AHA 2011: Boston

Early Modern Spanish History Notes reads the American Historical Association Conference program so you don’t have to! Following are the panels with early modern Spanish papers in them. Note: I’m leaving out  the Latin American panels/papers, because the AHA is also the meeting of the Conference on Latin American History, so there are to many for me to list. For the same reason, I have left out non-Spanish papers that appear in these panels, so some panels may seem to have an unusually small number of papers.
