Routledge Books has requested a proposal for a sports media history anthology. The book will cover all periods and all forms of media and will serve as a standard reference for students, academics, and other interested professionals. The book will focus on the interplay of sports, media, and global culture at various points of history, with chapters that stress interpretive over descriptive writing. Interdisciplinary and multidisciplinary perspectives are welcome.
If you have something that you would consider appropriate to the project, I would love to hear about it. I was wanting to get all the abstracts in by Oct. 15. If you could e-mail a 300-word proposal to firstname.lastname@example.org by then, that would be great. If you need additional guidance and interaction before you fully develop your proposal, I’m also available.
Let me know if you have any questions. And if you know of anyone who would be interested in this project, feel free to forward this information.
