ANNOUNCING H-Southern-Industry: H-Net Network on the History and Culture of Industrialization in the American South

Sponsored by H-Net, Humanities & Social Sciences On-line and the Southern Industrialization Project.

ABOUT H-Southern-Industry

The purpose of H-Southern-Industry is to transfer an existing, successful academic discussion list of the Southern Industrialization Project (SIP) from a listserv operating out of Georgia Tech. SIP List began in January 1997 and currently has approximately 130 members from around the world who are interested in exchanging ideas and data about Southern industrialization. The list also serves to distribute announcements about SIP events as well as book reviews solicited by SIP. It also frequently distributes pertinent posts found on other lists. This list attracts members from, but also fills a niche outside the general interests of, those who subscribe to H-South, H-SAWH, H-Labor, H-Business, and other lists. It has two specific parameters that define its raison d’etre: the terms “Southern” and “Industrialization” both of which are defined broadly. We are only interested in discussions that meet at the intersection of those two terms.

The H-Southern-Industry list is co-edited by Steven A. Reich <[email protected]> James Madison University, Michael Gagnon <>, and Stephen W. Taylor <[email protected]> Macon State College.

Like all H-Net lists, H-Southern-Industry is moderated to edit out material that, in the editors’ opinion, is not germane to the list, involves technical matters (such as subscription management requests), is inflammatory, or violates evolving, yet common, standards of Internet etiquette. H-Net’s procedure for resolving disputes over list editorial practices is Article II, Section 2.20 of our bylaws, located at:
