Subject: Announcing H-London: History of London List
Announcing New History of London Mailing List
H-London is a new, multidisciplinary mailing list for scholars,
students, researchers, and serious travelers working on various facets
of the history of London, England. Our aim is to draw together scholars
whose work touches on London and to bring in as many differing
viewpoints as possible. The goal -- to foster communication and
information exchange on *everything* related to this particular region.
Examples of encouraged topics: "straight" history, literature, streets
and buildings, maps, court studies, housewifery, culinary history,
historic costuming, period music, pageantry, discussion of various eras
and personages that were active or influential in London and the home
counties...the list goes on (see Disraeli quotation at the bottom).
Ideally with this mix we will be able to flesh out the details of life
and commerce in London through the millennia.
Unfortunately we are not at this time able to answer genealogical
queries and will not likely be able to give specific details about
relatively unknown personages. In the future a geneaology query message
board will be available on our website to facilitate this type of
this information: your name, email address, location in the world,
institutional affiliation (if relevant), publications (if relevant), and
brief description of your interest in the history of London--especially
any past or current research interest. Or feel free to contact that
address if you have any questions about the list itself.
"London: a nation, not a city."
--Benjamin Disraeli, 'Lothair'
