H-Law Seeks New Editor(s)

We have the following announcement.]

H-Law seeks a new list editor (or editors) to take control of H-Law.  H-Law is a collaborative and growing network focused on the scholarly pursuit of legal and constitutional history broadly conceived.  It has a thriving book review program and podcasts.  List editors moderate the discussions, assist subscribers, and help build content on the network, working in concert with each other and with the H-Law Advisory Board. Applicants can be of any rank, but should be ABD (all but dissertation) or above (Ph. D. or J.D.).  They must be approved by the H-Law Advisory Board, and then the H-Net Executive Council.  They will serve for a two year term (with potential for renewal).

No previous experience is necessary--H-NET will train you. Editing the list is a good way to keep on top of what is happening in our field, and it provides opportunities for national service to the profession for tenure and/or promotion.
