H-Low Countries strives to create an international community of scholars with diverse methodological approaches, archival experiences, teaching styles, and intellectual traditions. The primary purpose is to develop an international network for discussion and collaboration on issues and ideas relevant to the study of the Low Countries as a whole and to the different national histories in particular.

Call for Reviewers--and books!

H-Low Countries is actively recruiting reviewers for its book reviews program. Our current roster of reviewers is weighted somewhat heavily towards the history of the early modern period, New Netherland, and the Holocaust. There are some exciting recent titles that we would like to have reviewed, for example in postcolonial studies. If interested in becoming a reviewer, please see the original CFR for details: https://networks.h-net.org/node/7833/discussions/69501/call-reviewers

Additionally, if you are a publisher and would like to suggest a title for review, please contact us and we can try to match the book to a qualified reviewer. We have reviewers who can review books written in Dutch, German, and other languages. The inventory of books that are sent to H-Net for review and suitable for H-Low Countries is rather small at present and does not appear to contain Dutch presses.

Finally, if you have already contacted us to be a reviewer but have not yet received an assignment, please be patient. We are slowly but surely making assignments. If you wish to review and expand your listed areas of expertise, you may contact us directly.

Call for Reviewers

H-Low Countries is pleased to announce the revival of our network's own book reviews program. H-Net Reviews play an increasingly prominent role in academic discussions, taking advantage of the flexibility and relative speed of online publication while maintaining the highest scholarly standards. And now, under the H-Commons platform, list editors can easily crosspost reviews from other networks, greatly expanding the potential readership for reviews published on our network.
