CFP: Acknowledging Powerlessness: Philosophical Perspectives on Twelve-Step Spirituality

This may be a good opportunity for a first time publishing philosopher. It wont we worth much on your CV but could be good experience. I am half tempted to rip into the topic based only on my aversion to such systems and the inherent recidivism they contain. An easy topic to write on and competition should be somewhat limited. 
Abstracts should be received by June 1, 2011. the last fifty years, Twelve-Step programs have had a profound impact on culture world-wide.  But these programs have not received much attention from philosophers.  We propose to begin filling this gap by publishing an anthology of philosophical essays about various aspects of Twelve-Step spirituality.We invite all who are interested in contributing to this volume to submit an abstract of 300 to 700 words. Please include a resume with your abstract.  After selecting the authors and essays to be included in the volume, we’ll be submitting the project to publishers who have expressed interest in it.  We expect to include about 15 papers in the anthology, each between 12 and 18 pages.  We hope to receive proposals that employ a variety of  philosophical perspectives and methodologies.  Essays should be both philosophically substantive and accessible to the thoughtful non-professional.  Articles that involve reflection on personal experience are welcome.
