Call for Essays: Southern Indusrialization Project Book Series
Call for Papers Deadline:
The Southern Industrialization Project, an organization founded in 1996 to foster a greater understanding of the history and culture of industrialization in the American South, is promoting the publication of a series of volumes, New Directions in the History of Southern Economy, with the University of Missouri Press. The first volume, Global Perspectives on Industrial Transformation in the American South, is meant to establish the innovative theoretical and methodological approaches which will inform the whole series and, as such, will be devoted to comparative themes aimed at placing the Southern industrial experience, from the antebellum days to the present, in non-traditional contexts, including the international one.
The editors of the series, Susanna Delfino (University of Genoa, Italy) and Michele Gillespie (Wake Forest University, USA), will be glad to consider proposals for essays to be included with this first volume. Comparisons may regard other US realities (either western or northeastern) as well as foreign countries and be focused on any chosen time period starting from the antebellum era.
Proposals of no more than two pages should be sent to both editors via e-mail by November 20, 2002 along with a short vita of the author. Final essays, which should not exceed 30 double-spaced pages of 26 lines including endnotes, will be due by February 15, 2003.
