On behalf of my co-editors Jennifer C. Dunn and Danielle M. Stern, I am glad to announce that we have been invited to prepare a second edition of our book Lucky Strikes and a Three-Martini Lunch: Thinking about Television's Mad Men. This new edition will feature revisions to essays from the first edition, new essays that explore later developments in the program, and a new section that will offer teaching materials for those interested in using the book in the classroom. The second edition will be released in conjunction with the final episodes of the popular AMC series.

We are currently seeking teaching resources to be included in the book. Submissions can include classroom activities, assignments, descriptions of how specific episodes can be used in the classroom, or even teaching units or classroom syllabuses. Contributions must be the original work of the author, and they do not have to tie into the chapters from the first or second edition of the book. Any materials related to using Mad Men in the classroom will be considered. All resources must be submitted as a Word file (.doc or .docx) by Monday, September 29, 2014. We anticipate a fast review process, and resources accepted for publication will immediately move into preparation for publication.

Please direct all submissions to Jimmie Manning at jman@niu.edu. Questions can also be sent to that email address. Thank you for your consideration!
