H-Levant is a moderated network for those interested in the scholarly discussion of the modern history and culture of the countries of the Eastern Mediterranean. Called "the Levant" in English and "al-mashriq" in Arabic, the region today includes Iraq, Syria, Lebanon, Israel, the Palestinian territories, Jordan and parts of Turkey. While most of the inhabitants are Arabic-speaking Muslims, there are significant populations of Jews and Christians. And although the peoples of the region are diverse, they possess a shared history stretching back millenia.

H-Levant: Call for New Editor

Hi All:

This is just a reminder that H-Levant is looking for candidates to serve as editor when I step down in May/June. Under the new Commons system, H-Net lists are encouraged to have multiple editors, whether sharing the work or dividing it thematically.

Please send expressions of interest or queries to: andrea dot l dot stanton at gmail dot com.

Thank you!

Cordially,

Andrea L Stanton
