H-Net Celebrates 20 Years at MSU


H-Net: Humanities & Social Sciences Online is an international scholarly organization of over 180 different scholarly networks edited by specialists all over the world and with its computing center at Michigan State University.

H-Net provides valuable scholarly services like academic job listings on the Job Guide; an academic announcement service; listings of recently published academic titles on the Book Channel; scholarly book reviews, and discussion and resources targeted to a wide range of academic subjects on individual H-Net networks.

H-Net was founded in 1993 and has been at Michigan State University since 1997. In 2012, the individual listservs moved to a central Commons run on a Drupal-based content management system that helps subscribers and editors to publish increasingly complex and creative digital projects, and readers to navigate content across networks.

The H-Net home office is comprised of Executive Director Peter Knupfer, Associate Directors Jesse Draper and Yelena Kalinsky, and Systems Administrator Dennis Boone. We employ six MSU undergraduates and two Graduate Assistants from the History Department who help with developing new features, functionalities, and creative vision.
