Call for Papers for Edited Collection on Satellites Down to Earth: Satellite Technologies, Industries and Cultures

Editors, Lisa Parks (UCSB) and James Schwoch (Northwestern)

The satellite era marks its 50th anniversary in October 2007. This anthology aims to expand awareness and knowledge about satellites beyond a base of talented specialists and experts. As such, this edited volume aims to more fully chart satellites into the maps and atlases of global media knowledge, and do so in both historical and contemporary settings. Toward that end, we issue this call for book chapters and materials for an edited collection. PROPOSALS: 250-500 word abstract (and full essay if already written), select bibliography, and brief biographical statement with the subject heading “Down to Earth” to both editors via e-mail at:

James Schwoch ([email protected]) Lisa Parks ([email protected])

DEADLINE: July 15, 2007. Completed essays will be due in Fall 2008. THIS ANNOUNCEMENT IS AN ABRIDGED LISTSERV VERSION OF A LONGER CALL FOR PAPERS. We are glad to send a copy of the full version, just e-mail one of us.
