Historians Against the War National Teach-In Project, April 9-10
The group Historians Against the War (HAW), a network of scholars formed at the American Historical Association in January 2003, is sponsoring a National Teach-In Project on the theme “Iraq: Anatomy of a Crisis” for April 9-10. HAW would like to offer all historians a chance to participate in this event. For information on this initiative please see the HAW website. Currently there are over 20 colleges and universities participating in this coordinated initiative to teach about the implications of the current war in the Middle East.
If your campus is also scheduling a teach-in on or near these dates and you would like to be listed as part of this nation-wide project, please send information to the HAW coordinators via email.
If you would like to participate in this event but can’t schedule a campus-wide event, we would encourage you to take some time during your class periods on April 9 and/or 10 to allow students to discuss the war and ask questions about it. This would give individual teachers an opportunity to link classroom material with current events and to get students to think about the crisis in Iraq in conjunction with historical themes.
If you or others in your department are willing and able to take part in the Teach-In in one of these ways or if you have other ideas about how to participate, please inform HAW by email and your campus and your name will be listed on the website. We hope this will send a strong message of unity to those participating and to others concerned about the crisis.
