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 two-volume illustrated reference work on the history of the Jazz Age in America, from 1918 to 1929. The project is aimed at the academic high school and undergraduate levels. The General Editor is Dr. James Ciment.
The encyclopedia includes articles on politics and government; business, economy and labor; family, community, and society; consumer and popular culture; and foreign affairs. There will be entries on individuals, places, ideas, events, institutions, and general themes. Articles will vary in length from 750-4,000 (depending on significance of topic).
We are seeking contributors for the remaining articles. 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 Jazz Age 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. Please contact the encyclopedia editorial assistant, Irene Chow at firstname.lastname@example.org
If you cannot contribute, please feel free to forward this email to any potentially interested scholars (either professors, graduate students, or qualified independent scholars).
