1. The central question the research aims to answer.

2. A preliminary thesis.

3. A brief bibliography.

4. A brief statement of the writer’s experience or training.

Please include the following in the heading of the proposal: name, occupation, address, phone number, e-mail address and a working title. Proposals must be submitted electronically as an attached Word, WordPerfect or PDF document to patty_smith@byu.edu by April 28, 2008.

Submitters will be notified of their proposal’s status by June 2, 2008, after which, final drafts ranging from 15-25 pages will be due Oct. 6, 2008.
