That is the Society for Historians of the Early American Republic.  It will be good to go back.  I haven’t been to SHEAR in close to a decade!  Here is my panel.  Thanks to Caitlin Fitz for the invite.

See you in Boston in July!

  1. John,
    I am sure the discussions will be enlightening. But I do recommend you take some calming herbal teas and prerecorded relaxation “spa” music in the event Trump is still in office. The representatives from The New Yorker and The Atlantic might well be in in total meltdown by that time. In addition to offering your erudite perspective on American historical issues, you might be needed to help lower the stress quotients of at least two your fellow panelists.


  2. I joined SHEAR a few years ago and thoroughly enjoy reading the journal which they produce! I look forward to reading your reports from the conference and hope those of us unable to attend will be able to view your panel on the internet.
