      Project

      Subject: Zieger's new project


      Call for submissions

      Bob Zieger has contracted with the University Press of Florida to edit a
      collection of original essays on recent southern labor history. He is
      soliciting proposals from scholars whose work involves the experiences
      of working people in the American South for the period since 1950. The
      volume and series editors are hoping to present a broad sampling of
      recent scholarship, reflective of the work of both senior and
      early-career scholars, including graduate students. The resulting book
      is to be included in the Press's ongoing series "Working in the
      Americas," edited by Tim Minchin and Richard Greenwald. Those
      interested in participating in this venture are asked to submit a
      300-word abstract, along with a short additional paragraph indicating
      historiographical context and distinctive sources consulted. This
      material should be submitted in Word or WordPerfect via Zieger's e-mail
      address, which is Zieger@... and should reach him by March 15, 2009.

      Those papers to be included in the volume will then be selected and the
      authors notified by April 1, with the papers themselves due on October
      1. It is expected that the published essays will be about 7,000-10,000
      words in length, exclusive of notes.
