Calling Great Plains Scholars

Amanda Rees

Call for Great Plains Scholars:

I am presently editing a text on the Great Plains as part of an eight-volume
American regional culture series to be published by Greenwood Press in 2004.
This series is designed to be the definitive reference for American
regionalism for years to come and works to establish as sense of place for
the each region by exploring themes such as: Architecture, Arts, Ecology and
the Environment, Ethnicity, Fashion, Film, Folklore, Food, Literature,
Music, Religion, and Sports and Recreation

The text I am editing will offer an accessible overview of each theme and
its role within the region in order to provide a comprehensive sense of
Great Plains culture. Our core audience will be high school and university
students as well as public library patrons. I am looking for authors to
assign the following thematic chapters:

Arts
Literature
Ethnicity
Fashion
Film
Folklore
Food
Music
* Sports/recreation

Word Length: 15,000 and bibliography
Deadline: August 1st 2003
Illustrations and primary documents encouraged

If you are interested in being a part of this exciting opportunity to
articulate a sense of place for the Great Plains please submit your
curriculum vitae for consideration to Amanda Rees at reesauwyo.edu
<mailto:reesauwyo.edu> indicating the chapter you are interested in
writing. (Please note this is NOT a call for the submission of articles.)
