I am looking for contributors to a new book tentatively entitled An Environmental History of New York City. The multiple-authored book will treat all aspects of the city's environmental history with no chronological limits. While the book will be historical, I am looking for geographic, geological, and ecological perspectives as well. I likely will accept approximatly 12 to 15 articles for inclusion of about 25-30 manuscript pages in length with full citations.
This edited volume to be published by Lexington Books will explore the intersection of religion/spirituality with childbirth and midwifery. In the Late Modern period (1800 to the present day) in large parts of the world, midwives were overshadowed and undermined by the growing professionalism of medicine, hospitalization and ultimately the medicalization of the birthing process itself. Due to these changes the meaning of childbirth has shifted, often becoming more private and more medical.
