Publishing Opportunity: The Cultural History of Reading
The Cultural History of Reading (forthcoming from Greenwood Press, 2007) examines written documents (books, pamphlets, treatises, plays, poems, essays etc.) that shaped, and were shaped by, crucial cultural events throughout the world and in the United States. Each volume explores the relationship between the historical moments that shaped a nation or region, and the texts that challenged, incited, enforced, or subverted those events. A list of recent references and other sources will also be included.
The Editor seeks contributors to write chapters in the following areas for the American Literature volume.
1. Pre-colonial (prior to 1700)
2. Settlement and Colonization (1700-1776)
3. Revolution and the New Republic (1776-1820)
4. The Civil War (1861-1865)
5. Growth of a Nation (1865-1913)
6. Rebellions and Countercultures (1960-1979)
7. (Sub)cultures of the late twentieth-century (1980-2000)
8. The 21st Century (2000-present)
Chapters will be approximately 50-60 pages and include: 1) an introduction to the region or time period; 2) a timeline of important cultural events; 3) information about the specific texts that stand in relation to the era, including author, date of first publication, overview of content; and 4) discussion of cultural significance.
