Call for chapters: Fahrenheit 451/Bradbury scholarship for Salem Press's Critical Insights series
Contributors sought for a volume of new essays on Ray Bradbury’s Fahrenheit 451 to be published by Salem Press in its Critical Insights Series. At this stage, I am still entertaining proposals for the following:
a biographical sketch, around 2000 words;
an introductory chapter on Cultural/Historical Context, 4000-5000 words;
an introductory Compare-and-Contrast chapter, 4000-5000 words;
an introductory chapter on Critical Reception, 4000-5000 words;
an introductory Critical Lens chapter of a close reading from a particular critical standpoint, 4000-5000 words; and
ten Critical Reading chapters on topics related to the work, author, or its themes, 5000 words each.
Contributors will receive an honorarium of $250.
Due dates will be around the middle of October, so initial responses are needed very soon. I of course have fuller instructions/guidelines from Salem to send, then a contributor’s contract once proposals are accepted, etc. I am very excited about this project and look forward to hearing from interested scholars.
