H-War is a moderated electronic discussion group and bulletin board for scholars, librarians, and teachers in the field of military history and is part of the H-Net family of LISTSERV discussion lists. We encourage discussions and announcements concerned with any subspecialty or era of military history, but especially those that may provide opportunities for comparative and general perspectives on the entire field.
The primary purpose of H-War is to provide a forum for military historians and other scholars to communicate openly. In this light, H-War will focus particularly on research and teaching interests, new scholarship in the field, discussions of military historiography that foster critical thinking and enhance professionalism, and the sharing of knowledge and experience about the teaching of military history, including posting and discussion of course syllabi and reading lists. In addition, H-War welcomes announcements from scholarly and professional societies or other organizations about their journals, conferences, fellowships, and funding opportunities. We also encourage organizers of conferences to send calls for papers and program contents and graduate students to post abstracts of their doctoral dissertations and research papers. H-War is also an appropriate forum for information on bibliographic and archival sources, as well as reports on new software, datasets or CD-ROMS relevant to military history.
H-War is maintained by an editorial board of international scholars in the field. Subscription to H-War is free and open to professional researchers and instructors in military history or allied fields and to other participants concerned with serious scholarship in the field. When you send in a subscription request, the editors will send you a brief questionnaire; it must be completed and returned to confirm your subscription. The information requested in this form tells us about your professional interests and activities in military history and will serve as a directory of H-War members.
