I am under contract with Greenwood Press to edit a three-volume, 600,000 word encyclopedia entitled 'LGBTQ America Today.' If you think you might be interested in contributing an entry or entries, please contact me and I will forward to you the full description, including the lengthy proposed table of contents that indicates the words allotted to each entry. I am setting a somewhat arbitrary deadline of Halloween for delivery of first drafts, principally as a sure-fire jog to the memory. Contributors are encouraged to finish well before that (on the other hand, a bit more time may be available if one's workload has become oppressive).

and decline. Please send 250-word abstracts via email to Jaime Jordan,

We encourage both traditional and innovative scholarship addressing critical, cultural, and theoretical issues related to the field.
