[haw-info] HAW Notes 4/16/12: OAH convention; thank-yous
For those attending the Organization of American Historians convention in Milwaukee later this week (Thurs,.-Sun. April 19-22), here are three sessions that may be of interest to many members and friends of HAW:
--- "Historical Perspectives on the Democratic Revolutions in the Middle East," featuring Rashid Khalidi, Juan Cole, Melani McAllister, and Michael Sherry, 10:30 Friday morning April 20.
--- "David Montgomery - Labor Historian, Activist, Teacher, Mentor," OAH plenary session 3:00 Friday afternoon April 20 (David was one of the founders of Historians Against the War in 2003 and a Steering Committee member for several years)
--- "The Context and Practice of the 'Occupy' Movement," 10:30 Sunday morning April 22 (this one isn't in the on-line convention program but will take place in Room 203-C, FAC)
Speaking of the OAH, we would like to thank Alice Kessler-Harris, current president of the OAH and a professor at Columbia University, for taking time to secure a room at Columbia for a meeting of the HAW Steering Committee this summer.
And speaking of people who have been helpful to HAW, the following Web address has information on the international "How Class Works" conference at Stony Brook University on June 6-9:
http://www.stonybrook.edu/workingclass/conference/2012. The conference organizer, Mike Zweig, who teaches at Stony Brook and is a founder and leader of U.S. Labor Against the War, has arranged meeting spaces for several HAW in recent years, for which we are grateful.
