Thanks to a late withdrawal I am looking for a scholar to write a chapter of 8000 words (including references ) on the concept of race in historical writing for a book on history and theory. The book is already contracted to a major publisher. It is aimed mainly at undergraduate students taking compulsory history and theory courses in the UK and at postgraduate students in the US, and so must be written in a clear and accessible style. It is expected, neverthless, that the chapter will make a significant contribution to the academic debate.
The chapter will explain and discuss the place of race in historical works of the late nineteenth and early twentieth century but will largely focus on more recent historical treatments of the subject. A particular feature of the book is that the influence of theory upon practical historical writing will be examined through the discussion of at least two extended examples.
If you are interested in writing this chapter please contact me for further details. I will require an abstract of up to 1000 words by 20 July 2002 and the completed chapter must be submitted by October 2002.
