Encyclopedia of Postwar America--Seeking article writers
CALL FOR CONTRIBUTORS
An Encyclopedia of Social, Political, Cultural, and Economic History
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 post-World War II era of American history. The final encyclopedia set in a series on eras in 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; society; religion and education; technology, science, and the environment; and 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 words for entries on specific topics (depending on significance) to 4,000 words for general essays.
Many of the entries have already been assigned and submitted but there are numerous ones left. Because we are facing a tight deadline from the publisher, we ask that you not respond to this solicitation unless you are confident you can finish assigned entries within the 60-day deadline (from signing of contract, deadline determined by length of entry or entries)..
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 of remaining entries. Please contact the encyclopedia general editor at: firstname.lastname@example.org
If you cannot contribute, please feel free to forward this email to any potentially interested scholars (either professors or graduate students).
