Re: Announcing new H-Asia editors

Greetings H-Asia,

I am writing to introduce myself as a new editor for our network. As a part of the editorial team I am particularly eager to work on projects that will help to build an annotated archive of syllabi, teaching guides, reading lists in particular fields, and an archive of images that could be used in the classroom. I look forward to your input on these projects as I move ahead.
