toward East Asia during the Kennedy years, with a tentative theme of “Shifting Threat Perceptions.” Our papers currently focus on China and Taiwan, but we welcome papers on any nation or issue related to the region. If interested, please contact Brian Hilton at
