[haw-info] HAW Notes (including links to recent articles of interest)
To members and friends of Historians Against the War,
Here are some notes, followed by our more or less biweekly set of links to recent articles by historians (or at least with substantial historical content) on HAW-relevant topics.
1. Today (October 7) Iraq Veterans Against the War (IVAW) launched its campaign called Operation Recovery: Stop the Deployment of Traumatized Troops. On its website, at http://www.ivaw.org/operation-recovery, IVAW explains the background of the campaign and asks for public support.
2. More than 150 scholars, including many historians, signed a September 29 press release (at https://nacla.org/node/6759) calling on Georgetown University to revoke its appointment of former Colombia president Álvaro Uribe as a "Distinguished Scholar in the Practice of Global Leadership." Uribe's administration was linked to numerous human rights violations.
3. Frank Brodhead, a history PhD and activist, sends weekly e-mailings under the title of "Afghanistan War Weekly," summarizing news reports from a range of periodicals. They are archived on the United for Peace and Justice website at http://www.unitedforpeace.org/article.php?id=4150, and anyone can get on the e-mailing list by writing to the author at firstname.lastname@example.org.
