Scholars working in the area of history of evolutionary studies in Britain between WW1 and WW2 are invited to participate in a publishing project on the subject. The goal is to create an anthology of peer-reviewed scholarly papers that both add substantively to the topic and relate the subject to historiographical themes in the broader history of science community.

This follows the successful publishing project:

Joe Cain and Michael Ruse (editors). 2009. Descended from Darwin: Insights into the History of Evolutionary Studies, 1900-1970 (Philadelphia: PA: American Philosophical Society. Transactions of the American Philosophical Society, volume 99, part 1).

Individual papers in this volume now are available online:

The aim is to follow this timeline: 15 Sep 2009 deadline for paper submissions, Winter 2009-2010 review and editorial work; Spring 2010 publication. During the review process, participants will be encouraged to comment constructively on other manuscripts in the volume. Final papers should be in the 8-12K word range, notes inclusive. Precise format to be described later.
