Call for Papers for Edited Volume
Proposed Title: Social Justice and Hurricane Katrina
We invite contributions from communication, economics, ethnic studies, political science, sociology and related fields for a proposed edited volume on the topic of social justice as it relates to Hurricane Katrina. We seek broad coverage of these topics representing an interdisciplinary justice studies or social justice perspective and are soliciting both empirical and theoretical papers.
Hurricane Katrina has been called one of the worst natural disasters on U.S. soil. The aftermath of the storm uncovered man-made disasters of equal magnitude. As the world watched, the economic, political, and social systems of the U.S. were exposed and amid this chaos glaring questions about social justice arose. This volume proposes to examine those questions.
Deadlines for prospectus submission: Please send a 1-2 page prospectus of your proposed chapter, including a brief biographical sketch about the author(s) to Richelle Swan firstname.lastname@example.org or Kristin Bates email@example.com by December 15, 2005.
