My name is Patrick Cox, Vice-President of Networks at H-NET and acting editor of H-Appalachia.
I'm writing to ask if any amongst you would be willing to take over the editorship of H-Appalachia. This 250-member network has no one running it right now and has gone a bit quiet. I am unable to commit the time it takes to run the network myself (as editor of two other H-NET networks and my duties as VP) so I will eventually need to stop working on H-Appalachia. I will, however, see the network through transition to editorship by one or more folks more expert in the field than I.
The program committee for the Kentucky-Tennessee American Studies Association invites panel and paper proposals for its May 2014 conference in partnership with the Center for Historic Preservation and the Murfreesboro and Rutherford County Heritage Center. This year’s theme is “Crossing Over: Borders and Bridges.” The committee is especially interested in proposals that incorporate the conference theme: how borders and bridges, real or imaginary, shape the American experience broadly understood. We encourage proposals that creatively explore the meaning of crossing over, whether politically, culturally, economically, or socially. In keeping with the conference theme, we welcome cross-disciplinary work.
