Contribution needed for edited volume on British Conservative Party
The editors of a scholarly volume examining the history of the British Conservative Party are seeking a short chapter examining the Conservative Party and women which discusses some aspect of late nineteenth or twentieth century policy(ies). There is a broad remit here and the contributor could alight on electioneering, legislation, the franchise, policies particularly relevant to women, amongst others.
Ideally the conclusion/introduction to the article would place the issue(s) the article discusses in the context of broader twentieth century patterns, though any such reference can be brief.
We are looking for 300 word summaries by 20 April, and the final 7,000 word article would need to be completed by 20 May.
The volume is under contract with a major publisher and will be completed later this summer. It is expected to appear in print in late 2012 or early 2013. Other confirmed contributors include prominent names in the modern British history scholarly community.
Prospective contributors should contact the volume editors by email with an abstract and short CV by 20 April.
