Call for Editors, H-US1918-45

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.

Welcome to the New Network

Dear Subscribers,

As you are now able to see, we have made the transition to the new platform.

Although I am still learning the ropes, this is a much more user-friendly format that lends itself to a cooperative editorial effort. For all my good intentions, over the past two years I found myself limited in my ability to make use of the help offered to me. For that I am sincerely sorry.
