Subject: CFP: 'IGRS Books' (Publications in Modern Languages)

Call for Proposals
Proposals are invited for the 2008 competition to publish in 'IGRS Books', a new book series in Modern Languages (French, German, Italian, Portuguese, Spanish and comparative studies, in fields other than linguistics). The series is published by the Institute of Germanic & Romance Studies, University of London.
Proposals for monographs, conference volumes, or thematically-linked collections of essays, between 30,000 and 100,000 words in length, may be submitted for selection by the IGRS's editorial committee, which is advised by a peer review committee of 36 senior academics in the field. Volumes should be written in English throughout; fiction and translations of works already published in other languages cannot be considered.
Complete texts of the selected books will be required by the IGRS in camera-ready copy, prepared in accordance with a template supplied by the Institute, at which time authors will also be asked to contribute a subvention of 200. The expectation is that authors will supply the full text approximately one year after acceptance of the proposal.
Proposals should be submitted by Monday, 31 March 2008 to Professor Naomi Segal, Director of the IGRS, via email to [log in to unmask], and should comprise three files only, as follows:
