Calls for Review Editors

Call for Review Editors for H-Women

H-Women, H-Net's network for women's history, seeks to recruit an energetic team of editors to help revive the reviews program for one of H-Net's largest networks. H-Net Reviews has built a strong reputation for scholarly reviews over the last twenty years, taking advantage of the flexibility and relative speed of online publication while maintaining the highest scholarly standards.

Re: H-Histsex Seeks Additional Review Editors

Hello,

Just to clarify Yelena’s message. My area of expertise is modern history of sexuality, in particular modern European history of sexuality (https://networks.h-net.org/users/chiara-beccalossi). H-histsex is searching for review editors who would complement my expertise; in particular it would be great if an early modern historian would be happy to join the H-histsex team.

H-Histsex Seeks Additional Review Editors

H-Histsex, the H-Net network dedicated to the history of sexuality, seeks one or two additional review editors to broaden and expand its reviews program, currently led by Dr. Chiara Beccalossi, a specialist of early modern history. The network has been publishing reviews for over 10 years and has great potential to grow.
