Final Call for Contributors
The Encyclopedia of African American History
Contributors are needed for the final round of remaining entries for The Encyclopedia of African American History, co-edited by Professors Leslie Alexander and Walter Rucker and published by ABC-CLIO, Inc.
Scheduled to appear in 2009, this three-volume encyclopedia will be part of an ongoing series on American ethnic history. Aimed at general audiences and college students, this project will include more than 700 alphabetically arranged entries divided into five major chronological and thematic sections. In addition, we also have an editorial board of distinguished scholars in the field of African American History.
For a listing of the approximately 20 remaining entries, please see below or visit our project website at http://home.earthlink.net/~drwrucker/eaah/id2.html.
If you are interested in contributing to this project, send a brief C.V. and a list preferred entries to: firstname.lastname@example.org. Completed entries will have deadlines no later than January 15, 2009.
As is usually the case with reference works, compensation is limited to a very modest honorarium or a copy of the published encyclopedia, depending on the number and length of entries.
We sincerely hope that you can contribute to this important project. Leslie Alexander & Walter Rucker, editors
The Encyclopedia of African American
