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.”

Seeking Panel for Policy History Conference 2016

Dear Fellow Historians, I am a newly minted PhD currently writing a paper for the Journal of Policy History Conference 2016 in Nashville on the influence of Adlai Stevenson 's foreign policy ideas and advocacy on the 1960s. This paper will also show the importance of the 1956 election. The paper will fit the following panels:

  • Foreign policy formation in the 1950s and 1960s

  • Second look at landslide elections

  • party politics in election years

  • modern Democratic party politics

  • modern American liberalism

Call for Panelist- Abuse of Governmental Power (Conference on Policy History, June 2016)

My name is Michael Koncewicz and I'm a recent PhD from UC Irvine who now works at the Tamiment Library and NYU's Center for the United States and the Cold War. My research deals with the moderate Republicans who said no to President Nixon's unethical orders. I'm interested in putting together a panel that will focus on the larger theme of abuse of governmental power for the Conference on Policy History in June 2016 (Nashville). However, I'm fairly flexible when it comes to adjusting the theme of the panel to incorporate a range of papers.
