ORONO – A group of University of Maine history professors opposed to the war in Iraq will hold a “teach-in,” starting at 7 p.m. Tuesday, Oct. 24, in Room 101, Neville Hall at the University of Maine.
The event, called “The Iraq War and The Elections: A Teach-In Sponsored by Historians against the War,” is part of a national educational initiative by historians opposed to the war.
Similar forums are being held around the country and the University of Southern Maine.
Speakers include professors Alex Grab, Ngo-Vinh Long, Nathan Godfried, Beth McKillen and Michael Lange.
Brian Clement, a UM history student and Iraq war veteran, and Scott Ruffner, a local political activist, also will speak.
The event will include a question-and-answer period.
