Dear H-Migration,

I hope this message finds you all well, and that you have discovered relevant content here on H-Migration to help you in your teaching, research, and public engagement over the years. I'm writing today to announce H-Migration's annual recruitment drive; I am hoping to add two new editors to our editorial team starting in Summer 2020

H-Migration editors work together to moderate H-Migration's biweekly postings, engage with subscribers, and develop new creative work (as desired) in the Commons. At present, we have 3,300 subscribers and an active Twitter account, making our list a powerful dissemination tool for announcements, CFPs, etc. We do not yet publish reading roundups, book reviews, or pedagogical discussions, but with a larger team I would like to expand in those directions.

If you would like to get involved at H-Migration, please have a look at the list's Commons website at this link, to get a sense of what we do: https://networks.h-net.org/h-migration

Candidates should have a Ph.D. (or be close to obtaining one) in a migration subfield, and be prepared to commit to a four-year term. Those who are interested in enhancing H-Migration's offerings through creative means (for instance, by creating an archive of teaching resources; uploading/annotating media; monitoring journals) are especially encouraged. New editors must undergo a brief H-Net training session, and will work within a regular schedule with team members. 

If you are interested in joining H-Migration as an editor, please contact me at sfahrenthold@ucdavis.edu with a brief statement of interest and biography.cv. I am happy to answer any questions and will accept self-nominations until July 1, 2020. Thank you for subscribing, and I look forward to building on our list's successes!

Best wishes,

Stacy Fahrenthold
