CALL FOR PAPERS: “Environmental Justice in North America”
Chapter proposals are invited for inclusion in Routledge’s “Environmental Justice in North America” volume. The volume will serve as a required or supplementary textbook in BA/MA courses on American, North American, and Global environmental history, Indigenous studies, environmental studies, sustainability studies, peace and justice studies, and Race/Ethnic studies. It will offer instructors and students a range of accessible historical case studies that illuminate the challenges of confronting environmental racism and environmental classism, written by a set of authors that reflects the diversity of communities examined in the book.
Each chapter will be roughly 9-10k words (including notes and selected bibliography); employ historical methodology and relevant theory; include one or two primary documents; and provide a comprehensive survey of the diverse peoples and issues related to the chapter topic.
Contributors will receive (per Routledge’s policy) 2 copies of the volume: a hardback and either a paperback or E-book version. Royalties will be donated to North American environmental justice organizations featured in the book.
Interested authors should send a short abstract (roughly 300 words) of the proposed chapter and a short version c.v. to Dr. Paul C. Rosier (firstname.lastname@example.org) by June 1, 2021. Chapter drafts will be due by July 15, 2022; final drafts will be due by September 15, 2022.
