New Editors Sought for H-Early-America

H-Net Vice President of Networks's picture

We’re looking for a new team to take over H-Early-America.

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 Early American 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 in the Vast Early Americas, H-Early-America will have access to full suite of H-Net tools and can help work it into to videos, blogs, articles, podcasts, roundtables, book reviews…

In the past year, H-Net has expanded it’s podcasting repertoire, begun it’s first open access peer reviewed journal, built new interactive capabilities, and more is on the way. It’s time to get H-Net's network on the Early Americas on board 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-Early-America, 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. H-Early-America is blank slate, so opportunities abound!

All Early American research areas are welcome and we can help work them up into digital features, from PDF's to podcasts. We’d be excited to work with folks with interests in areas that lend themselves to our audio and visual capabilities, such as the following: 

  • Early American literature, music, and other arts.
  • Archeology of the Early Americas
  • Material Culture
  • Maps
  • Food Studies

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.
