CALL FOR CONTRIBUTIONS FOR THE ENCYCLOPEDIA OF AFRO-EUROPEAN STUDIES
The German branch of the project AFROEUROPE@NS: BLACK CULTURES AND IDENTITIES IN EUROPE is continuing to commission entries for the the first online multilingual ENCYCLOPEDIA OF AFRO-EUROPEAN STUDIES.
Send proposals of specific and separate entries, not exceeding 3000 words, on:
• the history of the African presence
• facts and statistics
• political movements and social activism
• landmark immigration policies
as well as
• writers and artists in all fields (music, the visual arts, drama, film, photography, etc.)
• seminal theoretical works, key terms and concepts, names of theoreticians, and centres of research in Afro-European studies, not exceeding 2000 words,
in German-speaking countries (Germany, Austria, and Switzerland).
The criteria for the inclusion of particular individuals or their work is that they are either African or of African descent, live or have lived in Europe for a significant number of years, and that their work has contributed to cross-cultural exchange in the widest sense. We encourage entries to be accompanied by complementary materials which may be used for didactic purposes, such as images, music, documentaries, extracts from major texts, etc.
In the first instance please email your suggested topics for entries to firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com. We will review lemmata on a rolling basis and contact authors as soon as possible, providing style sheet and further information.
The deadline for proposals is 30 June 2012 and 31 January 2013 for the final submission of complete entries. The Encyclopedia is a work in progress aiming to capture new developments in the rapidly expanding field of Afro-European studies. In case you are interested in contributing to the project but are not able to meet the current deadline, we would appreciate your sending us the proposed topics and indicating when you would be able to submit the final version.
All final entries should be written in English and the relevant national language.
