St. Louis Social Movements of the 1960s-1970s

Chapter proposals are sought for an anthology on 1960s-1970s progressive social movements in St. Louis, Missouri. The project currently is under advance contract with a university press, with an envisioned submission date for peer review in early 2021.

The volume lineup currently features strong coverage on the Black freedom movement and gay liberation/queer organizing. While the co-editors are open to further contributions on those subjects, they particularly seek proposals that highlight the following areas: environmental activism; Chicanx organizing; campus and antiwar movements; feminism; the labor movement; reproductive rights, and adjacent forms of activism.

Proposals for chapters are invited from researchers in fields including U.S. history, women's and gender studies, ethnic studies, American Studies, African American studies, sociology, sexuality studies, and closely related fields. Proposals should consist of an abstract of no more than 500 words plus a current CV. Proposals are due by January 15, 2020.
