ABC-CLIO is seeking someone to prepare a 4-volume reference work on Daily Life of Women in World History. The book would include chronologically arranged sections on roughly 30 different societies from the ancient world to the present. Each section on a society would include subsections on categories related to daily life, with reference entries in each subsection discussing particular topics related to the daily life of women. The editor of the project would be responsible for mapping out the work in detail, soliciting and coordinating contributors, and reviewing and revising material.
ABC-CLIO is looking for someone to write or edit All Things Victorian: An Encyclopedia of the Victorian World. This reference work would be around 325,000 words and would contain roughly 120 alphabetically arranged entries on the material culture, social institutions, customs, places, and so forth related to the Victorian world. It would not cover historical figures. If interested, please email your c.v. to George Butler firstname.lastname@example.org.
