H-SAWH is an international electronic discussion group for scholars and teachers interested in the history of women and gender in the southern U.S. This list is intended to provide historians and others interested in the field a forum to discuss new (and old) theories, methods, and findings. We anticipate that discussions and announcements of a more general nature will also provide opportunities for comparative perspectives on contemporary issues in light of historical experiences.
H-SAWH is one of the networks of H-Net and Michigan State University, made possible with additional funding from the National Endowment for the Humanities and the American Council of Learned Societies. H-Net is a broad initiative to establish electronic communications among historians and to educate historians and other scholars in the use of electronic media. H-Net has been endorsed by the American Historical Association, the Organization of American Historians and the Southern Historical Association.
The primary purpose of H-SAWH is to enable historians and other population scholars to easily communicate current research and teaching interests; to discuss new articles, books, papers, approaches, methods and tools of analysis; to test new ideas and share comments and tips on teaching. Relevant extracts from the H-Net Job Guide will be posted, as will fellowship announcements, etc. Organizers of pertinent conferences and symposia are encouraged to post calls for papers and program contents. H-SAWH will attempt to stimulate dialogues on teaching historical demography through publication of course syllabi and reading lists, course handouts, bibliographies or guides to term papers. H-SAWH is also part of the H-Net Review Project. The H-SAWH review editor is Antonette van Zelm firstname.lastname@example.org

H-SAWH is a moderated list. Your postings will be collected by one of the editors and posted to the list generally on a daily basis. This process filters extraneous materials (such as subscription requests) and/or posts which are irrelevant or inappropriate to H-SAWH. No editing of posts will normally be done except as follows or to add name/address headers or subject lines if needed. Lengthy documents over approximately 100 lines should be prefaced with a short abstract (about 10 lines). Long postings frequently use up subscribers' available disk space and are time-consuming to page through. Therefore the editors, at the request of the posting party or at their own discretion, may archive the full text on the H-SAWH listserv, posting only the abstract and providing subscribers with instructions on how to access the full text electronically using the GET command.
