DEADLINE EXTENDED [AUGUST 10TH]: H-Business seeks new editor

H-Business seeks new editor


H-Business is looking for a new Network Editor-in-Chief. H-Business is the digital network for the Business History Conference, an international organization devoted to the study of business enterprise and organization and of all aspects of the interactions of business with society, government, and culture in a historical context. H-Business provides a forum for subscribers to exchange inquiries about their research, share news of archival holdings, post notices and programs of meetings, discuss issues relevant to the study of business history, and participate in H-Net Reviews.

The new editor can reside in any country, but must be a member of the BHC. The editor will serve for a three-year term (with potential for renewal), to begin in late summer or early fall of 2020. No previous experience or technical knowledge is necessary; H-NET will train you how to use its content management system.  This is an uncompensated position.  The editor is appointed by the BHC Trustees on the recommendation of the Electronic Media Oversight Committee.


The editor will moderate posts from the list-serv’s membership, which includes announcements, calls for papers, job postings, fellowship / research opportunities, and discussions. The editor may also develop new features to engage the membership. The editor will approve new subscriptions and manage routine inquiries. Per the H-Net Commons bylaws, the Network editor is responsible for screening out material that, in the editor's opinion, is not germane to the network mission, is inflammatory, or violates evolving, yet common, standards of Internet etiquette.

Each year, the editor will make a written report to the EMOC of the network’s activities in a timely fashion prior to the Trustees’ annual meeting.

How to Apply

Applications for the H-Business editor position should be submitted via email to Anne Fleming, Chair, Electronic Media Oversight Committee, at anne.fleming AT by August 10th, 2020. Please send a cover letter that outlines your qualifications and interest in the position, together with a CV or resume. If you have questions, contact Anne at the above email address.

Industries as different as tourism, retail, and manufacturing were plunged into disarray by travel restrictions, broken supply chains, and quarantines. The pandemic also underscored the growing dangers posed by economic inequality and environmental degradation, hinting at a more tumultuous future.
