Overview and metadata sections

Princeton University Library. Princeton Peace Network.

The Princeton Peace Network (PPN) was a student organization that formed in September 2001. The PPN was most active during the 2003 invasion of Iraq by the United States. In their effort to encourage the Princeton community to actively engage with peaceful alternatives to the use of military force and to increase a critical awareness of American foreign policy issues, the PPN facilitated teach-ins and collaborated with the Coalition for Peace Action and the Woodrow Wilson School's program on Science and Global Security, especially with Dr. Zia Mian. The PPN seems to have disbanded some time after 2006, the last time their website was updated.

These records contain protest materials, flyers, news articles about the Iraq War, material used in the PPN's teach-ins, and their public website.

This collection is arranged alphabetically.

These records were donated by Peter Wolanin, a former member of the organization, in 2017.

For preservation reasons, original analog and digital media may not be read or played back in the reading room. Users may visually inspect physical media but may not remove it from its enclosure. All analog audiovisual media must be digitized to preservation-quality standards prior to use. Audiovisual digitization requests are processed by an approved third-party vendor. Please note, the transfer time required can be as little as several weeks to as long as several months and there may be financial costs associated with the process. Requests should be directed through the Ask Us Form.
