Decommissioning H-Shukyo

On February 21, 2017, H-Net Council voted to de-commission H-Shukyo. The network has been largely unused and ran without editors for an extended period of time. Attempts to find new ones did not work out. Rather than continuing attempts to revive an unused network, we suggest H-Shukyo’s 311 subscribers join our much larger and active networks in related fields.
