Become a member of Historical Network Research!

The Historical Network Research Community has long been a loosely defined constellation. It now seems time to transition to a clearer model: without yet planning to create a full-fledged association, the current coordinators believe that the organization’s board should be elected by the members in the near future. Today, however, there are no HNR members…

Membership system

For the time being, we want to keep things simple, while at the same time having a clear list of people who want to be able to express their opinions on the major decisions to be taken over the next few years, run for the board, etc. From now on, we’ll consider HNR members to be anyone who is registered in HNR Slack

It’s a simple infrastructure that also allows us to create small discussion communities, organize tasks and so on. This doesn’t mean that members have to be permanently logged into Slack, nor that they have to be active there; the main communications will be made directly by email (to the address given when registering for Slack). But with all our communication channels (the site, newsletter, social media, etc.), it’s good that we make it clear that it’s your Slack subscription that means you’ll receive “official” communications from time to time.

People who are already on HNR Slack and who would not like to be considered full members of our community are of course free to leave the platform.
