H-DEMOCRACY Editors wanted!


My name is Patrick Cox, Vice-President of Networks at H-NET and acting editor of H-Democracy.

I'm writing to ask if any amongst you would be willing to take over the editorship of H-Democracy. This 400+ member network has no one running it right now and has gone a bit quiet. I'm no expert in the field, and editor of two other H-NET networks and my duties as VP I am unable to commit the time it takes to run the network successfully myself. I will, however, see the network through transition to new editorship by folks more expert in the field than I.
