Discussion Networks Reviews Job Guide Announcements

Welcome to H-HistMajor

H-HISTMAJOR is a moderated internet discussion forum of, by, and for undergraduate history majors. It is a place where undergraduate interests and concerns can be addressed as the primary topics rather than subtopics of professorial interests, such as curriculum or academic legitimacy. These interests can include information about graduate programs, conferences for undergrads, jobs for BAs in history, research topics, international networking, relations with faculty advisors and mentors, and whatever else concerns undergrads. In other words, a list where undergrads determine the agenda. Subscriptions will only be confirmed with a completed subscriber's survey. As with any edited list, all postings will be made at the discretion of the on-duty editor. The list logs are available on the World Wide Web, linked through H-Net's web site.

The H-HISTMAJOR list is co-edited by rotating teams of undergraduates with faculty sponsors. Five to six history professors at different institutions will each mentor a student at their institutions, and the faculty sponsors will also be subscribers to the list. Faculty sponsors give advice, counsel, training, support, ideas, and situational backup editing, but they will *not* try to control the list. Undergraduate editors will seek out accurate information, exclude urban legends and other Internet garbage, check out rumors before posting them, and contact faculty for help as needed.
