Call for Contributors: Encyclopedia of the Caribbean (Facts on File)

The editor of the forthcoming Facts On File Encyclopedia of the Caribbean is seeking academic contributors for articles on the history, societies, and cultures of this region.

The reference work will be available in a three-volume print edition and through electronic subscription. High school and college students are the intended reading audience.

With over 700 entries, the Encyclopedia will be the only comprehensive reference work of its kind for this region, defined to include the circum-Caribbean. Coverage includes key figures, topics and events in history, society and popular culture, religion, literature, politics, geography, and economics. Articles will range from 500 to 8,000 words and honorariums are available. Deadlines for submitting the work are March 1, July 1, and October 1, 2007, and priority will be given to those who can commit to the earlier targets.

Interested scholars, graduate students, or freelance writers should send a writing sample and a CV or resumé that describes their academic qualifications to write on this subject.
