Encyclopedia on South American History - Call for Contributors

H. Micheal Tarver's picture

Project editors are still seeking contributors to a forthcoming two-volume encyclopedia on South American history from European contact through independence, to be published by Greenwood/ABC-CLIO/Bloomsbury. 

Under the editorship of Micheal Tarver and Carlos Márquez, a headword list has been determined, with entries ranging from regional Amerindian groups at European arrival to heroes and heroines of the independence movements. The work will be formatted in the traditional A-Z style, although the entries will represent various themes found within South American history. Interested contributors can find the list of remaining available entries at https://tarver.org/headwords. Suggestions for additional entry topics are welcomed.

Most individual entries will be 1000 words. All Contributors will receive free access to the e-book version of the Work. Contributors who write five 1000-word entries will also receive one (1) complimentary set of the printed edition of the Work in lieu of a monetary payment.

Expressions of interest are welcome from graduate students, postdocs, professors, and public history professionals. 

Deadline for this round of contributions is July 1, 2023. Additional calls for contributors may appear thereafter.

Questions concerning the project should be sent to Micheal Tarver at mtarver@atu.edu.
