Call for Contributors: Encyclopedia of Religion and War and the Encyclopedia of Religious Rituals
Berkshire Publishing Group is seeking scholars and other experts who can write an article or two for a general audience for the upcoming volumes of the Religion and Society series. The Encyclopedia of Religion and War and the Encyclopedia of Religious Rituals will be the fifth and sixth volumes in the Berkshire/Routledge series. The three previous volumes, the Encyclopedia of Millennialism and Millennial Movements, the Encyclopedia of African and African-American Religions, and the Encyclopedia of Fundamentalism have been well received for their outstanding quality and clear, readable explanations. (Library Journal, January 2002).
The next three volumes on Religious Freedom, War, and Rituals are now being prepared and will be published by Routledge in 2003. The Freedom volume (edited by Catherine Cookson, Center for the Study of Religious Freedom, Virginia Wesleyan College) is nearing completion while we are still in the contributor recruitment stage for War (edited by Gabriel Palmer-Fernandez, Youngstown State University) and Rituals (edited by Frank Salamone, Iona College).
You can find out more about each of the projects by visiting the author websites.
