H-Slavery has been a leading online forum for the academic study of slavery since its founding in 1995. H-Slavery serves as a focal point for informed, moderated discussion and produces diverse academic content including book reviews, blog posts, topical guides, and more. H-Slavery depends on an all-volunteer academic staff composed of scholars of all ranks, who you can read more about here. Scholars of all disciplinary, methodological, and topical backgrounds are welcome to set up a free subscription and to inquire about serving as an editor with H-Slavery. If you'd like to learn more about volunteering with us, please see here. You can find us on Twitter @H_Slavery_HNet.
