CALL FOR CONTRIBUTORS
CULTURAL ENCYCLOPEDIA OF VEGETARIANISM
I am currently seeking contributors for a reference work on
vegetarianism to be published by Greenwood Publishing Group. This
encyclopedia will include approximately 100 entries and covers cultural
and historical aspects of vegetarianism. Scholars from a diversity of
fields, such as History, Nutrition, Anthropology, American Studies,
Religious Studies, Women’s & Gender History, History of Childhood &
Children, and the History of Medicine, are encouraged to submit. Entries
vary in size from 500 to 1500 words.
Some available entries include but are not limited to:
Transcendentalism, The Shakers, Fruitlands, Brook Farm, Octagon
Settlement Company, The Bible-Christians, “Back to Nature” movement,
Eastern Influences on Vegetarianism in the U.S., and Asia.
The deadline for submission is May 1, 2009. The deadline is firm;
please do not respond to this call unless you are confident that you can
complete an entry or group of entries by that date.
If you are interested in contributing to this work, please send a c.v.
that includes your background and interests in cultural aspects of
vegetarianism as well as your preferred e-mail *and* postal address to:
email@example.com. Qualified candidates will receive a listing
of all available topics and additional information. Prospective
contributors will receive an assignment, contributors’ guidelines, and
sample entries by e-mail followed by a release form mailed from the
publisher to be signed and returned. Completed entries are subject to
the normal editing process required for quality publications and are
accepted for publication at the
discretion of the editor and publisher.
Thank you for your interest,
Margaret Puskar-Pasewicz, Editor
