Call for proposals
CLP ACADEMIC, AN IMPRINT OF THE ACTON INSTITUTE FOR THE STUDY OF RELIGION LIBERTY, is pleased to announce a call for proposals for works to appear in Sources in Early Modern Economics, Ethics, and Law (Second Series). This series publishes original English translations and editions of early modern religious texts in the disciplines of economics, ethics, and law. In the modern era these disciplines often have been detached from the religious and theological context in which they developed. This series seeks to uncover the early modern religious foundations and contexts of these and related disciplines and to provide access to previously inaccessible texts that will contribute to interdisciplinary research. Proposals must be for either an original English translation of a work from the early modern period (ca. 1450-1725) or an edition of a previously unpublished English work from that period (e.g., a work existing only in manuscript). For the purposes of this series, the disciplines of economics, ethics, and law are broadly understood, and proposed texts may include works in the fields of political economy, moral philosophy, moral theology, social ethics, ecclesiastical law, civil law, and common law, as well as theological works that significantly engage one or more of these fields. Proposals for a translation or edition of a complete, single work are preferred, though proposals for selections of writings by a single author, or for an anthology of related selections from multiple authors, will also be considered.
SEND PROPOSALS AS AN EMAIL ATTACHMENT TO AMCGINNIS@ACTON.ORG PROPOSALS SHOULD INCLUDE THE FOLLOWING ELEMENTS: • bibliographic information on the source text and its authoritative early modern edition(s) • list of any modern editions or translations of the work • names and contact information for the proposed translator(s) or editor(s) • word count of the original source text (approximate) brief English summary of the text (approximately 350 words) • description of the text's significance in its own era andfor students and scholars today
