H-Net, an international consortium of scholars and teachers that creates and coordinates more than 180 Internet networks to advance teaching and research in the arts, humanities, and social sciences, seeks a volunteer, unpaid editor of its online network, H-Democracy. Founded in July 2005, H-Democracy has over 300 subscribers in 39 countries. The volunteer editor will join the corps of editors at H-Net who manage and edit discussion networks. The basic responsibilities of the editor are to manage, edit, and support the network by moderating discussions, listing postings, soliciting and commissioning contributions, and dealing with discussion list logistics. The mission of the network is to spread information concerning conferences, book projects, and calls for papers; to create common conversations uniting disparate research and practitioner communities within the field; and to foster discussion of best practices and lessons learned.
H-Net is committed to pioneering the use of new communication technology to facilitate the free exchange of academic ideas and scholarly resources.
