Reminder: H-Slavery's Topical Guides

Dear Subscribers, 

Just a quick reminder about our series of topical guides--concise bibliographic essays covering scholarship on slavery. These receive oversight from our editors and go through a process of open review. Because they go directly to our subscribers' inboxes and are published open access, they tend to have a wide readership. A fuller description and past examples are here: https://networks.h-net.org/node/11465/pages/118519/topical-guides. Graduate students welcomed. 

Kind Regards,
