To members and friends of Historians Against the War,

1.  The conference "Looking Back, Moving Forward: War Resisters in North
America," endorsed by Historians Against the War and other groups, takes
place September 23-24 (Friday evening and all day Saturday) at Steelworkers
Hall in Toronto.  The Web site is
http://warresistersconference.activehistory.ca, and there is a poster for
the conference at
http://www.historiansagainstwar.org/hawconf/warresisters/posterletter.pdf.
Questions can be sent to Luke Stewart at l5stewar at uwaterloo.ca (the first
character is the letter "l," not the numeral one.

2.  Also, registration has begun for the Washington DC conference "Peace in
Asia and the Pacific: Alternatives to Asia-Pacific Militarization," of which
HAW is a co-sponsor.  It will be held at American University on September
21-22 and will feature knowledgeable speakers on the major countries in the
region as well as US policy.  The American Friends Service Committee
initiated the conference.  The Web site (still a work in progress) is
http://afsc.org/peace-asia-pacific-conference.

3.  In the recent-articles lists that we send out (see below), occasionally
a link will not work on some computers.  In these cases, it usually will
work to copy the URL and paste it in to the address box of your browser.

4. The *Radical History Review *has just published a special issue entitled
"Historicizing 9/11"; contents are listed at
http://rhr.dukejournals.org/content/current.  None of the articles is
included in the list below because the *RHR *is published by Duke University
Press, whose journals are "gated":  on-line access is mainly by way of
institutional subscriptions.
