ASA Teaching Resources Center Call for Proposals
Seeking new career materials for MA and PhD sociologists
Are you currently doing research on the careers of sociologists? Has your department established an excellent program that helps graduate students find jobs? Do you have tried-and-true strategies for the job market that you have developed over years of advising graduate students? If so, the ASA Academic and Professional Affairs Program (APAP) is seeking collaboration in the production of two new career publications.
A variety of models for production of these resources could be considered, including a single-author volume, collaboration among a group of authors, an edited volume with a clear theme and coherent progression among the chapters, or a collaboration between one or more authors and staff from the ASA APAP, Minority Affairs Program, and Research and Development Department.
Interested authors or editors should send a 3- to 5-page proposal, including a description of the book concept, a plan for the book with potential chapter titles, a description of the specific types of data that will be used and places that they will be incorporated, as well as a timeframe for completion. A cover letter should describe how the authors’ or editors’ background and experience qualify them to write, edit, or collaborate on a book of this kind. Curriculum vitae for each author or editor should also be included.
Review of proposals will begin December 1 and will continue until two book plans are selected. Send proposals as attachments to firstname.lastname@example.org. If you have questions or would like further clarification, call Margaret Weigers Vitullo at (202) 383-9005 x323.
