CALL FOR AUTHORS: Multicultural America: A Multimedia Encyclopedia

Multicultural America: A Multimedia Encyclopedia presents state-of-the-art
research, ready-to-use facts, and multimedia pedagogy. The approximately 950
signed entries (with cross-references and further readings) will cover
issues in historical and contemporary ethnic and multicultural studies. The
print 4 volumes and the online edition with 100 videos will include
information relevant to the following academic disciplinary contexts: the
demographic and cultural balance of the United States today and tomorrow;
arts and media; business and economics; criminal justice; education; family
studies; health; media; military; politics; science and technology; sports;
and religion. From A-to-Z, this work covers the spectrum of defining and
illuminating multiculturalism. The goals of this encyclopedia are to help
readers gain a better understanding of:

* the historical development of multicultural America.
* the contemporary American multicultural mosaic.
* the possible future trajectories of American multiculturalism.

In writing, contributors should consider their entries’ contribution to
these three goals. Where appropriate, entries should include data from and
references to the 2010 United States census.

This comprehensive project will be published by SAGE Reference in 2013 and
will be marketed to academic and public libraries as a print and digital
product available to students via the library’s electronic services. The
General Editor, who will be reviewing each submission to the project, is Dr.
Carlos E. Cortés, Professor Emeritus of History, University of California,

We are currently making new assignments with a deadline for submissions of
August 1, 2012.

If you are interested in contributing to this cutting-edge reference, it is
a unique opportunity to contribute to the contemporary literature,
redefining sociological issues in today’s terms. Moreover, it can be a
notable publication addition to your CV/resume and broaden your publishing
credits. SAGE Publications offers an honorarium ranging from SAGE book
