I am seeking additional articles on suicide in early America (to 1877)
(and Britain) for an upcoming volume from Routledge Press. I currently
have pieces on immigrant suicide in antebellum American cities, servant
suicide in seventeenth-century Anglo-America, suicide in the novels of
Charles Brockden Brown, and comparative rates of suicide in Northern
and Southern communities in the 1840s (among others). At this point,
however, I need three to five more articles for a viable collection.
Routledge has agreed to bring the volume out in paper as well as
hardback to encourage readership. I am very pleased with the efforts
they have put into marketing the volume I have just completed for them
on domestic violence in early America, and believe that a collection on
suicide, an understudied subject, particularly in early American
history, will receive considerable attention.
I would very much like to be able to add a comparative dimension to
this volume on suicide in Great Britain (or her empire (s) ) during the
seventeenth, eighteenth and early nineteenth centuries, if possible.
Routledge, of course, also has a marketing presence in Great Britain.
I anticipate delivering the completed ms. to the press by August 1, 2000.
If you would like to propose an essay for such a collection, please
contact Christine Daniels at firstname.lastname@example.org. Or send a
proposal and a cv to me at: Dept. of History, Michigan State
University, 301 Morrill Hall, East Lansing, Michigan 48824-1036. Or
call: (517) 432-3536.
