I am looking to assign two entries for Violence in American Society: An Encyclopedia of Trends, Problems, and Perspectives. Unfortunately, I had these entries fall through last minute and now I’m scrabbling to find a writer or writers able to take on the subject of "Assault" and Youth Violence." The entries would each look at historical, contemporary, and mediated depictions in the United States. Each would be 5,000 - 8,000 words, however 25% of that can be primary documents (court rulings, historical documents, laws, etc.) While it is a substantial task, which I would require no later than May, 2019, I can see someone with expertise in the subject(s) able to do it.

This year's MMLA conference theme of "Duality, Doubles, and Doppelgangers" offers a wealth of possibilities to explore the complex relationships that minority and immigrant communities have within the larger culture of the United States, as well as the ways in which literary texts communicate the realities of their experiences to a wider audience, particularly when they are introduced in the classroom. With this in mind, the Multicultural Literature in the Classroom section seeks papers that explore the often conflicted relationships that minorities and immigrants have with the communities around them, as well as the ways in which minority and immigrant populations enrich and strengthen the communities of which they are apart, even as they strive to main

Recent upheaval from the Trump administration’s policy-making in the United States has seen the lives of queer subjects radically altered.
