Call for contributors: Encyclopedia of the Caribbean
The editor of the forthcoming Facts On File Encyclopedia of the Caribbean is seeking academic contributors for the final phase of this project.
In print, this will be a three-volume reference work, but it will also be integrated into the Facts On File World History reference database, available electronically to institutional subscribers. High school and college undergraduates are the intended reading audience.
With over 700 entries, the Encyclopedia will be the only comprehensive reference work of its kind for this region, defined to include the circum-Caribbean. Coverage includes key figures, topics and events in history, society and popular culture, religion, literature, politics, geography, and economics. Articles will range from 500 to 8,000 words. There will be 35 country profiles ranging from 3000 to 8000 words. Honorariums are available for writers submitting articles totaling over 1000 words. The project is currently soliciting articles for a deadline of June 1, 2008.
Interested scholars, graduate students, or freelance writers should send a writing sample and a CV or resumé that describes their academic qualifications to write on this subject. A list of unassigned articles can be found at:
Please email queries, writing samples, and CVs to Caribbean_encyclopedia@yahoo.com
