H-Pennsylvania is a network for scholars, teachers, archivists, librarians, and others interested in the history and culture of Pennsylvania.

As long time H-Pennsylvania list members can plainly see, we've undergone some changes, and there are more to come! But let's keep the conversation going and the information flowing. We still want all the CFP's, announcements, queries, and all other things Pennsylvanian that we loved on H-Pennsylvania.

To submit them now, simply scroll down to the "Write New Discussion Post" link on this page. Enter your post in the field that pops up, add a few tags (or "keywords"), and click "Review" at the bottom of the page. Everything look OK? Then click "Submit to Editor" at the bottom of the review page and that's it! And there's a more elaborate version of these instructions here: https://networks.h-net.org/node/905/pages/977/submit-discussion-post.
