New Editors needed for H-Genocide
We’re looking for some new editors to run H-Genocide. I’ve done what I can to hold down the ship but we’d like to get the position filled with a team of people who know the field much better than I.

Help with Inventory of "Beyond Testimony" Projects?
I am writing to ask for help with a large undertaking: an inventory of work with genocide (including Holocaust) and other political violence survivors that is not limited to the conventional testimony collection/archive model. While they are various, the following dimensions characterize many of the projects that I have been listing:
1. At least some degree of sustained acquaintance with the survivors involved--more than a single interview.
World War I on H-Net
H-Net is pleased to announce the launch of the World War I Crossroads, a collaboration between editors and networks on the Commons dedicated to the scholarly study and discussion of World War I and the centennial commemoration of the conflict. This new Crossroads network will produce original content, facilitate initiatives on the conflict across multiple H-Net Networks, and highlight World War I postings from anywhere on the H-Net Commons.

Re: INQ: Studying Atrocity, Trauma, and Genocide: Scholars, and archival trauma
I have just happened on Mark Mengerink's interesting query on the possible traumatic effect when one immersesmerses oneself in Holocaust research. From my own personal experience in the private and public papers of Robert Briscoe, a member of the Irish-Jewish community who was involved in the Irish War of Independence alongside Michael Collins and Eamon de Valera before becoming involved the 1930s German-Jewish emigration effort. He then joined with Jabotinsky and the revisionists in their desperate attempt to break the British blockade of the Mandate.
INQ: Studying Atrocity, Trauma, and Genocide
I turn to colleagues on this list for assistance in identifying studies examining the psychological impact on scholars of studying trauma/atrocity/genocide. Does studying such topics impact the scholars psychologically?
I hope to incorporate data from such studies into my current project. I thank you in advance for your assistance.
