Announcing H-Postal-History

H-Net proudly welcomes H-Postal-History to its family of nearly 200 networks, now available on the H-Net Commons. Read on and follow the links below for more information about these exciting new networks!


H-Postal-History exists to encourage the cross-fertilization of different approaches to, and understandings of, postal history, particularly between academics and philatelic researchers and writers. It provides a community and a platform for the exchange of ideas and of information regarding publications, projects, events, and private and public collections available to researchers. The intended audience includes scholars, graduate students, and independent researchers studying postal history, of any time and place, including postal logistics, infrastructure, networks, and technology, as well as the mail.
