The editors welcome appropriate proposals, especially those that contribute to the sustainability themes.
Format for proposals
- 1,000-1,500 word description of the proposed seminar
This description will be enlarged as the first chapter of the intended volume to be produced subsequent to the seminar.
- list of (ideally) 10 participants and abstracts of their contributions/essays
Essays for the seminar should be about 5,000 words. One of the seminar participants and/or the seminar organizer(s) will write a concluding chapter synthesizing the chapters and discussions of the seminar.
- description of how the seminar may lead to “action”/policy recommendation
- description of stakeholders who may be invited to the seminar

Most seminars will typically take place for 4-5 days at the Amerind Foundation.
- The proposal will be evaluated by the editorial board of the series and, as appropriate, by members of the advisory board or outside reviewers.
- Written comments/critiques from all reviewers will be sent to the proposer(s) of the seminar who will then respond to the comments.
- Successful applicants will be informed, and seminar logistics arranged by School of Sustainability and Amerind Foundation staff.
- A contract will be issued by Cambridge University Press to the seminar organizer(s).
- The seminar organizer(s) will collect revised and enlarged chapters from the participants and submit these to the editorial board.
- One or more readers will then review the volume and convey comments to the volume editors.
- When these comments have been considered by the volume editors and a revised text is submitted to the series editors, the full manuscript will be sent to Cambridge University Press for production.
