Call for Submissions – Due Date, February 1, 2005.
The Society for the Anthropology of Europe is accepting submissions for our forthcoming series, European Anthropology in Translation, in partnership with Berghahn Books.
The targeted submission is of a very specific type, and we will only be looking at those submissions that appear at first glance to satisfy our most basic parameters for the series.
We would like to receive submissions from:
Working in Europe, broadly defined.
In possession of manuscripts previously published in their native language.
Preferably capable of translating (or arranging the translation of) their work.
Owning the international rights to said manuscript.
Interested in reaching an American audience, covering issues of broad relevance to American colleagues, moving beyond an audience of specialists in a field/topic/area.
If you believe yourself to be in possession of these attributes, we would enjoy hearing from you during a preliminary selection round intended to produce a handful of candidates for our first volume in the series.
Please outline the following (in English):
One paragraph (150-200 word) biography.
One paragraph (150-300 word) abstract of your volume.
One paragraph (150-300 word) outline of your manuscript’s attraction for American ethnographers.
a. How does it fill a perceived lack in our perception of the society/culture you study?
One paragraph addressing the publishing history of your manuscript and its legal status.
One paragraph addressing your translation skills, or other avenues you would pursue.
Due to the anticipated high volume of submissions, any proposals that do not fulfill these requirements will be summarily rejected (though you may resubmit). Failure to send your proposal by the deadline of February 1, 2005, will also be cause for summary rejection.
Please send your proposal electronically to the contact information provided below (No attachments, please!):
