H-Southern-Industry is a continuation of the successful academic discussion list that was created to support the Southern Industrialization Project (SIP). The original SIP listserv began in January 1997 and currently has members from around the world who are interested in exchanging ideas and data about Southern industrialization. In October 2012, the organization vote to change its name to Organization for the Study of Southern Economy, Culture and Society (OSSECS).
