Native Peoples of the World seeking contributors
Native Peoples of the World, to be published by the acclaimed academic reference publishing house, M.E. Sharpe, will be a first-of-its-kind global look at the Indigenous people groups of the world, the nations where they live, and the issues that impact their lives.

This three-volume work, edited by Steven L. Danver and associate editors Marc Becker, Patit Mishra, Barbara Bennett Peterson, Hakeem Tijani, and Harald Haarmann; will examine the complex relationships between the world's indigenous groups and the societies that surround them. Of particular interest will be borderlands issues that arise when indigenous groups are either migratory across international borders or have territories that span international borders. It will serve both as a primer for people wishing to learn about indigenous relations worldwide, and a ready-reference resource for people wishing to easily locate information on specific groups, nations, and topics. Because of its organization and different types of entries, it will provide both a depth and a breadth of information, making it an indispensable resource on the topic. They are currently looking for contributors to write many of the entries for this work, many of which have to do with Central and South America. Please send a copy of your c.v. to contributors@mesaverdepublishing.com if you are possibly interested in participating in this reference work, and we will be happy to forward you a copy of the entry list.

Social Science Research Council (SSRC)--Dissertation Proposal Development Fellowship (DPDF)
Deadline: October 1, 2010
The Dissertation Proposal Development Fellowship (DPDF) is designed to help early-stage graduate students in the humanities and social sciences formulate more effective doctoral dissertation proposals. Senior tenured faculty serve as research directors who identify research fields for groups of 12 graduate students. The faculty research directors design two workshops: one to prepare students to undertake summer research that will inform the design of their dissertation proposal, held in spring; the other to help students apply their summer research experiences to writing dissertation and funding proposals, held in the fall. Working together, research directors and graduate students help shape emerging fields in the humanities and social sciences. For more information or to view the application please go to http://www.ssrc.org/fellowships/dpdf-faculty-fields-competition/.

Manuscript Solicitation for a Special Issue of the Comparative Education Review
Deadline June 30, 2011
This special issue of the Comparative Education Review will bring together scholarship that examines how and why teacher education reform ideas circulate globally, how and why they inform policy, and how and why they influence practice. Of particular interest are multi-country comparative studies, which analyze how ideas regarding policy and practice flow (and/or are filtered) between these countries or from another source, and how those ideas are shaped to fit the unique contexts into which they are introduced.

Manuscripts (prepared according to CER guidelines) should be submitted to the CER Editorial Manager system (http://www.editorialmanager.com/cer) for consideration by June 30, 2011. Prior submission or communication with the Guest Editors (Lynn Paine (Michigan State University) and Ken Zeichner (University of Washington)) is strongly encouraged. The Guest Editors will assume first-cut responsibility for deciding whether a submitted manuscript fits the theme of the special issue and is sufficiently developed to warrant double-blind external review.
