Call for Articles: DCHS Yearbook 2021

Women of Dutchess County, New York: Voices and Talents, Part II

Deadline: We are expecting submission of articles by February 1, 2021. We look forward with delight to reading your essays.

The yearbook is planned to coordinate with the Dutchess County Historical Society’s programming and continue the theme of the 2020 book by focusing on the lives and achievements of the women of our county. Topics can cover all of our history up to 50 years ago, our usual limit.

In 2021, as for the last several years, the yearbook will be divided into sections:

The Forum section will focus on essays and stories about women of Dutchess County. Articles may include topics from the more abstract such as discussions of women within historical movements to quite concrete matters such as accounts of individual residents of the county.

The Articles section will be devoted to essays on any worth- while research regarding Dutchess County history.

Please submit your article to me in digital form as a Microsoft Word document. Articles for the Forum and Articles sections should be 2,000 to 4,000 words long. If possible, please submit at least one or two images with captions with each essay. Please check for copyright clearance. Send the images separately  as  jpegs (300 dpi or larger). Images may be black-and-white or color. Please send them with the draft, the figure captions indicated in  the text (images are not an afterthought). Copyright will be shared between the Dutchess County Historical Society and the author. The author may re-issue the article in the year after it is published in the DCHS yearbook. DCHS asks that we be notified of any republication of your article.

For endnotes, please use Chicago Manual of Style.

If you have an idea for an article that you are considering, but are doubtful about, just write to me and I will be happy to discuss it.

You will find a number of Yearbooks at the link below.
