Don’t Miss the Film Festival at the American Historical Association Meeting

The American Historical Association will host its 9th Annual Film Festival this week at its meeting in New York City. The theme of this year’s festival is Protest and Resistance.  The screenings were organized by me and Alex Lichtenstein (Indiana University, Bloomington).
