This is an updated posting seeking submissions. There are many topics still
available for essays that I thought might be handled by scholars listed in

Subject: Call for Papers -- Please Circulate


Entries are invited for a reference book, Reader's Guide to Lesbian and
Gay Studies, to be published by Fitzroy Dearborn Publishers in Chicago.
The entries will describe the key secondary literature available in English
on topics important to l/g studies. The entries will ordinarily describe
10 book-length studies on a particular topic, policy, historical period,
person, school of thought, etc. As necessary, article-length studies can be
described and evaluated as well. The entries will ordinarily run to 1000
words, though more important topics can certainly be longer. Honoraria will
ordinarily be $50 (US), though longer entries will carry larger amounts.
Faculty members and advanced graduate students are invited to write
entries. Further details of this project are available upon request.

If you believe an entry ought to be included, please contact the editor at
the email address below. Bear in mind, that there ought to be sufficient
existing literature to support an entry. Sometimes, interesting topics are
not well studied and may be, therefore, inappropriate for this volume.
