Second Call for Contributors: Encyclopedia of American Material Culture
Second call for contributors for the Encyclopedia of American Material Culture,
to be published in 2006 by ABC-CLIO. The Encyclopedia, with 100+ entries, addresses the history, theory, practice, trends, and "stuff" of American material culture studies. It is a much-needed comprehensive overview of the state of the field of American material culture studies.
Most entries have already been assigned and completed. A good number of entries, varying from 250 to 2000 words, remain. 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 by November 1. Contributors will receive full authorial credit and a modest cash honorarium. Entry length varies from 250 to 2000 words.
Key entries that are still available include (but are not limited to) African American material culture, Anthropology and Archaeology, Automobiles and Automobility, Cultural Geography, Race, Slavery, Work and Labor.
Interested scholars and advanced graduate students should contact via email one of the the editors, Helen D. Sheumaker and Shirley Wajda, for a complete list of remaining entries.
