We seek essays for an anthology on women who publicly helped to shape the "long decade" of the 1960s in the U.S. We welcome original pieces on figures active culturally, artistically, or at the nexus of culture and politics. The collection will focus on women who might or might not have defined themselves as feminists, but who contributed in significant ways to American culture and to the politicization of that culture. Categories of "culture" might include (but are by no means limited to): music, visual arts, theater, film, photography, television, literature and literary criticism, poetry, sports, dance, journalism, religion. An incomplete list of women to write about might include: Maya Angelou, Joan Baez, Rita Mae Brown, Cher, Judy Chicago, Judy Collins, Angela de Hoyos, Jane Fonda, Aretha Franklin, Nikki Giovanni, Judith Jamison, Janis Joplin, Billie Jean King, Carole King, Miriam Makeba, Joni Mitchell, Robin Morgan, Pauline Oliveros, Yoko Ono, Adrienne Rich, Buffy Sainte-Marie, Sonya Sanchez, Carly Simon, Susan Sontag, Twyla Tharpe, Joan Tower, Tina Turner, Alice Walker, and others.
Please send queries, proposals, or submissions (of no more than 25 pages) by January 15, 2002.
