Reasons for historians to be in H-Net

If you aren't already familiar with H-Net, why not?

Here are just a few interesting things in my H-Net discussion list mailbags lately.

From H-Atlantic, for Atlantic world history c.1500-1800:

Review of The Mapmaker's Quest: Depicting New Worlds in Renaissance Europe

Review of Sources and Methods in African History: Spoken, Written, Unearthed

From H-Albion, for British and Irish history:

A discussion thread on the shortcomings of current textbook histories of 20th-century Britain (starts here)

From H-Teach, for teaching college history:

Threads on the issue of the teacher's politics in the class room and on alternative learning styles (which has sparked a sometimes heated argument about the quality of history education in high schools vs. universities): for either, start from the message logs page for November here

There are many, many more discussion lists: something for everyone. Not to mention announcements of CFPs, conferences, etc and Job listings.

[Added by Nathanael:] If you are looking for H-France, don't go to the H-Net website at Michigan State, but to this website at University of Akron.
