My name is Eric Covey and I will be joining Katharina Donn as a Review Editor at H-Amstdy. I am a Visiting Assistant Professor of American Studies in the Department of Global and Intercultural Studies at Miami University in Ohio. Broadly, my research and teaching focus on US Imperialism in Africa and the Middle East, historical foodways of the Atlantic world, and the queer dimensions of care for the elderly and infirm in nineteenth-century America. My current manuscript project, Americans at War in the Ottoman Empire: US Mercenary Force in the Middle East, will be published by I.B.Tauris in 2017.
Like Katharina, I am interested in growing our list of potential reviewers. This will be the first time in many years that H-Amstdy has undertaken a review process of its own. And at a vital moment in the history of the field, especially in terms of its practice in a variety of international cotexts, I see the reviews section of H-Amstdy contributing to some very interesting conversations. If you're interested in being a part of these conversations by serving as a reviewer, please send your vitae and a statement of interest to myself, firstname.lastname@example.org, or Katharina, email@example.com. For more information about what reviewing entails, please consult the H-Net Guidelines and Standards.
