As a new member of the H-Louisiana discussion list, I wanted to formally introduce myself and my company, The History Press. We are a traditional publisher that focuses on local and regional history and culture books by local authors and historians. Currently, we are seeking authors who are interested in writing about local history throughout Louisiana. The History Press has a wide range of series for authors to choose from, however, we are also interested in books outside of these series.
The Association for Documentary Editing (ADE) welcomes applications for the 44th Institute for the Editing of Historical Documents, to be held 13–17 June 2015 at the University of Nebraska—Lincoln.
