Authors Needed: Encyclopedia of National Dress

(I’m not sure when this was first listed but it’s worth checking out if you are interested.)

The Encyclopedia of National Dress series

Authors are sought to contribute to this two-book series on national/ethnic dress. This series is intended for an undergraduate student and adult audience interested in costume history. Costume will be presented in terms of style, and design, and how it was influenced by economic, political, and cultural events of the times.

We are looking for authors to write about women’s, children’s, and men’s dress from many cultures around the world. Authors should have a master’s degree or a Ph.D. in appropriate areas such as costume history, material culture, social history, clothing and textiles, or museum studies.

The deadline for completion of this set is June 2010. For more information, please contact Jill Condra via email at

    I’ve updated the post to include her email typed out instead of a link–for some reason the link wasn’t working. Hope this is better for you.
