H-Transnational German Studies provides a moderated interdisciplinary network for the discussion of topics relevant to the study of the German diaspora and intercultural transfer between German and non-German societies from the 17th century to the present. H-TGS was formerly H-GAGCS (German-American and German-Canadian Studies). Its archives are available here.

H-TGS is currently looking for new editors to take over the network and take an active role in developing new online materials and resources for the field. We also looking for contributors, bloggers, discussants, resources gatherers, etc. If you are interested in helping build this site, please contact Patrick Cox, H-Net's Vice-President for Networks, at vp-net@mail.h-net.msu.edu.
