Call for Book Proposals: Controversial Monuments and Memorials

Controversial Monuments and Memorials:
A Guide from the American Association for State and Local History

In the wake of the horrific recent events in Charlottesville, Virginia, and the ensuing move to remove monuments to white supremacy, the American Association for State and Local History Editorial Board is seeking book proposals for a work tentatively titled Controversial Monuments and Memorials: A Guide from the American Association for State and Local History.

In order to publish the book while communities are still grappling with this part of their local history, the Board seeks proposals from authors able to complete a 40-50,000 word manuscript between now and December 29, 2017 (approximately four months). Given this short timeline, the Editorial Board will consider proposals that include some reprinted material.

The AASLH Editorial Board envisions a guide for public officials, community leaders, and historic site and museum professionals that will prepare readers to:

  1. Understand the history of racial violence that makes these monuments, memorials, and other physical markers like street signs, controversial in the United States (possibly also providing some international context and examples for comparative purposes).
  2. Discuss the events in Charlottesville and other locales as they relate to their own communities.
  3. Present their communities with practical ways to move forward in contextualizing and/or removing controversial monuments.

Proposals should address these questions:

  1. Imagine that your book is being promoted on the AASLH website or on Amazon. Begin with a title that captures the tone and spirit of your book. What would the ideal descriptive copy be? Emphasize special features or sections using bullets where appropriate.
  2. Your one to three paragraph bio. Emphasize your education and experience that’s relevant to this book topic. Please include other articles or books you’ve published related to this topic. The point here is to position yourself as an expert in this area
  3. Tentative table of contents. Please include page number estimates for each chapter. Please also include for each chapter an estimated number of photographs, figures, tables, or other graphic elements you think you would want to include in the chapter.

For questions, please contact Rebecca Shrum, Series Editor, at rshrum@iupui.edu or Bob Beatty, Managing Editor, at beatty@aaslh.org.

Rowman & Littlefield will offer a $1,000 advance against royalties to the author upon acceptance of a complete manuscript delivered by December 29, 2017.

Proposals are due Monday, September 18, to Bob Beatty (beatty@aaslh.org).

CFP: Theme Issue on Emergent Literacies in Academic Libraries (Reference Services Review)

Though archives are not mentioned, this is a relevant topic.

Reference Services Review
Call for Papers for Theme Issue on Emergent Literacies in Academic Libraries

Reference Services Review is seeking authors to write on the theme of emergent literacies in academic libraries. Articles in this issue will explore emergent literacies, intersections of multiple literacies, and ideas around the language used to describe, implement, and assess these literacies. We are interested in innovative interpretations and intersectional research around ideas, theory, and practice.

Examples of stand-alone and intersectional topics include, but are not restricted to:

  • Cultural Literacies (International, Indigenous, Economic)
  • Spatial Literacies (How do we create physical and virtual spaces for intellectual pursuits?)
  • Emotional Literacies (Changing demographics of higher education, Inclusivity)
  • Life Skill Literacies (Finance, Self-advocacy, Speaking, Privacy)
  • Narrative Literacies (How do we tell our story? How do students share their stories?)
  • Oral Literacies (Listening, Speaking)
  • Written and Expressive Literacies (Writing, Visual, Performance)
  • Digital & Multimedia Literacies (Social Media, Copyright, Digital media authoring)
  • Literacies across the arc of K-20 education
  • Methodology, pedagogy, and assessment of emergent literacies
  • Forthcoming technologies or developments may create new emerging literacies
  • Intersection of Emergent Literacies & Digital Humanities

Proposed manuscripts may take many forms, including (but not limited to) innovative applications of best practices, literature reviews, or conceptual papers that explore the future of emerging literacies.
We wholeheartedly welcome submissions on emergent literacies and/or approaches not listed above. We encourage manuscripts that explore innovative intersections of various literacies, approaches, and pedagogical approaches.

The theme issue, Volume 46 Issue 2, will be published in June 2018. Manuscripts must be submitted by February 24, 2018. Submitted manuscripts are evaluated using a double-blind peer review process. Authors can expect to work on revisions in February and March 2018. Final manuscripts will be due by April 7, 2018.

Proposals/abstracts due: October 15, 2017.

Send proposals/abstracts or inquiries to both:
Tammy Ivins (ivinst@uncw.edu), Transfer Student Services Librarian at the University of North Carolina Wilmington and
Sylvia Tag (sylvia.tag@wwu.edu), Librarian for Colleges/Departments/Programs at Western Washington University
