QUERY: Help Needed: Special Exhibition "Cosmos Coffee"

Dear H-LatAm-members,

the Deutsches Museum in Munich, Germany is preparing a special and traveling exhibition entitled "Cosmos Coffee". It will feature coffee as global product from an intersectional perspective including biological, chemical, technical, economic and cultural sections.

I'm currently looking for objects and images for several sections of the exhibition:

Religious Newspapers and Writings, 1898

Since 2015, I've been working on a project regarding the Spanish-American War in NJ's Gateway Region (Bergen, Essex, Hudson, Passaic, Union and Middlesex counties).

Research Query: Tanakh/תנ״ך

I have seen Tanakh described as "the traditional name" for the Hebrew Bible — which it seems to me cannot be right.  (That, I think, would have been Mikra.)

Can anyone point me to the history of this word?  The dictionaries assign it to "the modern period" (which seems obvious), but … who coined it and when?  How long did it take to catch on?

Re: Presence of delegates from Portuguese African colonies at socialist conferences

I can only offer some fragments on this. There was evidently a PAIGC representative at the UK Labour Party Annual Conference in 1973 (1-5 October in Blackpool). Portuguese Africa was quite a prominent issue at the event because of the recent – fiercely contested – official visit of Caetano to London. Also, of course, the conference came just weeks after the PAIGC’s declaration of independence for Guinea-Bissau.
