Update on the H-Asia editorial team

Several new volunteers have joined the H-Asia editorial team over the past few months, and we will soon be trying out a new rotation system for the H-Asia work. You’ll have seen Aaron’s and Emilia’s names on recent Jobs and Announcements posts, and Jeremy will be joining in the work shortly. Beween us we cover five different countries (and more time zones): Austria, Canada, Pakistan, Thailand and the USA. Few of us have actually met each other in person; our communication with each other is via email and H-Net, as it is with most of you.
