Welcome to H-Ethnic, a member of H-Net Humanities & Social Sciences OnLine. This is one of the original H-net networks, with documented discussion logs dating back to June 1993. H-Ethnic encourages scholarly discussion of ethnic history, broadly defined. We make available diverse bibliographical, research and teaching aids.
Below you will find the latest books in Race and Ethnicity Studies. The list includes new titles streaming from the H-Net Book Channel plus new book announcements posted to H-Ethnicity by subscribers. On the right are announcements and discussion in the field. CFPs can be found in the link on the right side of the page.
If you would like to be a part of our team, please reach out to us, via the “network staff list.” We would love to have the opportunity to get to know you.
