CALL FOR PAPERS – Indigenous Writing and Culture of North America – Canada and the United States

 

The Literary Encyclopedia at www.litencyc.com is looking for qualified writers to enhance its coverage of Indigenous writing and culture of the United States and Canada. The list below is not comprehensive or final, and new proposals of writers/ works/context essays that are not currently listed in our database are also welcome. However, we will prioritize articles on writers and works frequently studied in university courses, and those that are highly topical and well-known.

 

All offers of contribution should come accompanied by an up-to-date CV and, in the case of doctoral students who wish to offer a contribution, also a short writing sample. The overwhelming majority (about 90%) of our contributors are academic scholars, while the remaining percentage is made up of highly endorsed doctoral students and independent researchers.

 

The Literary Encyclopedia aims to deliver a global understanding of world literatures and cultures within an adaptable and responsive digital platform that's ethically conceived, minimalist, but packing great functionality. All our articles are solicited by invitation from specialist scholars in higher education institutions all over the world, refereed and approved by subject editors in our Editorial Board. The LE is thus uniquely selective, reliable and authoritative. Its online format allows for rapid publication and frequent updating of articles; its integrated digital resources (author life-chronologies, customisable timelines, thematic or course-oriented bookshelves, related article clusters, critical bibliographies) respond dynamically to teaching and learning demands.

More detailed information on the Encyclopedia – including its publishing model, editorial policies, specific information for authors etc. – can be found on its homepage at www.litencyc.com, under the ABOUT tab. In order to explore the kinds of content we publish please log in using the case-sensitive username ‘SummerGuest2018' and the password 'Mahfouz1911' (user-name and password will change periodically. Please contact editors if these details no longer allow access - newer details will be provided).

We hope that you will wish to join us in this enterprise. If you wish to contribute, please contact the volume editors (see below), or the managing editor, Dr Cristina Sandru (cristinasandru@litencyc.com).

Volume Editors: Dr Padraig Kirwan (p.kirwan@gold.ac.uk); Dr Sarah Henzi (sal.henzi@umontreal.ca).
