Athens, Ga. – The University of Georgia Press is pleased to launch a new series on the American Civil War.

Hello Subscribers, I am Tamrala Swafford and one of the new editors for H-Appalachia. Along with my new colleagues Dominic and Sandra, I will be working to transform this network into a dynamic resource for the study of Appalachia.
I am currently teaching for University of Maryland University College and in the process of revising my dissertation on the Eastern Band of Cherokee Indians and the traditional institution known as gadugi. This is a Cherokee means of self-help and mutual aid.
I look forward to becoming acquainted with those who share my research interests and in providing new resources for your research and teaching.
In addition to Eastern Cherokee history, I am also interested in the environmental history of Southern Appalachia.
The University of Illinois Press will publish the new Journal of Civil and Human Rights, beginning in 2015.

The journal features research-based articles, interviews, editorials, and reviews of books, films, museum exhibits, and Web sites.”
