The camapign against the Oral History Conference at the Hebrew University of Jerusalem has recevied a major boost.

We are pleased to announce that the planned June 2014 “International
Oral History Conference” being organized by Hebrew University
of Jerusalem has been dealt a double blow with the cancellation of their
two international keynote speakers: Alessandro Portelli (Italy) and
Mary Marshall Clark (USA).  The university’s claim to be
hosting the “first international oral history conference”
was unfounded when they made it; it is even less true now.
