Call for contributors: Reference work in American women's history
Hasia Diner, the Paul S. and Sylvia Steinberg Professor of American Jewish History at New York University, is in the process of editing a multi-volume encyclopedia in American women’s history. Going well beyond Notable American Women, this reference work, which will be published by Facts on File, will include not just biographical entries, but will cover organizations, concepts, and ideas central to understanding the history of women in America.
Several hundred entries remain unassigned and we are currently looking for writers for these articles. At the bottom of this email you will find a link to a frequently updated online list of unassigned entries. Unfortunately only a modest honorarium is available.
The deadline for this work will be August 10, 2010.
Please feel free to forward email to any qualified graduate students or colleagues you think may be interested in contributing.
