On February 21, 2017, H-Net Council voted to de-commission H-Shukyo. The network has been largely unused and ran without editors for an extended period of time. Attempts to find new ones did not work out. Rather than continuing attempts to revive an unused network, we suggest prospective subscribers join our much larger and active networks in related fields. These might include H-JapanH-NE-AsiaH-BuddhismH-Asia and many  more of 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
