A new, open access series for March 2013
Inspired by the rise of Open Access, Print-on-Demand publishers seeking to cross the academic/ popular divide, HammerOn Press is calling for book proposals for the new HammerOpen Series, launching in March 2013.
HammerOpen will contribute to the rejuvenation of public intellectual culture that is currently underway. Publishers such as Open Humanities Press, re: press, Punctum Books and Zer0 Books are redefining how and why critical writing is distributed. Books in the HammerOpen Series will also do this. They will push boundaries, challenge received wisdom and circulate radical ideas in creative, accessible ways.
Are you passionate about communication? Are you committed to creating knowledge that is both useful and transformative? If yes is your answer to these questions, then HammerOpen may be a place for your work.
Writing that creatively uses feminist, queer, post-colonial, dis/ ability, critical race, object orientated and/ or post-anthropocentric theory is particularly welcome in the series.
Submissions can be from single-authors, for edited collections and anything in-between. Books published will ideally be between 40,000-100,000 words long.
Please submit your speculative proposals in a single Word.doc document including the following information:
* 500 word proposal
* Outline of contents, inc. word length of book
· * Schedule for writing, including proposed manuscript delivery date
· * Short biography/ CV
· * Short statement stating why you are responding to this call
· * Suggested peer reviewers for your manuscript
Deadline: 1 February 2012
