Call for Authors for History of Human Spaces Series

RESTAURANT and OFFICE
History of Human Spaces series
Praeger Publishing

Praeger Publishing, an academic publisher, based in Santa Barbara, California (praeger.com<http://praeger.com/>) is seeking authors for two titles in our History of Human Spaces series. This series explores the history of spaces, both public and private, and the objects typically associated with those spaces. Each 70-80,000 word volume will utilize those objects and spaces to reflect on larger social, economic, and cultural themes. Each volume will focus on North America from colonial times to the present-day, but will include an introductory chapter tracing the history of the space from the beginnings of Western (or, in some cases, world) history. The series will start with eight titles: bedroom, bathroom, kitchen (private); office, school, factory, bar/tavern, and restaurant. Six titles have thus far been assigned. We are looking for authors for the RESTAURANT and OFFICE titles.

We are seeking academics in the fields of material culture, social history, and related fields. Interested parties should contact acquisitions editor James Ciment at james.ciment@ca.rr.com<mailto:james.ciment@ca.rr.com>. Please attach a CV.
