Call for Proposals
The Jesuitica Project is inviting proposals for a neatly illustrated publication on the occasion of its 20th anniversary in January 2024.
The publication will focus on the plethora of academic research that has been carried out over the past 20 years with a specific link to the Jesuitica collections at the Maurits Sabbe Library. Preferably, contributions meet usual scholarly expectations, but are suitable reading material for a broader public as well. The ideal article counts between 1,500 and 2,000 words (incl. a short bibliography and a limited amount of footnotes). We also invite you to make suggestions for two large full page illustrations (or one full page illustration and two half page images or an equivalent).
Please send in your proposal (max 400 words) for an article before February 1st 2022 to jesuitica @ kuleuven.be. The full text of the articles must be submitted by October 1st 2022 at the latest.
Proposals and articles should be written in English. Please forward this message to anyone you think may be interested.
If you have any questions about the book and contributions, please do not hesitate to contact us (jesuitica @ kuleuven.be).
