Updated list of available entries: Routledge Medieval Encyclopedia Online

Prof. Dr. Meri's picture

Dear Esteemed Colleagues,

Thank you for the tremendous response to my call for authors for the Routledge Medieval Encyclopedia Online. I am assigning entries from my editorial colleagues’ lists in order to expedite the assignment process. Some of you may hear directly from me about revising entries previously submitted to Medieval Islamic Civilization: An Encyclopedia. If you previously contributed to MICE and have not heard from me or a fellow editor about revising and updating your entry, then may I please ask you to get in touch.

If you would like to contribute and you have experience with any of the topics below, please contact me.

Please note in particular the addition of quite a few new entries from my editorial colleagues’ lists, including: History and Historical Writing (Arabic, Persian and Ottoman Turkish); Medicine (Islamic).

Ph.D. candidates who are interested in these entries need to submit their CVs along with the name of their Ph.D. supervisor.

I am grateful for your time and efforts to help make this project a success. I look forward to hearing from you. Please e-mail me directly (jwmeri@gmail.com)

Best wishes,

Josef Meri
