ANN: Announcement Regarding H-German Housing Bulletin

Dear H-German Readers,

After the month of January, H-German will no longer offer a housing bulletin. Due to changes to H-Net policy (and the growing number of housing websites available for academics) we can no longer offer the same service that we once did. We have placed on our website a link with housing resources to consider (Berlin Scholars, Sabbatical Homes, WG-Gesucht, H-Soz u Kult), and we will annually post an updated list of housing services. 

Although we're sad to see this service go, we're excited to find new ways to support H-German readers in 2015.

ANN: H-German Syllabus Contest (March 2015)

The H-German editors are pleased to announce the fourth biennial syllabus contest. Started in 2006, the contest has helped H-German create a syllabus database, and the current contest aims to expand the collection. We hope that this database will serve as a resource for new and more established scholars alike, whether in developing new courses or revamping older courses with different readings, films, and documents. (View the database here.)
