[xmca] CFA: SAGE Sociology of Education-James Ainsworth, Ph.D

CALL FOR AUTHORS: Sociology of Education: An A-to-Z Guide
edited by James Ainsworth

Susan Moskowitz

We are inviting academic editorial contributors to Sociology of Education:
An A-to-Z Guide, a 2-volume library reference to be published in 2013 by
SAGE Publications. Assignments are being made with a submission deadline 
of December 19, 2011.

The sociology of education is a rich interdisciplinary field that studies
schools as their own social worlds as well as their place within the
larger society. The field draws contributions from education, sociology, 
human development and family studies, economics, politics and public
policy, and elsewhere. The Sociology of Education: An A-to-Z Guide will
introduce students to the social constructions of our educational systems
and their many players, including students and their peers, teachers, 
parents, the broader community, politicians and policy makers. The roles
of schools, the social processes governing schooling, and impacts on
society will all be examined and critically explored. The articles will 
be accompanied by pedagogical elements, including a Reader’s Guide,
Chronology, Resource Guide, Glossary, Appendix, and thorough Index. 

This comprehensive work will be marketed and sold to college, public, and
academic libraries and includes some 400 articles, covering all aspects of
the sociology of education and related disciplines in the social sciences,
including terms and practices, biographies, and descriptions of education
around the world. 

Each article, ranging from 800 to 3,500 words, is signed by the
contributor. The General Editor of the encyclopedia is James Ainsworth,
Ph.D., Georgia State University, who will review all the articles for
editorial content and academic consistency.

If you are interested in contributing to the encyclopedia, it can be a
notable publication addition to your CV/resume and broaden your publishing
credits. Payment for the articles are honoraria that range from a $50 book
credit from Sage Publications for article submissions totaling 500 to
1,000 words up to a free copy of the encyclopedia for contributions
totaling 10,000 words. More than this, your involvement can help assure
that credible and detailed data, descriptions, and analysis are available
to students of the sociology of education.

The list of available articles (Excel file), Style Guidelines, and sample
article are prepared and will be sent to you in response to your inquiry.
Please then select which unassigned articles may best suit your interests
and expertise. 

If you would like to contribute to building a truly outstanding reference
with Sociology of Education: An A-to-Z Guide, please contact me by the
