CFP: Call for Book Chapters: A History of World Peace
Deadline: October 1, 2016
Call for Book Chapters:
This is an extended call for contributions for an anthology tentatively entitled A History of World Peace since 1750, a collection solicited by Routledge Press. The editors have already secured 30+ contributions from an impressive array of scholars and are well into the peer-review process. However, to fill this volume—one deliberately diverse in scope and interdisciplinary in approach—more contributions are needed to fill some regional and thematic gaps.
Therefore, we are seeking chapters from the fields of history and/or peace studies, and are especially interested in scholarship that utilizes transnational, gender, or international relations methodologies and perspectives in the following areas:
– Peace Efforts in Southeast Asia
– An Israeli perspective on the Israeli / Palestinian Conflict
– A Feminist perspective on either national, or transnational peace issues
– Modern Conflicts in the Middle East (especially Afghanistan and / or Syria)
– Examples of popular art (cartoons, drawings, images, etc.) that represent, or stand themselves, as examples of peace activism.
– Institutional peace promotion
– Peacekeeping, Peacebuilding, and State building
The inclusion of these chapters, we feel, would help to complete an already comprehensive collection focused on numerous aspects of peace and peace activism since 1750, one that aims to explain the increasingly complex methods by which grassroots activists, political figures, cultural commentators, scholars, and theologians have grappled with peace in global and transnational contexts.
We anticipate full chapters to range from 5,000 – 6,000 words (including notes), and submissions should follow conventions of American English and Chicago Style Guidelines (with footnotes).
Abstracts of 500-750 words should be emailed no later than Oct 1, 2016 to William.Knoblauch@finlandia.ed
Authors will be notified by October 15, 2016
Full chapters will be due by January 1, 2017.
Peer Review will be completed by March 1, 2017
Final chapters submitted by June 1, 2017.
