New Project: Domestic Terrorism

The History Commons has a new project up, focusing on domestic terrorism:

US Domestic Terrorism

The project has nothing to do with the recent, tragic Arizona shootings, as it was conceived and implemented weeks ago. However, material from that shooting, and the issues surrounding it, is welcome and necessary. If you’re interested in writing up some of that material, join us.

Documenting Wikileaks for HC

Filed under: community,new project — Max @ 9:41 pm

I assume you’re familiar with the Wikileaks controversy. The History Commons takes no position on the truth or falsehood of the array of allegations leveled at Wikileaks, Julian Assange, or the quality and effect of the material it has disclosed. What we’re interested in is covering it. If you’re interested in covering the material that the organization has made available, or if you’re interested in covering the facts behind the controversy and the reaction against Wikileaks from the numerous governments that are trying to muzzle it, we’d love to hear from you. Post here if you’d like to take a shot at some coverage.
