Call for Contributors -- Last Call

H. Micheal Tarver's picture

The Editors of the forthcoming Daily Life of Women: An Encyclopedia from Ancient Times to the Present are seeking contributors to help finalize the project within the next two months. The four-volume encyclopedia is to be published by ABC-CLIO, under the editorship of Colleen Boyett, Mildred Diane Gleason, and Micheal Tarver.

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

All essays would need to be completed NO LATER THAN May 20, 2019.

An entry list has been determined by the editors and publisher, with entries ranging from earliest societies to modern nations. Entry themes are: The Arts; Economics and Work; Family and Community Life; Recreation and Social Customs; and Religious Life.

Forgoing traditional A-Z entries, the encyclopedia will instead contain individual entries focusing on roles of women -- such as Patrons, Artisans, Mystics, Guardians of Sacred Shrines, Academics, and Professionals -- within specific societies. Among the 35+ Societies included are Ancient Mesopotamia, Ancient Israel, Ancient India, Ancient and Early China, Classical Japan, Pre-Islamic Middle East, Byzantine Empire, Islamic Caliphate, Medieval Europe, West African Kingdoms, East African Kingdoms, Southern African Kingdoms, Feudal Japan, Dynastic China and Korea, Central Asian Empires, Americas before 1492, Ottoman Empire, Colonial Latin America, Colonial Canada and the United States, Russia and the Soviet Union, Modern East Asia, Modern West, Central and South Asia, Modern Sub-Saharan Africa, and Modern Australia and New Zealand.

Individual entries will be no longer than 1,000 words.

In the way of compensation, contributors will have free online access to the e-book version of the four-volume project. 

Simply send mtarver@atu.edu an email with the Society/Theme (Left Column) and the Daily Role (Right Column) for any entry you are interested in writing.
