Dear H-Canada Subscribers,
H-Canada is looking to expand its team of volunteer editors in the coming weeks. H-Canada is one of the 180 topically-defined networks that form the core of H-Net: Humanities and Social Sciences Online, a non-profit scholarly organization defined by its commitment to academic best practices. H-Canada constitutes a dynamic online forum with the ability to produce diverse kinds of content, including blog posts, essays, GIS-indexed maps, timelines, book reviews, and more! For this round of recruitment, we are particularly interested in the following positions, although scholars should always feel welcomed to reach out to me for an informal conversation. We offer excellent ways for scholars of all ranks to gain experience, shape our field of study, and develop their professional profiles.
A. Social Media Editor: we are looking for an editor, or editors, who can launch and manage a Twitter account affiliated with our network and produce a series of updates to our subscribers based on informed conversation circulating on the web. H-Net can provide guidance and references to similar projects at other networks.
B. Resources Editor: we are looking for an editor, or editors, who can help compile information about key resources in our field of study into an easy-to-browse, permanent webpage. This can include information about archives, journals, graduate programs, digital projects and more. As with the Social Media Editor position, H-Net can provide guidance and references to similar projects.
If interested in volunteering, please send me (firstname.lastname@example.org): 1) 200 words about your expertise, how you envision contributing, and a pragmatic assessment of your availability; and 2) a current C.V. by November 18, 2019. Please also be prepared to provide a reference upon request.
Amy Poole, Web Editor for H-Canada
