Dear Reader,

(including all its subsidiary (and/or sister) pages on "coombs.anu.edu.au" server) has permanently ceased its publishing operations on Friday 21st January 2011.

All of the online resources reported here have been thoroughly checked at the time of their listing. However, it is possible that, with the with the passage of time, many of the originally reported materials might have been removed from the Internet, or changed their online address, or varied the scope and quality of their contents.

Fortunately, in several cases it is possible to access many of the older versions of the resources listed in the MONITOR. This can be easily done via the free services of the "The Internet Archive" http://web.archive.org/, a remarkable brainchild of Brewster Kahle, San Francisco, CA.

- with warm regards -

H-Asia Discussion List - 12th Anniversary


01 Apr 2006

H-Net: Humanities and Social Sciences OnLine, Michigan State University, US

"The primary purpose of H-ASIA is to enable historians and other Asia scholars to easily communicate current research and teaching interests; to discuss new articles, books, papers, approaches, methods and tools of analysis; to test new ideas and share comments and tips on teaching. H-Asia is especially committed to discussing region wide, comparative and professional issues important to scholars of Asia."

Site contents:
* General Information: (Subscribe!, Manage Subscription, Subscription Help, About H-Asia, Welcome Message Editors & Board); * H-Asia Resources (Discussion Logs, Discussion Threads, Resources, Links, Electronic Journals, KIAPS); * Related Lists: (H-Japan, H-USJapan, H-ANZAU, H-SEASIA); * Search H-Asia Logs; *Search all H-Net Logs; * Recent Book Reviews published by H-Asia; * Recent messages posted by H-Asia.

Supplied note:
"H-ASIA is twelve years old! Editors, volunteers and other H-ASIA News. From: Frank Conlon. Members of H-ASIA may be interested to know that this project commenced in a formal way on April 1, 1994 (the date was accidental not intentional). When Steven Leibo and I launched H-ASIA I don't think either of us could have imagined that it would grow into such an expansive world-wide community. [...] Our membership roster today numbers 3911 in 74 countries. We are not the most active H-Net list, but over the years we have had considerable traffic. As of last night we have handled 26,950 posts. Our model is one followed by all of the constitutent networks of H-Net: volunteer editors who give their time and effort toward sustaining the conversation among members as well as posting announcements of jobs, of conferences and other calls for papers. [...] Long-term members of H-ASIA, particularly outside North America, who would be interested in discussing the possibility of service on the Advisory Board, should contact me at their convenience in the next few weeks. [... There is] the possibility of adding a Book Review editor for East Asia. [...] Interested parties should contact me [i.e. Frank Conlon] with their curriculum vitae. It is necessary that any review editor have a fairly well-developed set of contacts for soliciting reviewers. There are also opportunities for service as line editors (working with me, Ryan Dunch, Kate Brittlebank and Linda Dwyer in a rotation on editing and posting) and for a person willing to alternate with our heroic Subscription Editor Ming-te Pan [...]. As a historical note, our editorial crew began with Steven Leibo and me, Frank Conlon in 1994. Steven retired from the editing in 2004, while I still soldier on--mostly because I really enjoy keeping in touch with what's happening in Asian Studies. In 1996 Marilyn Levine joined us as an editor. Other co-editors included Christiane Reinhold (1997-2001), Richard A. White (1997-2000) and T. Matthew Ciolek (2001-2003). More recently we have been joined by Linda Dwyer (2001- ), Ryan Dunch (2004- ) and Kate Brittlebank (2004- ). And since 1997, Ming-te Pan has presided as Subscriptions Editor. Robert Entenmann served as East Asia Review editor (1997-2003), Patrick Peebles was South Asia Review editor (1997-2000) and we continue to enjoy the contributions of Sumit Guha (South Asia Review Editor since 2001) and William Cummings (Southeast Asia Review Editor since 2005). Remember, we don't do this all by outselves. We have counted on the responsive and helpful advice and maintenance by H-Net officers and staff at Michigan State University where H-Net is hosted by the MSU Matrix project. Without the MSU support there would be no H-ASIA! - f. conlon."

[The list, initially addressing no more than 12 readers, was first conceived and created by Steven A. Leibo of the Sage Colleges & Suny-Albany and Frank F. Conlon of the University of Washington. (See also "Asian Studies Online: a Timeline of Major Developments", coombs.anu.edu.au/asian-studies-timeline.html) The fledgeling H-Asia underwent a series of tests from the 15th of March 1994 onwards, and it went fully public on the 31st March of that year. H-Asia continues to be the single most valuable, most useful and most seminal Asian Studies' resource available on the Net. - tmciolek]
