Members of the American Geographical Society’s Writers Circle recently circulated two Op Eds. Julie Michelle Klinger and Emma Gaalaas Mullaney are geographers doing research on women veterans of armed struggles, and in this commentary published on October 18, they explain the international controversy over human rights tribunals in East Timor and one former guerilla’s call for forgiveness. David Keeling, AGS Councilor, had his most recent Op Ed published in the Washington Times on October 28th and in the Hawaii Reporter on October 26th. It argues that geographic ignorance on the part of public policy makers is not just embarrassing for a nation. It is dangerous! Check out all the AGS Op Eds on its Media webpage.
