Still Looking for Contributors

I am editing two reference books on rape and sexual violence. Please read the information below and share with others. Writers do not have to have an academic affiliation, but do need expertise in the subject area. Thank you!


Call for Contributors: Encyclopedia of Rape and Sexual Violence

To be published by ABC-CLIO, this 2-volume encyclopedia will feature long-form articles of approximately 11,000 words or 40-45 double-spaced manuscript pages. The encyclopedia will focus on rape in various contexts throughout the world, covering such topics as marriage or intimate partner rape, drug-facilitated rape, and rape in war. I am seeking scholars who have expertise in and understanding of contemporary issues surrounding rape and sexual violence–and who can write clearly and objectively on the subject. For more information or to see the list of still available topics, please send a brief CV/bio to Merril D. Smith at as soon as possible. Put Encyclopedia of Rape and Sexual Violence in the subject heading. I would like to have all topics covered as quickly as possible. Entries will be due Spring/Summer 2016, or by August 31.


Call for Contributors: Rape Cultures and Survivors: An International Perspective

Praeger Press will publish this 2-volume book on rape cultures and survivors. Focusing on situations in war and peacetime from the late 20th century to the present, the book will examine rape and rape culture, and how survivors have coped in various social and cultural contexts. The work aims to study the characteristics and peculiarities of “rape cultures” that are intertwined with ethnic cultures/hatreds and other forms of conflictual social, political, and economic relations. Each chapter will be approximately 25-30 double-spaced manuscript-pages. The articles are meant to have a definite thesis and to argue a particular point of view. The book is aimed at both professionals and students, as well as the general public. If interested, please submit a brief (1-page) abstract and CV to the addresses below as soon as possible. Completed articles will be due before or by September 1, 2016.
