[haw-info] HAW Notes
The first two of these notes relate to the Organization of American Historians (OAH) annual meeting in Washington, DC later this week.
1. HAW and the Labor and Working Class History Association (LAWCHA) are co-sponsoring a special OAH session entitled "Remembering Howard Zinn: A Sharing of Memories and Thoughts," 5:30 to 7:00 pm Friday, April 9 in the Lincoln Room, on the mezzanine of the Hilton Washington, the convention hotel. Howard's long-time friend Staughton Lynd will give a formal appreciation, followed by an open mike.
2. Also on Friday at the OAH, we will also have a literature table, probably in the same area as other nonprofits. If anyone is willing to help staff it, please write to email@example.com. In any case, if you get a chance, please look for it and stop by.
3. A paper given by at the first HAW national conference (in Austin, Texas, 2006) by military veteran and historian Paul Atwood has been greatly expanded and now exists in book form under the title War and Empire: The American Way of Life (Palgrave Macmillan, 2010). http://www.amazon.com/War-Empire-American-Way-Life/dp/0745327648/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&s=books&qid=1269534974&sr=1-1
