After the successful completion of an anthology on Modern European history, the editor is now looking for contributors to write essays/chapters for another one scheduled to be published by Orientblackswan, India, in 2010.
Title: "Revisiting Modern European History: gender, class, nation, religion and race”. Chapters should be written in an accessible manner covering both facts and interpretations in about 15,000 words on the following themes:
The Industrial Revolution: origins, nature, impact and the varying pace in different parts of Europe. Historiographically, apart from traditional approaches it should survey environmental, ecological, non-western and gender perspectives.
Religion and modernity: should engage critically with the long held views about secularisation, nationalisation, and industrialisation as simultaneous processes resulting in overall modernization. The chapter should look at religion as an integral part of cultural, intellectual and political life of Europeans and be able to highlight contestations and conflicts between state actors, political parties and believers.
Nationalism: should be able to trace the trajectory of nationalism in the long nineteenth and first half of twentieth centuries. Theories of nationalism, along with case studies of Italy, Germany, Ireland and the Balkans should be addressed in some detail.
Scholars having some expertise and teaching experience in these areas may send a 1,000 word proposal with a C.V.
