A specialist in the study of the Renaissance is sought to write a 170,000-word book on the subject geared toward students in high school and college. The audience also will include scholars, teachers, librarians, and general readers, so the book needs to be authoritative as well as accessible to a wide range of readers.
The candidate should have a PhD in Renaissance history, Renaissance art, or a closely related field. Excellent English-language skills and the ability to meet deadlines also are essential. Affiliation with a college or university, museum, or institute is preferred, as are at least some publications in the field. Residence in the United States, Canada, or the UK is preferred. The book also could be written by two or three individuals.
If the candidate's academic background does not quite focus on the Renaissance, a demonstrable focus on the Renaissance in the person's scholarly endeavors may substitute, e.g., research projects, publications (especially a book), or curatorial experience.
The author will receive a royalty contract.
Interested individuals should email (or mail) a c.v. and one or two short writing samples to:
116 Monarch St
Louisville, CO 80027
