Call for Contributions: US Philanthropy At Home and Abroad

We invite chapter proposals for our forthcoming edited collection, American Philanthropy at Home and Abroad: From Civil War to Cold War. Currently under contract at Bloomsbury, the collection explores how concepts of philanthropy and giving have evolved throughout American history. The authors trace how charities, local associations, religious organisations, and philanthropic foundations have engaged with and sought to shape American politics, society and relations with the wider world.
