Essays are needed for "On the Move: The Encyclopedia of Immigration, Migration, and Nativism in United States History," a four-volume, one million word comprehensive encyclopedia to be published by Facts on File beginning in 2009.
We are seeking essays that range from 200 to 1,000 words, and possibly more upon review of initial submissions. The volumes will consist of more than 1,500 entries covering a broad range of topics emphasizing the themes of demography, geographic mobility, and identity. Example entries include blurbs on literary works or films with related themes such as "Born in East L.A." and "Lone Star"; brief summaries of landmark legislation or Supreme Court cases; profiles of important historical figures in this arena, such as Cesar Chavez, Malcolm X or Black Hawk; and lengthier examinations of ethnic peoples and their pasts in North America.
If you are interested, please e-mail us at: firstname.lastname@example.org for submission guidelines and a list of available topics.
We prefer that contributors hold a master's degree in history, sociology, anthropology or a related field.
