Dear list subscribers:

*The Palgrave* *Encyclopedia of Imperialism and Anti-Imperialism* (Palgrave
Macmillan: 2014) is inviting expressions of interest to contribute a
broad-gauge, framing essay on the topic *‘Film Festivals and Imperialism**’
(3,500-5,000 words, including minimal notes and references)* for inclusion
in the collection, a definitive peer-reviewed project of two volumes —
750,000 words, with contributions by leading specialists from throughout
the world. The *deadline for submitting the essay* would be: *by 20th
January 2013*.

At this stage, interested colleagues should provide the General Editors
with a 100-word or so proposal of how they would approach the topic. The
first colleague whose proposal reaches us, and fits in best with the aims
and objectives of the collection, would be assigned the essay.

The essays in *The Palgrave* *Encyclopedia of Imperialism and
Anti-Imperialism* go beyond description to an analysis of the major
currents in each of the topics. In this respect, *The Palgrave* *Encyclopedia
of Imperialism and Anti-Imperialism* is a scholarly-reference work.
Scholarly-reference counts for academic purposes equivalently to almost all
refereed journal articles.

*The Palgrave Encyclopedia of Imperialism and Anti-Imperialism *will be a
scholarly reference work that will include the most current literature on
the subject. The project will have a broad readership attracting academics
and graduate and upper-level undergraduate students studying imperialism
and anti-imperialism across the globe. It will also be peer-reviewed by a
host of leading scholars spanning the academic disciplines.  The
contributor names will be listed prominently below the title of essays with
the biography in the beginning of the work. The same version of* The* *Palgrave
Encyclopedia of Imperialism and Anti-Imperialism *will appear in hard copy
and online.

Thank you for considering, as we are confident you will find this project a
major contribution to historical studies and new social research on world
history, humanities, and social sciences. By now, given that we have so
many contributors who are leading scholars of imperialism, we are confident
that this project will make an important contribution to the literature.

With best regards and wishes,

Saër Maty Bâ and Immanuel Ness
