M.E. Sharpe, a New York-based academic and reference publisher, is seeking contributing scholars for a two-volume reference work on the history of the counterculture in America from colonial times to the present-day. The project is aimed at the academic high school and undergraduate levels. The General Editors are Gina Misiroglu, independent scholar, and Dr. Karen Karbiener of New York University.
The encyclopedia will include articles on individuals, organizations, themes, events, ideas, works of art and literature, and more. Articles will vary in length from 500-2,000 words for entries on specific topics (depending on significance). Counterculture will also include a number of ancillary features, including a detailed bibliography.
We are seeking contributors for the remaining several dozen articles—all of which are due in September. All 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 the American counterculture—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 Gina Misiroglu @firstname.lastname@example.org.
If you cannot contribute, please feel free to notify other qualified scholars (either professors or graduate students) of this notice.
