CALL FOR PAPERS – CARIBBEAN LITERATURE& CULTURE



The Literary Encyclopedia at www.litencyc.com <http://www.litencyc.com/> is looking for qualified writers to enhance its coverage of Anglophone Writing and Culture of Central America and the Caribbean. The list below is not comprehensive or final, and new proposals of writers/ works/context essays that are not currently listed in our database are also welcome. However, we will prioritize articles on writers and works frequently studied in university courses, and those that are highly topical and well-known.



All offers of contribution should come accompanied by an up-to-date CV and, in the case of doctoral students who wish to offer a contribution, also a short writing sample. The overwhelming majority (about 90%) of our contributors are academic scholars, while the remaining percentage is made up of highly endorsed doctoral students and independent researchers.



The Literary Encyclopedia aims to deliver a global understanding of world literatures and cultures within an adaptable and responsive digital platform that's ethically conceived, minimalist, but packing great functionality. All our articles are solicited by invitation from specialist scholars in higher education institutions all over the world, refereed and approved by subject editors in our Editorial Board. The LE is thus uniquely selective, reliable and authoritative. Its online format allows for rapid publication and frequent updating of articles; its integrated digital resources (author life-chronologies, customizable timelines, thematic or course-oriented bookshelves, related article clusters, critical bibliographies) respond dynamically to teaching and learning demands.


We hope that you will wish to join us in this enterprise. If you wish to contribute, please contact the volume editors, Dr Ronald Cummings ([log in to unmask]) or Dr Melanie Otto ([log in to unmask]) or the managing editor, Dr Cristina Sandru ([log in to unmask]<mailto:[log in to unmask]>).
