[haw-info] HAW Notes 3/6/13: Flyer for the "New Faces of War" conference; links to recent articles of interest

To members and friends of Historians Against the War,

Can you help us with publicizing the April 5-7 "New Faces of War" conference in Baltimore, sponsored by HAW?  The attachment to this message is a flyer for the conference.  We would be grateful for any way in which you could aid in its circulation, either by forwarding it or by printing and posting it.  As you can tell from the conference website (http://www.historiansagainstwar.org/conf2013), there is an impressive lineup of speakers and panels.  Thanks for any help in getting the word around.
