We are inviting academic editorial contributors to the Multimedia
Encyclopedia of
Women in Today's World, a new online library reference that will look at
women today
around the world and delve into the contexts of being female in the 21st
Thus the scope of the encyclopedia will focus on women's status starting in
approximately 2000 and look forward.
The new work will supplement the 4-volume print and online edition of the
encyclopedia already in production. The 500 signed entries (with
and recommended readings) will cover issues in contemporary women's and
studies and the articles will include information relevant to the
following academic
disciplinary contexts: women in different cultures/countries; arts and media;
business and economics; criminal justice; education; family studies;
health; media;
military; politics; science and technology; sports; environmental studies;
We are making assignments that are due March 2, 2012.

available to
students via the library's electronic services. The General Editors, who
will be
reviewing each submission to the project, are Dr. Mary Zeiss Stange of
College, and Dr. Carol K. Oyster of the University of Wisconsin-La Crosse.
