Deadline extended for the 2023 Peter Lang Emerging Scholars Competition in Indigenous Studies

Peter Lang Publishing is delighted to announce the 2023 Peter Lang Emerging Scholars Competition in Indigenous Studies.

Proposals are invited from emerging scholars in Indigenous Studies for single-author books to be evaluated by a distinguished editorial board. We are particularly welcoming work on Australian Indigenous Studies for consideration in the Australian Studies: Interdisciplinary Perspectives book series, edited by Anne Brewster, affiliated with the InASA.

Proposals should be submitted to or via our webform by 30 September 2023 and consist of an abstract (including chapter synopses), a sample chapter (5,000 to 10,000 words in length), a CV, and statement describing how you are an emerging scholar, in separate Microsoft Word documents. Proposals under review elsewhere should not be submitted.

The winner(s) will be offered a Gold Open Access contract for their book. Winning book(s) will be made available for free digital download as part of our efforts to increase accessibility. Planned manuscripts should be from 40,000 to 80,000 words in length and written in English. Authors will be expected to prepare the manuscript in accordance with the style guidelines provided.

Decisions will be made by 1 December 2023 and the winners will be notified shortly thereafter.
