We’re looking for new members to join the H-HistSex 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 your research interests are in History of Sexuality 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 Sexuality Studies, H-HistSex has access to full suite of H-Net tools and can help work it into to videos, blogs, articles, podcasts, roundtables, book reviews, and more.

In the past year, H-Net has expanded its podcasting repertoire, begun its first open access peer reviewed journal, built new interactive capabilities, begun new essay series, and more is on the way. It’s time to grow H-Net's network on History of Sexuality under people with generous natures, a bit of 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-HistSex, 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 researchers 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 of the field.

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.
