Words for Football: World literature on Soccer and the Human Condition
CALL FOR SUBMISSIONS
“Words for Football: World Literature on Soccer and the Human Condition”
As co-editors of a forthcoming anthology of world literature related to football/soccer (University of Nebraska Press), we invite original submissions for possible inclusion.
Essays, poetry, diaries, memoirs, short fiction, interviews, ethnographies, field reports, video and audio transcripts, and academic research -- of no more than 5,000 words per submission -- on all aspects of football, its culture, and place in daily life are welcome. We are especially interested in contributions about the grassroots game, women’s soccer, and the meaning of football as a political, psycho-social, and aesthetic component in communities and among persons around the world.
Submissions in languages other than English are encouraged, if accompanied by an English-language summary of 100 to 150 words. The deadline for submissions is June 1, 2006. Please include a mailing address and e-mail address (if available).
If your contribution of original work is accepted -- either in full or in abridged version -- you will receive a consent-to-publish form for your approval and a complimentary copy of the anthology when published.
Address or e-mail submissions as documents or PDF attachments to:
