Subject: Seeking Contributors: Encyclopedia of Elizabethan England
I'm seeking scholars interested in contributing to the forthcoming
Encyclopedia of Elizabethan England. This work will be published by
ABC-CLIO, the leading academic reference publishing company.
This multi-volume reference work is aimed at advanced secondary school
or undergraduate audiences covering subjects important to the English
experience from the accession of Elizabeth to the death of William
Shakespeare. Entries will also touch on broader elements of British
culture and the early modern world as appropriate. The finished
encyclopedia will include overview essays and select primary documents
along with entries reflecting a range of important topics for the era.
Entries are still unassigned for many individuals, texts, events,
institutions and cultural movements from a wide-ranging list.
Scholars with an interest in early modern English literature, culture
and history should email the editor -- Janice Liedl at
jliedl@laurentian ca -- with a brief description of their research
interests and relevant qualifications to receive a list of available
related topics. Graduate students who are working in the area are also
welcome to contribute as authors.
All contributors to the Encyclopedia receive author credits and access
to the online version of the encyclopedia. Contributors who write 3000
words or more also receive a minimum credit of $300 toward the purchase
of any ABC-CLIO print or e-book publication, including the Encyclopedia.
