Call for Chapter Proposals: Race in Urban Communities
Essays concerning issues of race and/or ethnicity as experienced in urban communities are currently being sought. The proposed anthology will contain a collection of
personal accounts, analysis of historical and/or current events, childhood memories, legal rulings, other experiences etc as told through the lens of any racial or ethnic group living in a U.S city (whether a member of the minority or majority) with a population greater than a million people.
As this is an interdisciplinary effort, original contributions from any discipline are welcome. Individuals from the disciplines of history, philosophy, psychology, sociology, political science, religion, anthropology, art, foreign languages, and the natural sciences are particularly urged to apply. Wherever possible, authors are asked to interpret their contribution using any framework, approach, or theory of their choosing from their discipline.
Topics of particular interest include (but are not limited to) the following:
family and youth
A more detailed list of topics is available upon request. To be considered for this project, please send a 600-word proposal by February 1, 2011. Proposals should be accompanied by a one-paragraph biographical statement from the author.
The deadline for original contributions (3000-4000 words in length) is April 1, 2011. Peer reviews of manuscripts will be sent to authors by April 15, 2011 with a request that comments are received no later than April 30, 2011. Final versions of the revised manuscripts are due to the editor by May 15, 2011.
