Please share other institutions and organizations working to end modern forms of slavery not included here.

Finding Aid for Files of the Communist Party of the USA in the Comintern Archives

The website listed in all catalog entries for the Finding Aid for the microfilm of the Files of the Communist Party of the USA in the Comintern Archives appears to be inoperative. Further, some libraries (such as Princeton) do not have a paper version of the Finding Aid. Does anyone on H-HOAC know where I might find a copy of the Findiing Aid?  (I'm a historian of labor, not communism, so I apologize if the answer to this is already well known.)

Thanks,

Jewish-Muslim Research Network and reading group

Dear colleagues,

I am writing to share news of the launch of a research network based in Manchester, UK. The Jewish-Muslim Research Network (JMRN) is an cross-disciplinary initiative bringing together researchers studying Jews, Muslims, Judaism, Islam and the links and interactions between them, across historical and geographical contexts. By taking a broad definition of the above terms, JMRN hopes to facilitate productive discussion between scholars who otherwise might not come into contact.
