Organisation and management
Jon Nichol, Hilary Cooper and Michael Mitchell run HEIRNET: Jon oversees the annual conference, Hilary publications and Michael looks after the monies.
Concerning the future, as members of a gerontocracy, we are in the process of establishing a permanent HEIRNET committee of younger, active and supportive colleagues who in turn will take over HEIRNET when we fade gracefully, or otherwise, from the scene.
The HEIRNET website A key element in managing HEIRNET is our permanent website www.heirnetonline.com that we established last year – before it was an annual phenomenon linked to our conference, emerging phoenix like each autumn from the ashes of the previous conference. A permanent website enables us to oversee the annual conference, a range of HEIRNET publications and provide news, information and discourse via Social Media to ensure and develop HEIRNET as an international forum for history educators discourse on History Education research and developments.
