Dear H-Net subscribers and readers,

H-Net is uniquely poised in the online academic world in a way that other sites and outlets simply can't match. It isn't just H-Net's new publishing platform that makes that the case. In the past two years 280 new editors have joined H-Net. That's 280 scholars, researchers,
and teachers who have seen the potential of the H-Net Commons, gotten involved to help develop it, and are providing service to their fields by building resources and developing meaningful content with and for their peers.

Call for panelists: 2017 Berkshire Conference panel on sexual violence

Dear all,


I am interested in organizing or joining a panel on sexual violence and consent for the 2017 Berkshire Conference of Women Historians at Hofstra University.  My work is on consent and the early American understanding of rape in New England.  I am particularly interested in how religion and religious culture constructed gendered consent as it was popularly understood and practiced in and out of a courtroom.  

Looking Toward H-Net's Future

Dear H-Net Readers and Subscribers:

Over ten years ago, the H-Net Council passed a Strategic Plan for H-Net that envisioned what became the Commons.  H-Net would “implement an enterprise-wide content management system that encourages information sharing in a protected networked environment monitored by field experts” and “Plan for migration of content delivery technologies to web-based formats for editing, publication, and service.”
