Welcome to H-Kentucky
The goal of H-Kentucky is to create an online collaborative environment to facilitate communication and the exchange or scholarly and pedagogical ideas among teachers, researchers, scholars, advanced students, and related professionals (e.g. local historians, librarians, archivists, genealogists), all in an open, democratic, respectful and non-partisan manner. H-Kentucky especially welcomes those who are interested in Kentucky, as well as those in any history/humanities field who live and/or work in Kentucky.

Recently the H-Net VP of Research & Publications, Robert Cassanello, published a new blog post on the H-Net Executive Council network about an exciting new initiative he's leading with a new network called H-Podcast. I am excited to see where it goes - and I'll keep you all informed as it goes since I'm on the Advisory Board for H-Podcast. Here's his blog posting, cross-posted below for you to think about.
