I am working on editing a volume of essays to be published under the title "Sex, Gender, and the Cold War: A Global Perspective" which will take a look at how these issues impacted both the domestic and foreign affairs of states during the Cold War period. Much scholarship has been done on how these issues impacted the United States but not much has been done on the ramifications for other nations - this will be the focus of this volume. The resulting book will be the third part of a “trilogy” exploring various aspects of the Cold War from a global perspective. The first two volumes, Religion and the Cold War and Race, Ethnicity, and the Cold War were both published by Vanderbilt University Press in 2012 and were well received.
I am seeking potential contributors whose research might be a good fit for this project. While I am willing to consider any chapter proposal on sex, gender, and the Cold War broadly defined, proposals which focus on a country other than the United States and are based on non-U.S. primary source research are particularly sought. Submissions which take a comparative transnational approach are also welcomed.
We are looking for contributions to be in the range of 5,000-10,000 words (including notes).
Interested scholars should send a short biography and abstract of about 500 words to firstname.lastname@example.org by May 15th. A decision on which proposed contributions will be included in the volume will be made by June 1st. If selected for inclusion in the volume, contributors would be expected to submit the first draft of their chapter by December 31, 2014.
