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.
I suspect by now we've all heard of McGraw-Hill's appalling conflation of slaves with "workers" who came to America to work. If not, you can read up a bit right here. I'd be interested in hearing what scholars on H-Ethnic think about this.

Meyer, Sabine N. We Are What We Drink: The Temperance Battle in Minnesota. Urbana: University of Illinois Press, 2015. ISBN 978-0-252-03935-5
A powerful study of identity formation and the power of place in the shaping of history.
As H-Net's Vice-President of Networks, I have been acting as Interim Editor of H-Intel, which lacks editors and an Advisory Board. Without both, H-Ethnic is in danger of shutting down. I am heartened by the recent activity on H-Ethnic so I am confident interest in the network is strong, and the subject matter is certainly timely. H-Ethnic needs field experts to assume control and take advantage of the opportunity to speak to research in Ethnic Studies.
