They will focus on the impact on overall scholarship, individual scholars, and institutional efforts at inclusion. Panelists include:

Lien-Hang Nguyen (Columbia), contributor to “How Gender Affects the Experience of Archival Research and Field Work” (Modern American History, 2019)
Joanne Meyerowitz (Yale), president of the Organization of American Historians
David C. Engerman (Yale) will moderate the discussion. Advanced reading of the articles mentioned above recommended but not required.
