Colonial America Encylopedia--Article and chronology writers sought
CALL FOR CONTRIBUTORS
An Encyclopedia of Social, Political, Cultural, and Economic History
PLEASE FORWARD TO ALL FACULTY MEMBERS AND GRADUATE STUDENTS
M.E. Sharpe, a New York-based academic and reference publisher, and East River Books, a reference book producer, are seeking contributing scholars for a four-volume reference work on the colonial era of North American history. The project is aimed at the academic high school and undergraduate levels. The General Editor is Dr. James Ciment, editor of the award-winning Encyclopedia of American Immigration.
The encyclopedia will include articles on:
politics and government
economy, labor, and business
religion and education
technology, science, and the environment
arts and culture
There will be entries on individuals, places, ideas, events, institutions, and general themes. Articles will vary in length from 750-2,500 (depending on significance of topic). Colonial America will also include a number of ancillary features, including chronologies, bibliographies (primary and secondary sources), and original documents.
We are seeking contributors for articles, chronologies, and bibliographies. Contributors will receive full authorial credit, a modest cash honorarium and/or copy of the full encyclopedia set (depending on contribution length and contributor preference).
If you are interested in contributing to this exciting and important reference project--one we hope will be the definitive reference work on colonial America--we would be happy to email you a prospectus with a full description of the project--with deadline, compensation, and other pertinent information, including a table of contents. Please contact the encyclopedia editorial assistant, Rebecca Black, at the email address below.
If you cannot contribute, please feel free to forward this email to any potentially interested scholars (either professors or graduate students).
