To improve communications between sports historians and other sport scholars, ISHPES established an e-mail network of sports scholars. This network was originally called SPORTHIST and was renamed H-Sport when it moved to H-Net, the Humanities and Social Sciences Online Network (www.h-net.org)
Anyone interested in sport history, sociology, philosophy, or other socio-cultural studies can subscribe to H-Sport. Membership in ISHPES is not necessary and subscription is free. Network subscribers are able to submit and receive information and announcements to and from colleagues throughout the world. H-Sport has also established several resources, including a quarterly Journal Watch for academic articles published about sport, an Archive Project which highlights archival collections of interest to sport scholars, and a Teaching Initiative which includes course syllabi.
Junior Scholars are encouraged to submit their name and project title to the Thesis & Dissertations in Progress list, maintained on H-Sport. H-Sport also announces new books published on sport each quarter, and ISHPES members are encouraged to share their books with the H-Sport community.
Because H-Sport is part of H-Net, announcements can be submitted to all of lists managed by H-Net, reaching tens of thousands of scholars.
If you wish to subscribe to H-Sport, you can do so here.
