Call for Essay Contributions -- The International Encyclopedia of Revolution and Protest, 1500-Present

This eight-volume, 5,000-page, peer-reviewed work, to be published by Blackwell next year is intended to become “the definitive reference work on the role of popular agency in transforming the world in which we live.”

We are in the process of dramatically expanding the Encyclopedia’s coverage of anarchism. To that end, we are soliciting essay contributions on the topics listed below.

Each essay will bear the contributing writer’s name. There is no set limit on how many entries any one writer may contribute; all those listed are available until assigned. Contributors of 5,000 words or more will receive compensation in Blackwell books; others will be entitled to a discount on Wiley-Blackwell books in print. All contributors will have access to the electronic version of the entire work for at least a year.

We are on a tight production schedule. First and final drafts of essays will be due on the following dates in 2008:

250-word entries: January 14, February 11
500-1000 word entries: January 28, February 25
More than 1000 words: February 25, April 14

Production is slated to begin, appropriately enough, on May Day 2008.

If you are interested, please email Associate Editor Jesse Cohn ([mailto]jcohn@pnc.edu[/mailto]) with the titles of entries you would be willing to write and a brief list of any relevant publications.
