Dear H-Net Readers and Subscribers:
Welcome to H-Demog, a member of H-Net Humanities & Social Sciences OnLine, headquartered in the History Department at Michigan State University. H-Demog is an international scholarly network on demographic history.
H-Demog is currently looking for new editors to take over the network and take an active role in developing new online materials and resources for the field. We also looking for contributors, bloggers, discussants, resources gatherers, etc. If you are interested in helping build this site, please contact Patrick Cox, H-Net's Vice-President for Networks, at email@example.com.
Your network editor has reposted this from H-Announce. The byline reflects the original authorship.
These pleas for donations go out to every network on H-Net and I feel a little funny every time I see one appear on a network that has been so quiet for so long. This message in particular is odd as it emphasizes the good work of H-Net editors, then appears on a network that is silent because it has had no editor.
Dear H-Net subscribers and readers,
H-Net is uniquely poised in the online academic world in a way that other sites and outlets simply can't match. It isn't just H-Net's new publishing platform that makes that the case. In the past two years 280 new editors have joined H-Net. That's 280 scholars, researchers,
and teachers who have seen the potential of the H-Net Commons, gotten involved to help develop it, and are providing service to their fields by building resources and developing meaningful content with and for their peers.
The teaching resources in Jesse's post were all made by the hard working editors who manage those networks. They are excellent examples of the kind of things H-Net networks with full staffs of editors and Advisory Board members could be producing for their fields. But alas, H-Demog has no editors.
