CALL FOR SUBMISSIONS

Race, Gender, Disability and Employment in Higher Education: Real Employment Experiences by Real People

I am soliciting submissions for an anthology tentatively titled Race, Gender,  Disability and Employment in Higher Education: Real Employment Experiences by  Real People, with the intention of having it published and distributed by the Association on Higher Education and Disability (AHEAD) in 2007.  I am specifically seeking personal stories and/or scholarly works written by and about employees with disabilities, and their employment-related  experiences in higher education. Writers are requested to identify their  racial/cultural backgrounds, gender, and description of their impairments  when submitting works (will be included in any published bio statements), as  well as their status as either current or past higher education employees. Tentative topics may include works addressing: Challenges; Passing  (experiences related to invisibility, and/or shielding ones' identity);  Coming Out (experiences related to becoming comfortable and "open" about any  combination of identities); Relationships (may involve sexual orientation and  other sexual experiences); Accommodations, Consequences, and Other (I am open  to "other" possibilities and experiences contributors might offer). This publication has great potential to be appealing to those interested in disability studies, diversity studies, psychology, sociology and other  academic departments as well as AHEAD Members, and the students served.  

To be considered for the anthology, writers are invited to submit a draft  manuscript outline or proposal to the editor by May 5, 2007. Final original,  unpublished manuscripts of up to 8,000 words (approximately 10 to 25 typed  pages in 12-point type), double-spaced, and printed on one side of the paper are due to the editor December 1, 2007. Earlier completed submissions encouraged. Target publication date is expected to be summer 2007. Submissions must be typed as a Microsoft word document and sent  electronically to the editor, along with a cover sheet with the writer's name, address, telephone number, email address, and brief biographical paragraph which includes racial/cultural identification, gender and  disability diagnosis. Submissions will not be returned.

Submissions and questions are to be directed to the editor, Dr. Mary Lee Vance at mvance@uwsuper.edu
