Call for Papers:The Battle of Vimy Ridge
Lammi Publishing is pleased to announce a call for papers for the essay collection, Canadians and War Vol. 2: The Battle of Vimy Ridge, to be published to coincide with the centennial celebration of that seminal battle.
As with the first volume, we wish to provide the opportunity for the discussion of topics that may not be covered in larger works, as well as to provide a place for bold analysis of debates and topics. Though we invite a wide range of perspectives, the discussions must centre on the battle of Vimy Ridge, the preparation, the battle itself, the aftermath, and its lasting perceptions and implications. We welcome discussions of strategy and tactics, accounts of participants, political analysis, conversation about the lasting effects of the battle on both individuals and nations, and even explorations of the battle’s representations in art and literature.
We are looking for a broad array of voices. We welcome lay people as well as students and professional academics. We require all essays to meet professional scholarly standards (proper Chicago citation, appropriate sourcing, academic essay structure), though we do have an editor available to assist with the mechanics if your ideas are sound and you just need a bit of help in the execution.
Essays are to be between 5000 and 7000 words, use standard manuscript format, and be structured and cited according to the Chicago Manual of Style. End notes are to be used for citations and files must be sent in Microsoft Word format.
Rights and Payment
The work will be published as an e-book. Therefore, we require worldwide English language rights in all e-book formats. Payment is to be based upon net royalties proportioned as a percentage of the total work that the essay contains, and it will be issued twice annually.
Proposals must be received no later than September 30th at 11:59 PM, mountain daylight time. Proposals to be sent via email to email@example.com, subject line: Proposal, Canadians and War Vol. 2. Email should contain a one-paragraph description of the proposed work, a paragraph describing the sources to be utilized, and a short biography including previous citations and social media involvement—Twitter, Facebook, blogs, et cetera. Acceptance will be announced around October 15th. First drafts of the essays are due December 1st, 2016 for publication in spring of 2017.
