Dear H-SC Members:
I am writing to announce a number of changes at H-SC. We are bringing on two new editors and planning efforts to revitalize the list and expand its content offerings. This is timely in a number of ways including the fact that H-SC opened its virtual doors in May of 2006 so this is our Ten Year Anniversary!
The changes are, in part, a response to the opportunities that the H-Net Commons presents us and because our only Book Review editor, Phillip Stone, is ending his tenure in that role after ten full years. I want to personally thank Phillip for his work as co-editor of H-SC and Book Review editor. I appreciate his steadfastness and am glad that H-SC led to the opportunity for us to work together. Philip will remain an active member of H-SC.
Going forward the H-SC editors will be Evan Kutzler of Georgia Southwestern as web content editor and David Dangerfield of USC Salkehatchie as our new reviews editor. I will continue in my role. Our goal is to grow and become more vital to the community of scholars, public historians, teachers and enthusiasts for South Carolina history and culture. There is the potential for this list and its content home on the Commons to become hubs for many kinds of materials: blogs, reviews or books, exhibits, films, a calendar of events, bibliographies on important Palmetto State topics, and, no doubt, categories that you will imagine.
To accomplish these goals we would like to invite you to participate. Shortly you will receive an email from David Dangerfield regarding reviews which we plan to expand to include exhibits, films, and web sources in addition to continuing our commitment to books. In the coming weeks of May you can expect to hear more from Evan as he works to create web content.
So, please consider being a contributor to H-SC. In addition, help us to knit together the community of people interested in South Carolina by encouraging people to join.
