We are pleased to inform you that your chapter abstract for the anthology entitled Vodou: I Remember: The Idea of Vodou in Haitian Thought, Literature, Music, and Art edited by Drs. Celucien L. Joseph, Asselin Charles, Shallum Pierre, and Nixon S. Cleophat has been accepted. Please be advised of the following instructions:
1. Vodou Spelling
The spelling “Voodoo” or “Voodooism” has been changed to “Vodou” by the Library of Congress. Vodou is the most accurate spelling designating the religion practiced by most Haitians. Please be consistent in the usage of the term.
PSD was petitioned by a group of scholars and practitioners of vodou to change the spelling of the heading Voodooism. They successfully argued that vodou is the more accurate spelling, and that the spelling “voodoo” has become pejorative. The base heading was revised to Vodou on this list, and all other uses of the word “voodoo” in references and scope notes have also been revised.”
2. Manuscripts and Style Guide
Manuscripts must be computer generated in Microsoft Word and submitted electronically via e-mail to email@example.com or firstname.lastname@example.org.
