Contributors Needed for Sports Encyclopedia

A retired professor at Penn State, Murry Nelson is editing a four volume encyclopedia on sports in American pop culture with an audience of general readers for purchase by libraries. According to Nelson the work "is intended for a 2013 publication from Greenwood Press and will have about 450 entries of varying lengths. I still have about 65-70 that need authors and thought that a few of these might be good topics for grad students or junior faculty (or senior, if any would be interested). It's a chance for publication and fun topics to pursue."

If you're interested, take a look at the attached list (media-related topics have an asterisk to make them easier to find). If you see a topic you'd like to write about, please get in touch with Murry directly. His email: mrn2@psu.edu.

This is an excellent way to contribute to the field - and to build our sub-discipline. Give serious consideration to Nelson's request for entries as this will surely add to the growing body of work in sports communication - and provide further evidence of the worth of our pursuits/findings to the general public.
