NYU Press is soliciting contributions for a proposed interdisciplinary, multi-national anthology of original essays about children and war, from the early 19th century up to the present. Contributions are encouraged from all disciplines, including history, psychology, sociology, military studies, anthropology, and political science, as well as from children's activists and policy makers. Essays may address, among other topics: children's participation in warfare, both on the battlefield and on the home front; the effects of war on children's institutions and family life; and the representation of armed conflict in children's play and literature. "War" will be defined broadly, including, for instance, the Cold War, terrorist operations, and "low level" conflicts. Each essay should be between 6-8000 words.
The deadline is March 31, 2000. Interested scholars should send their one-page proposals, along with brief c.v.'s, directly to the editor of the proposed anthology, James Marten, at History Department, Marquette University.
They may also be e-mailed to him at email@example.com.
Please contact the editor directly if you have any questions.
