CALL FOR CHAPTER PROPOSALS
Race, Ethnicity, Religion and the Cold War: A Global Perspective
We invite proposals from scholars and advanced graduate students to be contributors for a book project of compiled essays on the ways in which race, ethnicity, and religion have impacted both the domestic and foreign affairs of states during the Cold War. Much scholarship has been produced on how these issues have impacted U.S. foreign policy but not much has been done on the ramifications for other nations – this will be the focus of this volume.
Chapter proposals from scholars of any discipline focusing on any region of the world from 1945-1990 will be considered. Proposals can take a transnational approach or focus solely on one state. Proposals on the impact of race, ethnicity, or religion on the foreign policies of Vietnam, Nigeria, Pakistan, and India are particularly sought.
Scholars interested in being a contributor are invited to submit a proposal including a CV and a 400-500 word abstract detailing the intended subject, thesis, and sources used in the proposed submission by April 15, 2009. Previously published material will be considered for this project. Editors will inform applicants whether their proposal has been accepted by May 1, 2009. Authors of accepted proposals should submit their final essays, of between 5,000-10,000 (words including notes), by January 1, 2010.
Pending funding we hope to hold a small mini-conference on this theme in early 2010 in order to allow contributors to collaborate, share ideas, and receive feedback on their research from outside scholars. After the conference authors will then be given an additional 4-6 weeks in order to make any additional revisions they feel necessary before final versions will be delivered to publisher. Conference participation, however, is not a requirement for contributors to this project.
Please submit your abstracts electronically in MS Word compatible format to Phil Muehlenbeck at firstname.lastname@example.org.
