The edited book project, Hard Cash, that Stephen Dunne and myself are organizing is entering a new phase. We’ve got promises (some a little vague so far, but that’s what thumbscrews were invented for) from 18 authors (including several members of CPPE). Topics range widely as expected, including the strongly empirical, the purely theoretical, the historical, the psychoanalytic and the downright strange. It’s looking very good. Any tardy CPPE-ers out there who still want to chip something in can do so, but you better be quick.
The project will be the subject of a two-day workshop on 6th and 7th December this year hosted by ULSM, at which we hope to bring together as many of the authors as possible for a pre-writing exchange of ideas and general party. Attendance contingent on the promise of a chapter….
Beyond that, the first submission deadline for chapters will be the end of May 2013. In the intervening period, as well as writing our own sparkling contributions, Stephen and I will be hassling publishers of various stripes in the hope that they will not only publish it, but even give us money – hard cash, of course – to do so.
