H-KY editors needed

In Alerts on March 10, 2016 by Randolph Hollingsworth Tagged: , , ,

Celebrating Kentucky’s history and heritage is never more important than today. You can make a difference by joining the staff of H-Kentucky as a contributor and adding your unique perspective to the conversation. H-Kentucky has nearly 400 subscribers and reaches all levels of academia as well as heritage foundations and cultural organizations. Contributions of all types — recurring or on a one-time basis — are welcome.

H-Kentucky is hosted within the H-Net Commons which is ideally suited to publish multimedia projects such as podcasts, peer-reviewed photo or essay series, and image/document collections. We are also looking for H-Kentucky Review Editors to assign reviews of publications with a focus on Kentucky. With a sizable membership and the backing of the H-Net organization, H-Kentucky can crowdsource contributions beyond the limitations of the old listserv.

If you are interested in joining H-Kentucky’s volunteer team of editors, please email us at with a CV and cover letter attached. Please also indicate in your email if there is a specific project or topic you would like to focus on. Graduate students and recent PhDs are welcome to apply – this is a perfect way to provide valuable service to your field and a unique line to your CV.

In your cover letter, please state your reasons for wanting to become an H-Kentucky editor. Your cover letter must also incorporate an acknowledgement of your willingness to assume a two-year commitment and agreement to abide by H-Net’s constitution, bylaws and policies. For more information about the overall process about becoming an editor, visit the H-Net Editors page at
