Over the next five weeks, Historians for Peace and Democracy (H-PAD) is encouraging members and supporters around the country to organize virtual talks or panels – delivered via Zoom or Skype—on key issues in this election regarding both domestic and foreign policy.
We have created a speakers list of more than thirty prominent historians and activists, who are willing to participate without honoraria in these virtual events—we call these Issues Forums. The speakers list is below with the name and affiliation of each speaker, links to information about each speaker, topics and areas on which each is willing to present, and a contact email address.
Because time is so short, we are asking you, as a prospective Issues Forum organizer, to contact speakers on the list directly by email to discuss the event you have in mind, its date and time, and its logistics. We (the H-PAD Steering Committee) would, though, appreciate a note when an Issue Forum is set up, and a brief sum-up after one occurs.
Times are difficult now, and the struggle is intense. Please consider scheduling an Issues Forum in your locale! Or–an additional idea–set up a speaker as part of a regular distance or hybrid class, and then invite others to join the class presentation.
