H-Peace seeks new editors....and more conflict

Patrick Cox, H-Net Vice President for Networks's picture

We’re looking for a new team to take over H-Peace and possibly take it in a more explicitly "peace and conflict studies" direction.

On all of H-Net’s networks, we’re excited to find people who are interested in using the digital humanities in their research, and in enhancing the role of digital humanities in their field. If you’ve got research interests in Peace and Conflict Studies and want to use digital spaces to bring your and others’ work to light, we’ve got the server space for you! As long as the subject is somewhere in peace and conflict, H-Peace-and-Cobflict has access to the full suite of H-Net tools and can help work it into to videos, blogs, articles, podcasts, roundtables, book reviews…

In the past year, H-Net has expanded its podcasting repertoire, begun its first open access peer reviewed journal, built new interactive capabilities, and much more is on the way. We will provide training and support to help folks with a desire to advance the field with valuable digital resources. A bit of tech comfort is a good prerequisite, along with a desire help yourself and others to the digital fore of the field.

Helping your field need not be so highfalutin. You can also help H-Peace-and-Conflict, provide service to the field, and build new skills by managing the flow of posts and book reviews on the site, establishing an H-Peace-and-Conflict social media presence, and working with a team to develop new ideas. H-Peace has been too peaceful, so those who take it up will find a blank slate and a ready made and eagar audience of nearly 600 scholars and practitioners.

Please send inquires from individuals, departments, or other organizations to Patrick Cox at vp-net@mail.h-net.msu.edu and we can talk more about what we can do.
