Announcing the new Resources tab

Greetings H-Net subscribers!

We are pleased to announce the release of the Resources tab, which is now located at the top of all of our Networks. Prior to the release, there was a Media tab that chronologically aggregated all of the contributions uploaded to a particular Network. While the Media tab clearly had some basic archival value, with the development of many diverse projects making use of this material on our Networks, editors asked for a better way to organize that content. The Resources tab is the fruit of those aims.

Thank you, From H-Net

Dear H-Net Readers:

As our fall appeal comes to a close, all of us at H-Net wish to express our heartfelt thanks to the many readers who have contributed during the past few weeks.  Your gifts go directly to our program services, helping us to staff our help desk, make improvements to our web resources, and develop new features that leverage the tremendous talent pool of our hundreds of volunteer editors.

CFP: Climate Change and Policy

Last month, I issued a CFP (see original below) for a special issue of the Marine Corps University Journal, focusing on climate change and policy. We have accepted several proposals for papers from well-established, published authors, but we are still looking for a few articles covering different aspects of the issue. Specifically, I am very interested in acquiring a political science perspective on climate change denial and partisan politics, a scientific perspective on realistic policy changes, and economic perspective (domestic or foreign).

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.

Panel Search: Policy History Conference Panel on Bilingualism and Urban Politics

I am looking to put together a panel on bilingualism and urban politics in American history for the 2016 Policy History Conference.  My own work focuses on the Cuban community in Miami and I plan to present on the politics surrounding the 1973 bilingual ordinance in Dade County.  I would like to gather two or three papers on bilingualism in the United States.  Ideally this panel would seek to go beyond just English-Spanish bilingualism, but I am open to alter the panel as needed.
