Hi – I’m going to stop posting conference papers and reviews from now on – no time. I’ve thought about quitting the blog altogether but I do want to keep track of books and articles published in the field for my own purposes so I might as well post them. But conference papers and reviews take up more than half the time of posting, and unlike 11 years ago everything is online now, so, no more. Thanks!

Okay this is two months too late, but just to have it on the record I want to include the panels that focus on early modern Iberian concerns (as always, I am excluding panels from the Conference on Latin American History because you can find their program here) (and excluding single papers on panels because that would be too much work tbh).
