Within the Modern Language Association, forums are the basic organizational unit to focus scholarly discussion around certain periods and topics in literary history.  After a 2014 reorganization of the MLA’s structure, forums in Ming-Qing Chinese Literature and Modern and Contemporary Chinese Literature were successfully established; however, a third forum, in “Pre-14th Century Chinese Literature” failed to get the requisite number of endorsements, and has since languished in the status of a “prospective forum”.

ABC-Clio is bringing out a reference book on the history of astrology in 2018, and I am looking for authors for the articles still unassigned.  All authors will receive credit for their work and access to the e-book version of the final product, and those who contribute 1000 words or more will receive a modest honorarium.  I am particularly interested in scholars with expertise in non-Western astrological traditions.
