Arts of a region: Rocky Mountain Region Scholars

Rick Newby

Rocky Mountain Regional Culture

I am seeking contributors* for a reference work on Rocky Mountain regional
culture.

The Rocky Mountain volume is part of a Greenwood Reference Series
on American regional cultures; the series also includes volumes on New
England, the Mid-Atlantic Region, the Midwest, the South, the Southwest, the
Great Plains, and the Pacific Region. For the purposes of the Greenwood
series, the Rocky Mountain region is made up of the states of Colorado,
Utah, Wyoming, Montana, and Idaho. The core audience for the series will be
high school and university students as well as public library patrons.

In addition to topical chapters on Architecture, Ecology/Environment,
Ethnicity, Fashion, Film, Folklore, Food, Language, Literature, Music,
Religion, and Sports/Recreation, the Rocky Mountain volume will feature a
substantial essay on the A r t s of the region. The chapter will identify
and
examine particular aspects of Rocky Mountain arts as they have evolved over
time, through the beginning of the 21st century, always taking into account
the rich diversity of artistic expressions within the region.

The chapters will be approximately 15,000 words. Contributors will receive
an honorarium and one copy.


* Please note that I am NOT calling for the submission of articles but am
seeking inquiries from scholars who wish to contribute topical overview
chapters to this volume on Rocky Mountain regional culture. If you are
interested in being a part of this opportunity to help articulate a
sense of place for the Rocky Mountains, please submit your curriculum vitae
for consideration to Rick Newby at rnewby@zadig-llc.com, indicating the
chapter you are interested in writing.
