This is a request for proposals for contributions to Readings In Gendered Context, edited by Phil Backlund and Mary Rose Williams to be published by Wadsworth.
We are soliciting proposals for articles to be included in a new reader in gender communication to be published by Wadsworth in the Fall of 2002. The central goal of Readings in Gendered Contexts is to assist in the education of students. Thus, an emphasis will be placed on helping students understand the importance of what s/he might learn from each selection about gender and gender communication.
Thought-provoking, entertaining, serious, amusing, stretching, and informative articles would characterize Readings in Gendered Contexts. Unlike other readers, whose selections come primarily from scholarly publications and academic authors, Readings in Gendered Contexts will include selections drawn from scholarly press, popular press, and commissioned articles. Please see the overview of the Table of Contents at the end of this solicitation.
We invite you to submit a 1-2 page proposal in any of the areas listed in our table of contents. As editors, we want the reader to cover certain topics, and we would like them covered with specific goals as described below.
In conceiving an article, we would like potential authors to think about and move in the direction of including the following criteria:
Length: approximately, 2- 15 doublespaced pages
Schedule: March 15, 2000, one to two page proposal to editors
April 1, 2000, notification of editors decision
July 1, 2000, first draft
For further information about each of the sections in the Table of Contents please contact Phil Backlund at firstname.lastname@example.org or call 509-963-1852
