The Dirksen Congressional Center invites applications for grants to fund research on congressional leadership and the U.S. Congress. The Center, named for the late Senate Minority Leader Everett M. Dirksen, is a private, nonpartisan, nonprofit research and educational organization devoted to the study of Congress. Since 1978, the Congressional Research Grants program has invested more than $915,136 to support over 425 projects. Applications are accepted at any time, but the deadline is March 1 for the annual selections, which are announced in April.
H-POL seeks to build a team of volunteers to serve as editors and review editors for the network. Editors will be trained to use the H-Net Commons, our new content management platform, to moderate discussions, build content-rich projects for teaching and scholarship in the field of the political history, and collaborate in the management of the network. The Commons interface is a simple site-design and publishing system that requires no advanced technical knowledge and enables editors to create custom pages that dynamically update with fresh material.
Our list has been successfully migrated to the new H-Net Commons. This new platform, built on the drupal content management system, integrates discussions, multimedia, and reviews into a single service staffed by volunteer field experts. It builds on H-Net’s guiding vision of scholarly networking and gives us the wherewithal to create new material that serves the unique interests of the communities of practice we have spent twenty years cultivating. The Commons accommodates blogs, discussions, custom pages of dynamic harvested content, reviews, and various multimedia (film and video, audio, images, documents) that are indexed for reuse and display.
