Charles Scribners Sons is pleased to announce the forthcoming
publication--in December 2004--of the New Dictionary of the History of
deas (originally published in 1968, Philip P.Wiener, ed. in chief, and on-line at http://etext.lib.virginia.edu/DicHist/dict.html. The New
DHI features developments in scholarship since the publication of the
original; it appraises new thinking in areas previously covered (communism,linguistics, physics) and address new topics (post-colonialism,deconstruction, genetics, postmodernism, queer theory). Seeking to present cross-cultural perspectives on the history of ideas, the new edition will be gender-inclusive and global. A distinguished team of scholars from around the world explore the impact of ideas from Africa, America, Asia, Europe, Latin America and the Middle East.
We have been inviting authors and have edited over two hundred articles already; yet we still have some topics available and would be happy to meet any potential authors. Historians interested in contributing should contact Editor-in-Chief Maryanne Cline Horowitz. Dr. Horowitz will be at the Gale Booth (#144)at the AHA with a list of topics available from 2:40 p.m.to 3:40 p.m. on Friday Jan 9, and 9:40 -11:20 a.m. on Saturday, Jan 10 . Resumes may
also be left at the booth or e-mailed to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Dr. Horowitz and Scribners' staff are looking forward to meeting you at the conference.
