AAR-SW Friends,

Editor Alexandra Kindell has issued a final Call for Contributors to help complete the World of Antebellum America encyclopedia. See below for the call for contributors and list of available entries.


Call for contributions to the antebellum America installment in the Daily Life encyclopedia series published by ABC-Clio.

This is the last call for contributions in the Daily Life series volumes on antebellum America. If you are interested in contributing, please contact Dr. Alexandra Kindell at alexkindell@gmail.com as soon as possible.
