Call for Papers: Cultural Sociology of Divorce

Call for Papers:

We are inviting academic editorial contributors to Cultural Sociology of Divorce: An Encyclopedia, a 3-volume library reference to be published in 2013 by SAGE Publications. We hope you’ll consider contributing to this exciting project.

This comprehensive project will be marketed to academic and public libraries as a print and digital product available to students via the library’s electronic services. Each article, ranging from 900 to 4000 words, is signed by the contributor. The General Editor of the encyclopedia is Robert E. Emery, Ph.D., University of Virginia, who will review all the articles for editorial content and academic consistency. Payment for the articles are honoraria that range from a $50 book credit from Sage Publications for article submissions up to 1,000 words up to a free copy of the encyclopedia for contributions totaling greater than 10,000 words. More than this, your involvement can help assure that credible and detailed data, descriptions, and analysis are available to students of divorce issues.

At this time the project is almost completely assigned with the exception of the following topics:

  1. Divorce Law-Hispanic Traditions (2000 words) (e.g. Spanish Empire’s influence on communal property laws in the U.S.)
  2. Palimony (1500 words)
  3. Property Distribution (3000 words)

The final deadline for submissions for these entries is October 1, 2012.
