[haw-info] HAW Notes (with links to recent articles of interest)

To members and friends of Historians Against the War

 

Here are some notes, followed by our biweekly set of links to history-related articles on HAW-relevant topics.

 

1.  Talks given at the HAW panel at this year's AHA convention ("Obama's Troubling First Year: What Went Wrong, and What Can Historians Do About It?") have been posted on the HAW web site, at http://www.historiansagainstwar.org/aha10.  They include the introduction to the panel by Andor Skotnes and talks by Nelson Lichtenstein and Margaret Power.

 

2.  Mike Zweig of U.S. Labor Against the War has made a partly historical video entitled "Why Are We in Afghanistan."  The 27-minute video can be seen at http://www.WhyAreWeInAfghanistan.org, and this web page also has ordering information.

 

3.  The Radical History Review has issued a call for proposals for a special issue on "Historicizing 9/11," focusing on ways in which the September 11, 2001 events have been rendered as history.  The issue will include a section on experiences of people who have taught about these events at the college or K-12 levels. The call for proposals is at http://chnm.gmu.edu/rhr/calls.htm; the deadline is February 15.
