Contributors Sought for Ethnic American Food Encyclopedia

Tuesday, April 08, 2014   (0 Comments)

The Ethnic American Food Today Encyclopedia, to be published by AltaMira Press (an imprint of Rowman & Littlefield) and edited by Lucy M. Long, is seeking contributing writers.

Organized by nationality and culture, this encyclopedia offers a comprehensive overview of ethnic and immigrant food cultures in the US. Each entry includes a cultural background on a group, a summary of its immigration and settlement history in the US, a description of traditional foodways and adaptations made in the US, and discussion of the place of those foods in the contemporary American food scene and popular culture. Recipes representing iconic foods are given for most groups.

Word length varies from 1000 to 4000 words.

Deadline: June 15, 2014

For more information, contact Dr. Lucy Long, Director, Center for Food and Culture, Bowling Green, OH (www.foodandculture.org), at LucyL@foodandculture.org or 419-595-0206.
