Welcome to H-US1918-45, a member of H-Net Humanities & Social Sciences OnLine. H-US1918-45, The New Deal era and its Origins, provides a forum for research and teaching the history of the United States, from 1918 to 1945.
H-US1918-45 seeks to build a team of volunteers to serve as editors and review editors for the network. Editors will be trained to use the H-Net Commons, our new content management platform, to moderate discussions, build content-rich projects for teaching and scholarship in the field of mid-20th century American history (roughly 1918-45), and collaborate in the management of the network.
As you are now able to see, we have made the transition to the new platform.
