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

Stepping down as Lead Editor of H-Shukyo & Looking for new Editors

Hello folks, it has been a fun ride, but I'm stepping down as lead editor of H-Shukyo.

It was great to see a small email list I created at Williams (Shumon-L) grow, join H-net, and evolve into H-Shukyo and then make the transition to H-Net 2.0. Some of the content and discussions on this list have been awesome and I'm especially proud of the various reviews we've had commissioned over the years.
