On April 5, 2016, H-Net Council voted to de-commission H-Nilas. The network has been unused. Rather than attempt to revive an unused network, we suggest H-Nilas’s 257 subscribers join our much larger and far more active networks in related fields. H-Animal is a multi-disciplinary forum for the study of animals in human culture, welcoming scholars from across the humanistic and social science disciplines, with historians, sociologists, literary and film scholars, anthropologists, philosophers, geographers, among its 1100 subscribers. H-Animal's syllabi exchange is especially impressive. Additionally, H-Environment networks nearly 4200 scholars in the field of environmental history around the world and is supported by the American Society for Environmental History and the European Society for Environmental History. Among other things, H-Environment regularly publishes books reviews of new texts in the field. Both networks have dedicated editors who make good use of H-Net’s online capabilities.

Feel free to contact me with any questions about this decommissioning.

 

All the best,

 

Patrick Cox

H-Net Vice-President for Networks
