H-French-Colonial seeks additional editors and contributors

We’re looking for new members for H-French-Colonial editorial team.

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 French Colonial research interests 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 within French Colonial History, H-French-Colonial has access to full suite of H-Net tools and can help work it into to videos, blogs, articles, podcasts, roundtables, and 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 more is on the way. It’s time to grow H-Net's network on French Colonial History under people with generous natures, minimum tech competence, and a true desire to advance the field with valuable digital resources. We provide training and support in using all of our tools.

Helping your field need not be so highfalutin. You can also help H-French-Colonial, provide service to the field, and build new skills by maintaining the flow of subscriber posts and book reviews on the site, managing the social media feeds, and working with a team to develop new ideas.  We're especially interested in contributors and editors with research emphases in French colonial history in Canada, Asia, Africa, and decolonization that wish to focus on particular projects, such as a podcast, a solo or multi-authored blog, bibliographies, or course materials repository, or leading a discussion series on specific topics of their interest. Of course, we are open to many types of projects on all aspects and geographies with French Colonialism.

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.
