Celebrating #HNet25!

The #HNet25 Crossroads is the home base for H-Net's 25th anniversary celebration. H-Net is celebrating 25 years of service by recalling topical discussions, teaching and research resources, and milestones in H-Net's journey from a few email listservs to an online academic commons. Revisit the history of H-Net discussions from our 180+ networks and discover teaching and research resources in the Mining the Logs project. Under Networks Celebrate, mark the date with individual networks recalling their histories and looking forward to the future of the H-Net Commons. Help H-Net continue to flourish by donating. Thank you for being a part of the H-Net community. Happy birthday, H-Net!

Happy birthday, H-Net!  Please support our efforts to keep this archive free, secure and accessible!

Re: H-Net is 25! Join the Celebration!

When I first joined the H-Net community in the mid 1990s, I was using the email from my graduate school program. Back then, everyone's email address was quite strictly dictated by each academic institution, but I somehow found a way for my UCLA email account to identify me as Lois "Puts the Femme in Feminist" Leveen. From time to time, I still come across another early user who, hearing the name Lois Leveen, remembers that.

Re: H-Net is 25! Join the Celebration!

H-Net has been an integral, irreplaceable part of my career as an independent scholar of World War II. I have printouts in my files from my first H-Net gleanings and conversations in 1993...In the past few years, it has informed me of Calls for Papers that have made it possible for me to participate in conferences around the world. Essentially, H-Net brings me the colleagues and the cohort that I otherwise would never have. Thank you...and many more happy and productive returns of the day!
