[Word has reached us of a call for the 2021 Congress & History Conference in the guise of the following open letter, dated December 8, from Burdett Loomis, University of Kansas. The organizers tell us that the legal historian Maggie Blackhawk is among the organizers. DRE. H/t: JC]

Here's a link to the application form. Please submit the form and send a backup copy to me (firstname.lastname@example.org), to be shared with Steve. Getting the word out about this excellent, small conference is important, especially beyond the traditional group of legislative scholars. Please circulate this to colleagues and graduate students who may not have received it and post this on list-serves that you may be a part of. Please don't hesitate to contact me (email@example.com) or Steven (smith@wustl) if you have any questions.
Although I’d love to host you all at KU’s Dole Institute of Politics in June, I’m afraid, for this year, we’ll have to keep our distance. Still, last year’s conference was a success via Zoom, and I’m sure this one will be as well. If you’d like to see the kinds of papers that have been presented at recent conferences, you can go to https://congressandhistory.mit.edu/past-conferences These programs are illustrative, and we certainly hope to broaden the scope of work in 2021.
