Gerd Bayer

New deadline:

Authors are sought for a few remaining chapters of the Europe volume of the
Encyclopedia of World Popular Culture, a six-volume set under contract with
the Greenwood Publishing Group.
Each volume will consist of narrative chapters, similar in style and scope to the
individual entries in the "American Popular Culture through History" series
(also Greenwood). Starting with the onset of mass media culture during the
turn of the 19th to the 20th century, each essay should provide an overview
over its topic, covering all European countries. The average length of entries
will be around 12,000 words, including notes and a resource guide. The
submission deadline for completed essays is June 30, 2006. Upon publication
of the volume, Greenwood will pay authors an honorarium.
The following chapters need assignments:
* Architecture
* Art
* Games, Hobbies & Toys
* Theatre and Performance
* Transportation & Travel

Interested authors should provide evidence of research background in their
respective fields. For questions and further information, or to request an
assignment, contact the volume editor by March 15, 2006:
