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.

If you are interested in the role please email Yelena Kalinsky: yelena@mail.h-net.msu.edu
