HAW Conference Planned for April 5-7, 2013
The Historians Against the War Steering Committee has begun planning for a HAW-sponsored conference April 5-7 (Friday evening April 5 through Sunday morning April 7) at Towson University, just outside Baltimore. The theme will be "The New Faces of War." The conference will be co-sponsored by the university's College of Liberal Arts. A Call for Proposals will be circulated soon after Labor Day. This will be the third national conference organized by HAW; the others were in 2006 in Austin, Texas, and 2008 in Atlanta, Georgia.
