Call for Interviews of Black American Women Veterans of the Vietnam War

I would like to interview Black American women - enlisted, officers, nurses, donut dollies, Red Cross volunteers, journalists, etc. - who were stationed in Vietnam during the US war for a thesis about their experiences. I will be conducting interviews via Zoom, phone, and email. Please contact me if you - or someone you know - would generously agree to share your recollections with me. My email is ajhende2@ncsu.edu

UPDATED: Roundtable on African American Families in the Civil War Era (Part 2)

Dear H-CivWar Subscribers,

Today we are continuing our roundtable discussion on the complexities of life for African American families in the Civil War era. Joining me for this discussion are Hilary N. Green (University of Alabama), Kelly D. Mezurek (Walsh University), and Amy Murrell Taylor (University of Kentucky). Each scholar touches on many vital issues that argue analyzing African American families provide us with a more profound and personal way of understanding the war and its aftermath.

Re: The Writer as Psychological Warrior: Intellectuals, Propaganda, and Modern Conflict

I have no paper to present or proposal for one. However, the theme reminds me of Norman Mailer's comment -- "major war novels are not difficult to write -- it's just difficult to find writers of sizeable talent who come close to war." There have been a few intellectuals who did come close to war, e.g. George Orwell. But most manage to dodge that bullet.
