From: email@example.com Call for Writers – Encyclopedia of Activism and Social Justice
Posted on behalf of Gary Anderson and Kathryn Herr.
We would like to invite you to write an entry or entries for a new Encyclopedia of Activism and Social Justice to be published by Sage Publications. We need scholars with expertise in several areas, and hope you will find a topic in an area of your expertise. We have listed the topics below, but we are open to suggestions if you feel we have left an important issue out.
There is a modest payment for entries, but, of course, we view this as primarily a form of progressive scholarship in that Encyclopedia entries are widely read and help to define social knowledge. If you write entries totaling over 4,000 words, you will receive a free copy of the three-volume encyclopedia. Entries range from 500 words up to 5,000 words, depending on the significance of the topic or person.
If you are interested in participating in this project, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org, indicating the topic or topics you would like to write. We will then send you a formal invitation with author guidelines. Please feel free to forward this list to other relevant scholars who may not be on this list.
