2011 new volume on cultures of the ABC Islands

New call for papers
2011 volume on the Languages, Literatures and Cultures of the ABC Islands

The University of the Netherlands Antilles and the Fundashon pa Planifikashon di Idioma are once again interested in publishing a new set of papers on the Languages, Literatures, and Cultures of the ABC Islands. Our goal this coming year is to have this next volume printed and ready for distribution by November 2011. You and any of your colleagues on the ABC islands who you think might be interested are invited to take advantage of this excellent chance to share the exciting work that you are doing with other scholars worldwide.

The deadline for you to submit your paper for this publication is 1 april 2011. The paper may be anywhere from 4 to 10 pages in length and may be written in English, Dutch, Spanish, or Papiamentu/o. We will take care of translations into English. If you are able to do so, please submit your work formatted according to the following guidelines. (If you are not able to reformat the work, submit it anyway, and we will do it for you):

1) A Word file of a total length of from 4 to 10 pages
2) 13 point New Times Roman font
3) A4 paper size (rather than US ‘Letter’ size)
4) If possible, use 1.15 interlinear spacing. If not, use single spacing.
5) 1 inch margins on all 4 sides and bottom center page numbering
6) as a separate file or files: A very short bio (maximum 75 words). Please include your email address at the end of the bio, and a digital face photo. If we already have a bio and/or a photo of you from a previous volume, you do not need to send new ones.
7) please sends papers, bios and photos to:

Please note that the paper itself should be submitted as w Word file (not a PDF or Word Perfect file) by 1 april 2011. We would also like to remind you that you may go ahead and send the paper file immediately and send the bio and photo file(s) later. Please don’t let the logistics of writing a bio and digitalizing a photo delay the process of sending your paper to us. Go ahead and send the paper now and the bio and the photo later.

We have considerable experience in minimizing the time from submission to publication. If we receive sufficient numbers of papers by 1 april 2011, we should be able to have another high quality peer reviewed volume published by November 2011.

Here’s to another successful volume,

The Editorial Team: Nick Faraclas (Universidad de Puerto Rico); Ronnie Severing (Fundashon pa Planifikashon di Idioma); Christa Weijer (Fundashon pa Planifikashon di Idioma); and Liesbeth Echteld (University of the Netherlands Antilles)
