On February 21, 2017, H-Net Council voted to de-commission H-Risk-and-Safety. The network has been largely unused and ran without editors an extended period of time. Rather than continuing attempts to revive an unused network, we suggest propsective subscribers choose some of H-Net's other larger and more active networks in related fields from among our 180+ networks.

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


All the best,

Patrick Cox

H-Net Vice-President for Networks

I'm unable to attend, unfortunately, as it looks really promising, but I have asked for a short report in due course. For those who might be interested, please contact Peter Itzen for further information.

Best wishes,

Soyuz: The Research Network for Postsocialist Cultural Studies is announcing a call for an invited session at the 2016 American Anthropological Association Meeting in Minneapolis, MN. We seek panels that "reflect the state-of-the-art and thematic concerns" in our field. We would like to encourage all innovative panels, and especially those that have cross-regional reach.

CFP: Accidents and the State in the 20th century

Dear all,

Subscribers will hopefully be very interested in the CfP below - this looks like a great workshop, and hopefully a report will be featured here in due course. Deadline for proposals is 29 February, so only a bit of time to be thinking about this. Further details of the workshop to follow when the programme is known.

Best wishes,
