On November 22, 2015 H-Net Council passed a resolution to decommission H-Southern-Lit. Rather than maintaining several smaller and fairly inactive networks focussing on discreet portions of Southern Studies, H-Net Council decided instead to focus efforts on reviving a single and much larger network, H-South. Would be subscribers to this network are encouraged to subscribe instead to H-South.
Questions about this shut down can be sent to Patrick Cox, H-Net Vice-President for Networks, at firstname.lastname@example.org
