Encyclopedia of American Immigration - Contributors Needed
CALL FOR CONTRIBUTORS: ENCYCLOPEDIA OF AMERICAN IMMIGRATION
We are looking for contributors for the 2,000-page, four-volume, illustrated Encyclopedia of American Immigration (EAI), to be published by M.E. Sharpe in the fall of 2000. Comprehensive in scope and written by top scholars in the field, the EAI will be the definitive reference work on immigration for years to come. Among our board of advisors are Nancy Foner (SUNY Purchase), Hector Cordero-Guzman (New School), Ruben Rumbaut (Michigan State), and Nazli Kibria (Boston).
The encyclopedia is divided into four parts: IMMIGRATION HISTORY, immigration issues, immigration groups (ethnic/regional), and immigration (original) documents. Articles run between 8 and 30 manuscript pages in length, depending on subject.
All entries will be signed and all writers will be listed on contributor page. Small stipends will also be paid. Contributors may write any number of entries. The deadlines for materials range from December 15, 1999 through March 15, 2000, depending on length of entry and the contributor's own schedule.
If you cannot contribute, perhaps you can forward names and email addresses of scholars (including graduate students) who would be interested.
We can email a prospectus with a full description of the project, including a list of entries still available.
